American College Dublin came into possession of this house in 1994 and was presented with an extremely generous donation in 1998 by Tina & William E. Flaherty, New York City, which has provided the College with the much needed funds to undertake a series of restoration works, under the guidance of Mrs. Ellen Ross Sarafian, Curator of the Oscar Wilde House.
The Clementina & William E. Flaherty Cultural Centre enables the College to host many interesting exhibitions and it has become an integral part of artistic and cultural life in Dublin and has quickly become a highly desirable exhibition venue amongst the artistic community both in Ireland and overseas.
The American College Dublin is anxious to support up and coming Irish and international artists. Artists and sculptors who may be interested in holding an exhibition of their work are invited to contact Ms. Mary Monahan, Executive Assistant to the President at the American College Dublin.
The securing of Tina & William Flaherty's donation has made it possible for the College to create a highly respected and heavily utilised cultural facility that will be used by the exhibition and educational communities for years to come. The Oscar Wilde House restoration project involved the revival of traditional crafts to repair plasterwork and joinery and restore the original stone and wooden floors found throughout the house. Group Tours of the Oscar Wilde House of up to 25 people can be accommodated by special arrangement.
