Fitzpatrick Casino Group have got gaming houses all over Ireland with the Dublin branch having been recently refurbished to make it one of the most luxurious around. Located in Parnell Street in the centre of the city, the venue actually has been a casino under various different managements since the 1980s. Open 24 hours a day every day of the week, this is the place to go if you’re in central Dublin and hoping to spend some time on top of the range slot machines.
Membership of the casino isn’t necessarily required, but you’d be silly not put your name down for it regardless. Full members get to enter special competitions with both daily and monthly prizes on offer, as well having the ability to join the loyalty scheme and earn points the more they play. All you need to do is take along some identification when you go to the club for the first time and they’ll talk you through the rest.

It’s very difficult to write about the Fitzpatrick Casino in Dublin without writing such puns as ‘You’ll have slots of fun!’ That’s mainly because the selection of slot machines here are almost second to none. Jackpots are given out roughly every ten minutes throughout the casino’s group and the big jackpot’s are shown on screen in every location. The slots are the newest available and the casino will double any wins that you experience on their 77777 machines. Not a bad offer at all!
Owing to the fact that the Dublin branch of the Fitzpatrick Group contains no table games, Blackjack is not something that you’ll be able to play here.
Electronic games are the order of the day in the Dublin casino, so you won’t be able to stand next to loads of other people and throw chips onto the table if you want to play a bit of roulette. That doesn’t mean it’s not available, though. Instead it’s electronic roulette that you’ll be playing. In some ways it’s better with no need to keep your eye on your chips or count out your winnings – the computer will do it all for you.
There is a Wheel Of Fortune type game where you get to spin a big wheel and win a prize if you land on the same thing three times. That’s about the sum total of the ‘other games’ you’ll be able to play should you turn up at the Fitzpatrick Casino in Dublin.
Poker isn’t available in this Dublin-based casino with the Casino Group’s Dun Laoghaire and Limerick venues being the main venues where you can play the world’s most popular card game.
Bars & Restaurants
There’s neither a restaurant nor a bar available here, though you’ll still be able to have a bite to eat and a drink should you want to. There’s a small kitchen area where you can make a hot drink or pour yourself a cold one, as well as vending machines in a couple of places.
To become a member you simply need to go along to the club with an ID, such as your driving license and passport, as well as a utility bill that isn’t too old. It really is that simple. Just ask at reception for more details, including a breakdown of the benefits that come with your membership.
The Fitzpatrick Casino Group offers a Loyalty Scheme that gives members the ability to collect points with each Euro that they spend. Points, as they say, mean prizes. Gather points and get rewarded in numerous ways such as free bets.
The recent refurbishments to the casino have made it one of the nicest in Dublin City. Fitzpatrick Casino Group has ensured that all of the furniture and fittings in the Dublin branch are luxurious and modern. As well as such brilliant surroundings there are also some of the newest and most exciting slot machines in the country. Well worth popping in for. The casino is on the Northern side of the Liffey just up the road from the Ilac Shopping Centre, virtually next door to the Rotunda Hospital. If you want a more noticeable landmark then Fitzpatrick’s Casino is on the other side of the river to Dublin Castle, almost directly as the crow flies.
Dublin is perfect for public transport options and the casino is ideally placed to take advantage of them. Connolly Train Station is about five minutes walk away, which is perfect. There are also about six bus stops all within a short walk of the venue, meaning there are plenty of options for you if you’d rather get the bus than the train. The closest is the Gate Hotel stop, whilst Parnell Street stop itself is on the other side of the casino. If you want to take public transport to get to the casino then it won’t be found wanting.
