After several trips to Dublin, this time I decided to visit the Casino Marino and I'm very glad that I did. What an impressive structure! The tour guide was wonderful and so happy to share the building's history and design features.
I decided to use the local Dublin Bus system to head out to Malahide Castle (Bus 42 from Eden Quay) and then on our return trip, make an extra stop by getting off at the Dooneycarney stop (Mount Temple School on the left can be a marker for when you are nearing the bus stop.) When we got off of the bus I was worried that we had been misdirected. There was a pub and a pharmacy right as we got off the bus, but nothing else. I went into the pharmacy and they assured me that I was in the right place. They told me to cross the street, walk up past the Dublin Fire Brigade Training Headquarters entrance and then I would see it on my left. It seemed like we were going too far up the street, but her directions were spot on...trust yourself as you walk past a residential area before reaching the correct street. (Another marker for you to check is the golf course entrance that is across the street.) Once you look left after the residential area you will see a sign and initial entrance for the Casino. You then have to turn left again and walk up a rather long driveway to the actual building. (A considerable walk, but very easy to do once you know where you're going.)
Touring this historical building was definitely worth the walk and bit of confusion getting there.
