Caesar’s Palace is located in the Southern part of Galway, about a minute or so from the beach and the sea. It advertises itself as the city’s favourite amusement arcade and bingo hall but is actually so much more than that. It is a great place to spend some time with a top atmosphere and plenty of casino games to choose from.
The place is open from nine in the morning until six in the morning seven days a week, meaning that you can enjoy some fun and responsible casino action whenever you fancy. If you’d like to enter the casino then just make sure you take along some valid photographic ID when you attend for the first time. This, combined with completing a form, will be enough to allow you entry.
Caesar’s Palace Galway
There are loads of slot machines to choose from at Caesar’s Palace. It calls itself an ‘amusement arcade’ but a slot emporium would be just as valid a name. Plenty of the most recent games are to be found here, so you could just as easily be in Las Vegas as Galway.
Caesar’s Palace is mostly about the computerised devices and that includes the Blackjack. It’s no less fun, of course, as the machines do all of the hard work for you so you don’t need to sit there trying to figure out how much you need to bet!
There are several electronic roulette machines to keep you entertained. These are great fun if you’ve never used them before, not least because you don’t have to make polite conversation with the people around you if you don’t want to. There is a real wheel in the middle of several computer screens, so you can see the ball spinning and get the thrill of watching it land.
The games machines are the draw in the casino, but the bingo room is arguably the main attraction at Caesar’s Palace. You can play both book and electronic bingo and there are games on every single night of the week. Unlike the rest of the casino the bingo hall opens at seven with early bird events at 7.30pm and 8pm and the main game taking place at 8.30pm. There are day games too, should that take your fancy.
Much like with the roulette, the poker here is computerised. In Las Vegas video poker is one of the most popular games around with people playing it casually whilst sat eating dinner or lunch. Now you can find out what all the fuss is about!
Bars & Restaurants
There’s no bar or restaurant, per se, but there is an area where you can sit and enjoy complimentary teas, coffees and, most excitingly of all, biscuits.
You need to be over eighteen to enter and gamble in Caesar’s Palace so, naturally, you need to be able to prove that. Your best bet is to take along a photo ID, such as your driving license or passport. If you’d like to be doubly safe then you might also consider taking a recent utility bill with you too. You’ll need to fill in a form in order to be able to become a member and take advantage of their player rewards scheme, too.
There’s an excellent player rewards scheme in place at Caesar’s Palace. In fact, it’s probably no exaggeration to say it’s one of the best in Ireland. It’s called the Vantage Club and there are three different levels to the scheme. Gold is the standard membership and provides such joys as members-only promotions, whilst Platinum sees you get a welcome pack and special offers on your birthday. Diamond is the top-level package and here you’ll enjoy everything that the other two levels provide, as well as a Diamond welcome pack and discounts for the bingo.
Caesar’s Palace is right on the bottom end of town, not far from the bottom of Claude Toft Park. Galway’s aquarium is just minutes away on foot with Christ the King’s church being almost visible from the casino’s front door. You’re also probably about five-minutes away from Pearse Stadium – County Galway’s main GAA stadium.
If you’re all about the public transport, then you’ll be pleased to know that there are a number of bus stops within walking distance of the casino. The closest is unquestionable Salthill Road / Upper Galway, which is virtually outside the front door of Caesar’s Palace. Slightly further afield, but with a nice view of the bay, is the Tourist Office / Seapoint Promenade stop. Meanwhile, the main train station in the city is about thirty-minutes walk away.
