my wife gave her permission for me to play cards, the last night in Dublin, and my Irish friends told me that the Fitz was "the" place to play! Sure, it's not Vegas, but not a bad card room. I won about 600Euro playing 1/2 no limit hold 'em, and there were other games going on, too, like Omaha, which surprised me a little. I hope to play here again..

Hi Raydioman61. Thanks for taking the time to review and I am glad you enjoyed our poker room. The Fitz has the biggest range of cash games in Dublin (Omaha and Hold'em) and Hold'em tournaments start every night at 8:00pm. Looking forward to welcoming you back!

I am not a fanatic gambler, but yesterday I joined a friend there... I've always thought it was a posh place and i was expecting something different to be honest. The room is big but "packed" there no space between tables... it's very bright on a side... darker on the other... basically it looks old. It is not very appealing.... on the other side.... croupiers and staff in general is very polite helpful and nice. I had fun but I believe this place needs a bit of improvements....

It was my first visit to the Fitzwilliam Club over the weekend and I was pleasantly surprised. All the staff I encountered were extremely friendly and efficient from the initial registration at reception through to all the dealers, floor staff etc. etc. I went there to meet up with some friends from London who were over for a tournament and played in same and also in the regular Sunday night game and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would have no hesitation in recommending the Fitzwilliam Club to whoever wanted a friendly, efficient, convenient and comfortable gaming experience.

Having visit and gambled in casinos throughout the states, I was surprised by the atmosphere of the Fitzwilliam card club. My wife and I and two other friends visited on a Saturday evening and were expecting it to be similiar to the type of crowds most US casinos would have at that time of day on a Saturday. But, we were the only ones in the casino, besides the dealers, who were mostly sitting around watching TV. It honestly was the most quite casino I have ever been to. However, our dealer was very nice and made our time there enjoyable. Table minimum was three euros but you cannot drink alcohol or smoke in the casino. Overall it was a good time, just strange atmosphere to what we are used to. We did double our money, which made everyone happy. If I'm ever back in Dublin, I will definitely return. But do not expect the Vegas experience here. Not even Atlantic City.

Thanks for the review Chris. Typically on weekend nights, the action tends to happen a little later in the evening, while during the week, the Club will get busy earlier on. Glad you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

I went here late on Friday night (about 1am) with my girlfriend. She had never been to a casino before and we wanted to have a bit of fun for an hour or so. Friendly greeting by the lady at the front desk and the membership (free) sign up was quick, with a free €10 bet included. We had a little game of roulette and the dealer was patient with my girlfriend when she was asking about different bets, same with the blackjack dealer who also advised her when to take a card and when not to and also explained the reason why each time. There was a regular player at the BJ table too and he was extremely patient while the dealer was explaining things.

So, very helpful and friendly staff with friendly local punters. A great place to spend an hour for some fun if you don't fancy the pub. They also have a whole range of Poker and Omaha games but we didn't play these. Highly recommended though.
