Avoid at all cost. This casino must have the lowest payout ratio in Ireland. The staff are not one bit helpful or friendly, the place is full drunks and people hanging around even during the day and for those of you who like to enjoy a game without being hassled by some guy looking for money or cigarettes, forget about it . More likely a group of leeches will gather around you trying to intimidate you and follow you around even if you do move. Dont bother asking the staff to move them as most of them are freinds of the staff and said staff can even be frequently seen sharing games with said gangsters or pointing them in the direction of a game where some poor mug just lost his rent money . There is certainly a very sinister element to doctor quirkeys and on speaking to a few regulars who actual play games it seems to have been on a huge slope for quite some time both value for your buck and managemnt wise. To sum it up basically, the man who owns this place is one of the richest men in Ireland, and there is a reason for that. DO NOT GO TO DOCTOR QUIRKEYS UNLESS YOU WANT TO LEAVE WITHOUT YOUR WALLET AND YOUR FAITH IN HUMANITY. ALSO CHANCES ARE IF YOU DO SPEND A FEW BUCKS HERE YOU ARE CONTRIBUTING TO GANG RELATED CRIME IN IRELAND.BE WARNED.

“Have some fun at Dr. Quirkey's!”
Reviewed 5 September 2008

We were lucky enough to be staying at Cassidy's Hotel, just blocks from Dr. Quirkey's, and went here every day we were in Dublin. There are tons of arcade games, as well as a casino-like side to the place. It's huge! And it was a blast playing DDR in Ireland. If you have kids- or if you're a kid at heart- check this place out.
