Built c1756 for the Rev. Cutts Harman, Dean of Waterford. Now the St. Stephen's Green Club. The decorative plasterwork is attributed to Paolo Lafranchini, given its similarity to comparable work executed by him at Castletown, Co. Kildare in 1759.
The iconography of the figurative centrepiece of this ceiling has been identified as Fortitude with a helmet, shield, sword and cannon (derived from an engraving of Simon Vouet's painted decorations in the Salon de Mars at Versailles).
