Cork is the home of the world famous Blarney Stone, rumoured to give you the ability to talk your way out of anything. It might be worth heading there before you try out one of the city’s three casinos in the hope that you can bluff your way to victory on the poker tables.
Map of Casinos in Cork
There are two Macau Casinos in Ireland and Cork is fortunate enough to boast the company’s premier venue. The Macau Casino Cork is a comfortable and luxurious place to spend a bit of time and given there’s a restaurant onsite you won’t even need to leave if you don’t want to. Well, as long as you’re there when it’s open from 6am to 6pm. There are slot machines, places to play Blackjack and Roulette tables for you to use, as well as a dedicated poker room here.
The opulence of the Macau stands in contrast to the more simplistic stylings of The Gold Rush Card Club, located near to the River Lee that runs through the city. As you may have guessed from the title, this is a place for people who love card games above all else, so there are no slot machines here. There are various poker tournaments you can enter, however, so if that’s your game then this may be the place for you.
The city’s casino options are rounded off by The Bank Casino, which stands between the two sides of the River Lee. It’s open from 9pm on Mondays and 11pm the rest of the week and doesn’t shut until the enjoyably vague time of ‘late’. Much like with The Gold Rush, there aren’t any slots here, so it’s the Macau you’ll want to head to if you’re a fan of electronic gaming. There’s Blackjack, Roulette and plenty of Poker to go for though, with both Omaha and Texas Hold’Em available at various times.
