At the time of writing there aren’t any slot machines available at the 4 Aces. This place is about being more than just a casino with the word ‘club’ being the operative word. You can have all sorts of fun playing different casino games and having a laugh, so at some point in the future, slot machines may well be added. Right now, though, you’re best sticking to the table games.
From Las Vegas to Monte Carlo, people love locking horns with the dealer to see who can come out on top in this fame of luck and judgment. Blackjack is one of the most popular table games in the world so it’s little surprise that the 4 Aces have a couple of tables on offer.
Another game popular with casino regulars is roulette, perhaps because the odds are slightly more in the favour of the player than elsewhere. It’s also a great game for beginners, as it’s so easy to understand, plus it’s a fun one to play in a big group. For a member’s club that’s all about the ‘craic’, it’s not a surprise that the 4 Aces boasts roulette amongst its games.
Much like with the slots, the 4 Aces are sticking with the tried and tested games for now. Other games might be introduced in the future, but for now, have a look at the tables and see if there’s anything you fancy.
The 4 Aces is all about games that let you have fun and interact with other people. No shock, then, that the world’s most famous card game of all finds prominence in this Galway club.

The 4 Aces club can be found just next to where the River Corrib starts to turn into the canal. It is virtually in line with Galway Cathedral as the eagle flies and is about two-minutes from Burke Park. On the opposite side of the river is the Jurys Inn with Róisín Dubh on the opposite side of the road to the club itself.
If you’re hoping to take advantage of nearby public transport then you’re in luck. Domnick Street bus station is on the other side of the river but within easy reach of the club over the bridge. Henry Street station is also only a minute or so away, but it’s on the right side of the water. Lastly, Galway Train Station is about a fifteen-minute walk from the 4 Aces should the train be your preferred method of transport.
