The coastal home of Ischia, located on the Sorrento Road in Dalkey was taken off the market on 15 April, after spending months as a rental with a price tag of €1000 a night.

Damon temporarily relocated to the tiny seaside village alongside his wife and daughters while filming the thriller movie The Last Duel in 2020.

However, as global travel restrictions were put in place due to the pandemic, the actor was forced to stay in Ireland for longer than expected.

Ischia was built and owned by Eddie Irvine, the ex-Ferrari Formula 1 driver, and spreads out across an unbelievable 5,000-square-foot radius.

The five-bedroom home with four ensuites also contains a study area, sauna, jacuzzi, games room, and a plunge pool - and is located in an enclave of Dalkey that has also been home to stars such as The Edge, Van Morrison, and Bono over the years.

At ground level, the accommodation comprises steps up to the entrance door which opens out onto a large dining area, cloakroom, and fully integrated light-filled kitchen.

Whoever purchased the property will also get to enjoy a timber decking area with a barbecue surrounding the flood-lit heated swimming pool, panoramic sea views, and a self-contained office area.

Plus the house is just a short stroll from Killiney beach, and tons of restaurants, cafes, and bars, and is secured through electric gates off a shared private driveway for added privacy and security.

The property was originally put on the market back in 2003 with a price tag of €6 million, with the price being lowered to €4 million the next year after a near sale to publican Dave Cullen.

Sure it's nice, but it would be a nightmare to clean it.
