When it comes to Republic of Ireland gambling, Dublin is unsurprisingly the place where most of it is happening. The capital city is home to ten casinos, most of which are of a very high quality, including the Sporting Emporium. You will find this three-storey casino near Grafton Street, and it has won awards for the quality of the casino games and the customer service – including the very prestigious award for ‘Best Casino Club’. The Gaming Emporium has games designed to suit all budgets and abilities, from regular high roller gamblers to novices on a much lower budget.

It is the Card Room that is particularly popular here though, thanks to the range of poker variants on offer – but this is perhaps the most luxurious and well-appointed casino in the Republic. However, if you can bear to leave it, you will find plenty of other great casino options – with the Westbury Club being one of them. Like other Republic of Ireland casinos this takes the form of a private club, as this is the only way casino gambling is legal under the Gaming and Lotteries Act of 1956, but the atmosphere here is friendly and exciting. There is a floor set aside solely for slot machines, making it maybe the best Irish casino for fans of these games. There are also pool and snooker tables for those who need a break away from the intensity of the casino games.

One of the most popular casinos within the city of Dublin is the Fitzwilliam Casino and Card Club, in the street of the same name. This has earned itself a reputation as the friendliest and most welcoming of the casinos there, making it an ideal place for first time visitors to Ireland to gamble at. It is open 24/7 and has a really good poker room, with some of the best tournaments to be found in any Southern Irish casino – although, due to their popularity, you will need to book in advance if you want to enter one of these.
