He spoke to Bloomberg and said: “There’s no financial need. I don’t have to sell this place. I just think it’s too big for two people.”

The singer revealed that over the years he has “probably put more money into it than I’m asking back”.

However, he is not downhearted and proud of the home he and his family have helped build.

He said: “Maybe as a hard headed businessman, I should have been a bit more careful. But I wasn’t, and we’ve created something spectacular.”

The property is named Bushey Park, and is a short trip from Enniskerry village in Co Wicklow.

It has six reception rooms and eight bedrooms, a wine cellar and swimming pool.

The sales is being handled by David Ashmore of Sotheby’s International Realty, and there is expected to be much interest from fellow celebrities and overseas buyers.

The stunning property would provide a stunning home for the next occupants, as it has for de Burgh and his wife and children.
