Take a look inside luxury Dublin mansion used by Hollywood star Matt Damon

An Irish mansion that Hollywood star Matt Damon stayed in for several months during lockdown in 2020 is available to rent – but only for short term visits.

The €3.5m property is named ‘Ischia’ and was built and once owned by ex-Formula 1 driver Eddie Irvine.

The current owner has made Ischia available to rent for the price of €8,400 per week.

As you would expect for such a price there is plenty to do in the mansion in terms of luxury and activities.

Ischia has an outdoor swimming pool, a plunge pool, sauna, jacuzzi, snooker room and bar.

So there is plenty to keep visitors entertained. Another great feature of the property is its setting.

It is in the affluent area of Dalkey in Dublin which Bourne star Damon described as: “One of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been.”

The property can boast spectacular views looking out to the Irish Sea.

It has five double bedrooms, a large dining area and a kitchen that is filled with natural light during the day.

The listing states: “Live amongst the stars with Bono, Van Morrison and The Edge in the celebrity enclave of Dalkey. ‘Ischia’, a unique, stunningly beautiful home is located on the Sorrento Road within a stone’s throw of the sea and the beautiful Killiney Bay.

“You can take a stroll down to Dalkey village, which has an array of wonderful restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars… We are delighted to bring ‘Ischia’ to the market for short term letting (minimum stay three nights).

“The beaches of White Rock and Killiney, a number of parks, wonderful restaurants, cafes and bars are all in close proximity. Dalkey is serviced by excellent transport links, including the DART, and M50 which is a short drive away.

“There are also several bus services to the City Centre, and the Aircoach which travels directly to Dublin Airport. Rent includes TV and internet broadband, gas and electricity and water and waste charges. There is a €200 end of stay cleaning fee.”
