      The Casino

      This building has been vacant for a number of years and does not appear to be maintained. Most of the external fabric remains, but there are obvious signs of deterioration, particularly water penetration, vandalism and vegetation growth. There is no immediate danger of collapse but the condition is such that unless urgent remedial works are carried out the building will sharply deteriorate. The Casino in Malahide is a significant 18th century house with 19th century alterations that includes a thatch roof. There is a permission for a restaurant development on the grounds, however, it has remained vacant for over a decade and a subject of continuing security concern with the permitted development not proceeding.
