The 55-year-old Irvine finally found a buyer for the manor house in South Dublin.
The native County Down-American had been looking for a buyer for the property for several years, according to the Belfast Telegraph.
And in mid-April, he finally unloaded the stunning mansion overlooking the Irish capital.
The new owner can enjoy a games room with snooker and pool tables, as well as a large wooden deck area for grilling.
Movie star Damon stayed at the house during the lockdown last year, describing his time in Ireland as “like a fairy tale”.
The A-Lister was full of praise for Dublin and said, “It’s amazing, one of the most beautiful places we’ve been to.”
Irvine made a name for himself as a Formula 1 driver – between 1993 and 2002.
He lost the 1999 world title by just two points to Mika Hakkinen, despite helping Ferrari win the constructors’ championship that season.

The Irishman retired from Formula 1 in 2002, but had built up a huge real estate portfolio in competition.
Irvine recently sold a number of properties in the exclusive Venetian Islands area of Miami, Florida.
Elsewhere in F1, Lewis Hamilton has been warned that Max Verstappen is the real deal this season – and that the F1 title is at the mercy of the racing gods.
Former F1 star David Coulthard believes the Red Bull man now has the pace and maturity to give the reigning champion a title shot.
Verstappen and Hamilton did it in the first two races of the season. The Dutchman takes revenge in Imola after the Brit won the season opener in Bahrain.
With one win, Hamilton has a narrow one-point lead in the championship after setting the fastest lap recently.
And Coulthard expects another close fight at the Portuguese Grand Prix this weekend.
