About Pauline Dowling


Pauline resides in Co. Galway from where she runs her successful interior design business. She attributes a lot of her inspiration to her native Co. Kilkenny. She was reared adjacent to the sumptuous surroundings of Mount Juliet Estate, rated as Irelands finest sporting Estate. From a young age she assisted her father Joe(who was the Estate painter and decorator) on his many projects. It varied from restoration of the Main House to the redecoration of the many quaint cottages which were dotted around the Estate. She inherited her aesthetic sense from her father which stood to her in her future career choice.

National Design Projects

Though based in Galway Pauline’s interior design projects have brought her all over the country. From a holiday home in Donegal to the fit out of apartments in Dublin, the K Club in Co Kildare and private commissions in Limerick, Tipperary, Clare, Westmeath and Mayo. Pauline has also naturally built up a vast client base throughout Galway City and County.

International Design Project

In 2006 Pauline was commissioned to work on a commercial project in Berlin. Over the next two years Pauline oversaw the complete restoration and was involved in the design process of high end apartments catering for the corporate market. This project not only enhanced an already impressive portfolio but proved invaluable experience regarding future commissions. Many of the exclusive apartments were subsequently let to Hollywood actors who had specific design requirements. Some famous residents were Quentin Tarrintino, John Cusack, Clive Owen and Christina Ricci.

Pauline’s vast interior design portfolio includes extensive period restorations and the creation of stylish classical interiors. Her contemporary spaces exude modernity with commercial projects also among her completed commissions.

Pauline brings individuality and freshness to an interior and takes pleasure in beauty and good taste and sharing it with others. She believes in listening to and working with her clients resulting in subtle but sophisticated interiors specific to clients needs. Her interior spaces are traditional without being old fashioned – modern but not clinical.

Pauline is enormously well informed about her profession and constantly keeps up to date by travelling researching and observing changing trends. Her reputation speaks for itself with previous clients returning time and time again for subsequent projects.
