The Casino, Marino
The Casino is considered to be one of the finest 18th century neo-classical buildings in Europe.
Designed by Sir William Chambers as a pleasure house for James Caulfield, 1st Earl of Charlemont, The Casino meaning 'small house', surprisingly contains 16 rooms spread over 3 levels, some of which are finely decorated with ornate plasterwork and richly patterned marquetry floors.
It is a box of tricks, full of illusions and architectural devices.
Entry to the casino is by guided tour only. As the interior is accessed by a stairway there is limited disabled access.
In order to protect the inlaid floors visitors will not be permitted to wear shoes. Free disposable footwear will be provided.
March to May & September open 10am-5pm.
June to September 10am – 6pm.
