Vincent Gerard Dowling (7 September 1929 – 9 May 2013) was an Irish actor and director.

He was married to the late Irish actress, Brenda Doyle (who died in a car crash in 1981). He is the father of actress Bairbre Dowling, and the former father-in-law of Irish actor, Colm Meaney.
In May 2013, the politician and TD, Richard Boyd Barrett, revealed that Dowling was his biological father, as a result of a relationship with actress Sinéad Cusack in 1967.

Dowling first came to prominence in Ireland in the 1950s for his role as Christy Kennedy in the long-running radio soap opera, The Kennedys of Castleross and as a member of the Abbey Theatre company. He served as Artistic and Producing Director of The Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival (now the Great Lakes Theater Festival) in Cleveland, Ohio from 1976 to 1984. During his tenure at GLSF, he directed, produced and acted in many classical works, by Shakespeare and others. He is credited with discovering award-winning actor Tom Hanks.

Dowling founded the Miniature Theatre of Chester (now the Chester Theatre Company), in Chester, Massachusetts, in 1990.

Dowling received an Emmy for producing and directing the PBS film The Playboy of the Western World, based on John Millington Synge's 1907 play of the same name.

Dowling was the J. Garber Drushal Distinguished Visiting Professor at The College of Wooster, in Wooster, Ohio, during the 1985-86 academic year.

Dowling's first autobiographical book is Astride the Moon: A Theatrical Life, ISBN 0-86327-828-0 (Wolfhound Press, 2000).

He resided in Massachusetts with his second wife, Olwen O'Herlihy, until his death.

Dowling's papers, from 1976 onward, are housed at the Kent State University and John Carroll University libraries.

Emotionally devastated by the death of his uncle, Boston carpenter Jack O'Toole (McIntyre) writes a play inspired by the man's wake. When nobody will produce the play, Jack quits his job to produce it himself, imagining that this play will give a new start to the strained relationship Jack has with his father. But the only stage Jack can afford is in the back room of a neighborhood pub. In this humble environment, Jack pulls together a theater company of sorts and brings his story to the stage, and in the process he brings together his family and friends and helps them move beyond their loss.

À Dublin, en 1911, dans l'Irlande occupée par les forces britanniques, John Cassidy travaille pour faire vivre sa mère et sa sœur. Animé par un désir de justice et de liberté pour son pays, il a aussi à cœur d'étudier, de lire, d'écrire, et de mettre sa plume au service de l'indépendance irlandaise. Il participe à des grèves et à des mouvements de protestation, écrit des tracts politiques. Pendant une manifestation, il rencontre Daisy Battles, une jolie danseuse qui devient sa maitresse. Mais, très vite, il l'abandonne pour Nora, vendeuse dans une librairie, qui comprend ses aspirations et l'encourage à écrire. L'échec de l'insurrection irlandaise de 1916, violemment réprimée par les Britanniques, ne le décourage pas. Une pièce de théâtre qu'il a écrite, La Charrue et les Étoiles, finit par être acceptée à l'Abbey Theatre de Dublin. La carrière d'un grand écrivain commence.
