Widely acknowledged as the best neo-classical Georgian buildingin Europe.
This was designed by Sir William and later built in the second part of the 18th century as a ‘folly'. a garden pavilion for James Caulfield, the 1st Earl of Charlemont.
The Casino meaning 'small house', surprisingly contains 16 rooms spread over 3 levels, some of which are finely decorated with ornate plasterwork and richly patterned marquetry floors.
The Casino is a box of tricks, full of illusions and architectural devices. It is a remarkable building - both in terms of structure and history.
