Dalkey mansion previously rented by Matt Damon is up for rent

The Hollywood A-Lister spent plenty of time in the coastal Dublin suburb during the lockdown of 2020.

Fancy living like the stars? If so, now’s your chance as the Dalkey mansion rented by Matt Damon is on the market.

Everyone remembers the iconic picture of Matt Damon on the Dalkey seafront with a SuperValu bag in hand.

The epitome of Irish domesticity, the image (and the knowledge that Mr Damon was in Ireland) was one of the highlights of what was otherwise a very tough time for many people in Ireland.

Now, the Dalkey mansion that was rented by Matt Damon during his time in Ireland is up for rent – and it’s not cheap.

We all know that the price of rent in Ireland, and especially Dublin, is extortionate.

With the ever-increasing cost of living, choosing to live in Ireland’s capital is becoming more and more unobtainable.

However, if you’ve got the money to spend, you can check into the luxurious Dalkey mansion that was previously rented by Matt Damon.

Coming in at an eyewatering €8,400 a week and only available for ‘short term rental’, according to Airbnb, the property is certainly out of reach for most.

The luxurious mansion was previously owned by ex-Formula 1 racing driver Eddie Irvine. However, he put the property on the market last year, and it was sold for €3.5 million.

Titled ‘Ischia’, the home is located on Dalkey’s affluent Sorrento Road, just a short walk away from the seafront.

The 5,000 sq ft (465 sq m) home includes five large double bedrooms, four of which include ensuite bathrooms. There is a fully integrated kitchen and a luxurious dining area.

Guests can also enjoy the home’s games room, which opens out onto a private outdoor pool area. The games room includes a pool table and bar area. As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a sauna, jacuzzi, and plunge pool.

The Dublin suburb has proven a popular destination among Ireland’s rich and famous. Located in South Dublin, the town offers a relaxed way of life with easy access to the city.

The Airbnb listing reads, “Live amongst the stars with Bono, Van Morrison, and The Edge in the celebrity enclave of Dalkey.

“‘Ischia’, a unique, stunningly beautiful home that is located on the Sorrento Road within a stone’s throw of the sea and the beautiful Killiney Bay.”
