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, the first Earl of Charlemont.
The Casino, meaning ‘small house’, surprisingly contains 16 finely decorated rooms, endlessly rich in subtlety and design. It is a remarkable building both in terms of structure and history.
The interior is decorated with ornate plasterwork and richly patterned marquetry floors. A visit to the Casino will reveal the many clever architectural illusions, implemented by its architect and builder.
Please note that access is via flights of stone steps.
