Lorraine Keane House

Irish journalist and broadcaster Lorraine Keane and her musician husband Peter Devlin are putting their swanky Co Dublin home on the market for €2.65 million.

The couple have lived at the period house in Monkstown for 16 years and during that time they have undertaken some serious renovation work.

When they bought the property, it was divided into eight flats and they spent the following 18 months converting it into a magnificent house. It spans 450sq m, over four floors.

It now has six bedrooms and four bathrooms, and it has had its original features restored.

Four of the larger bedrooms are in the upstairs of the property. There are two more bedrooms, which are self-contained apartments in the basement, at garden level.

They have been soundproofed so they could be used as a recording studio for Peter and his band, the Devlins.
The kitchen and breakfast room are on the ground floor of the property, with a dining room and drawing room upstairs.

There is even a room reserved especially for shoes.

Keane told the Irish Times: “I never bought to renovate and flip, it just happened over the years.

“It was my fourth house, as interiors are one of my passions, and though I never bought to renovate and flip, it just happened over the years. This is the place I have called home the longest – even from childhood.”

As well as having a wonderful interior, the house boasts sea views from Dun Laoghaire to Howth, which can be seen on the other side of the square.

The green on the square is used by the community.

Keane said: “It’s a superb amenity and the residents’ committee organises everything from barbecues, movie nights to sports days, it’s also a lovely way for the children on the square to get to know their neighbours.”
