The Belfast Telegraph reports that the native Co. Down had been looking for a buyer for the property for several years and finally dumped the impressive mansion in mid-April for a tidy sum of over 3 million euros.
The new owner can enjoy a games room with snooker and pool tables, as well as a large wooden deck area for grilling.
That being said, Hollywood A-lister Matt Damon and his family stayed there during a Covid-19 lockdown last year. The actor described his time in Ireland as “like a fairy tale”.
The superstar was full of praise for Dublin and said, “It’s amazing, one of the most beautiful places we’ve been to.”

Damon also admitted that he “laughed so hard” when he realized the Dalkey residents were protecting him from questions from the international press.
He said at the time, “I know, I heard this story, laughed so much, and then I realized how great this place was and how protective everyone is here.
