Meet the Artists: Irish Design at the Heart of Wilde Aparthotels

Last updated Aug 13, 2023


“It is through art, and through art only, that we can realise our perfection.” - Oscar Wilde

At Wilde Aparthotels we strive to create a space that Oscar Wilde himself would be proud of. With natural timber flooring, bespoke joinery, crafts, artwork and soft furnishings, our incredible design team work tirelessly to ensure no detail is left unconsidered. As a result we’ve teamed up with some of Ireland’s most talented creators, working together to delight our guests with stunning Irish-made artwork and products. See for yourself at our brand new Wilde Aparthotes, Manchester, St. Peter’s Square.




Martina Scott

Taking inspiration from the nature around her home in Co. Louth beside the Cooley Mountains, Martina Scott prints her drawings onto Irish linen using a silk screen. These stunning prints can be viewed at the reception areas of our newest properties, adding an element of calm and relaxation to your stay.

Fermoyle Pottery

Our beautiful ceramics have been lovingly made by West of Ireland based ceramics studio Fermolye Pottery. Founded by husband and wife super duo Stephen O’Connell & Alexis Bowman, each piece is unique and experimental. Traditionally hand thrown, these ceramics have a contemporary feel and compliment our Wilde brand perfectly.
