Fitzwilliam Casino and Card Club - Ireland

Known locally as ‘The Fitz’, the Fitzwilliam Casino and Card Club is a Dublin institution. Known mainly for its poker, the venue also has a clutch of classic casino games for players to enjoy.

The club has more than 60,000 members and there are poker tournaments every day of the week. Gambling is a serious business here and there is no alcohol for sale or permitted within the premises.

As well as Blackjack, Roulette, and Punto Banco, the Fitz also gives players the chance to try their hand at BritBrag – also known as three card poker: a quick and fun game to learn with a relatively low house edge. Try it.

Although a dry venue, soft drinks, tea, and coffee are on offer. Food is available until the early hours of the morning. If your game does need a little lubrication, help is on hand: the venue is surrounded by dozens of pubs.

For old school vibes, in a professional and classy card room, the Fitz is an Irish winner. Poker is the star attraction but the table games - and atmosphere - are there to enjoy. If you’re planning a visit to the Fair City, have a punt in the Fitz.
