Take a look inside the former home of an Irish Hollywood legend

Irish director Jim Sheridan put his €3.5m Dublin mansion up for sale in 2019, after his children grew up and flew the nest.

The My Left Foot filmmaker and his wife Fran lived in the magnificent Victorian home for 27 years.

However, after their three daughters moved across the Atlantic to the US, the house has become too big for the couple.

Sheridan told the Irish Independent: “We have bought an apartment around the corner on the canal so we will still be in the same area. I love the area.

“But the kids are gone, they’re in New York and LA so it was just too big for us.

The property is a four bedroom home, which Sheridan says is perfect for a young family – but that there is plenty of potential for development.

He said: “It’s actually two houses that are for sale. There’s the main house and then a little granny flat that comes with it that has planning permission to be re-developed,

The Victorian property has been carefully restored and maintained and still has many of its original features, such as the original floors, sash windows and ornate fireplaces.
