PICS: Michael Flatley's Cork mansion is up for sale at €20m and it is stunning

Brings a whole new meaning to the term, 'a pretty penny.'

You can start searching the side of the couch and under the seat of your car but you would need some amount of loose change to afford this beauty of a place.


Did we mention it's Michael Flatley's Castlehyde?

There are 37 photos in total in the advert but here are a few previews...


The beautiful 150.005-acre site lies on the banks of the Blackwater which is widely known in Ireland for its salmon fishing.


Fermoy in Co. Cork is where this mansion is situated and it's within easy reach of both the People's Republic of Cork and the Capital of the Country.

It originally belonged to Douglas Hyde's family. Hyde was the first President of Ireland and was the founder of the Gaelic League.

The current owner of the house is Lord of the Dance, Michael Flatley. Flatley bought the estate in 1999 at a time where it was damaged beyond repair.

Riverdance star, Flatley, didn't let that stop him and he undertook "an ambitious and extensive restoration project" which was completed over the course of 4 years.


Daft states that "this remarkable project resulted in an outstanding transformation of the estate to what is considered to be one of the finest in Ireland today."

It's over 200 years old and you can multiply that by one hundred thousand if you want to know the price of this beast of a building.

You will have to part with at least €20 million if you want to stand any chance of bidding with the best of them.

To be fair though, considering it's got a swimming pool, tennis court and waterside to name a few of its outside features alone, it's worth every cent.
