Matt Damon says he would love to live in Ireland

Hollywood superstar Matt Damon has revealed that he would love to move to a dream home in Ireland.

The Jason Bourne star had an interesting idea for the type of building he would like to live in, and also talked about the parts of Ireland that he would most like to live.

Damon was speaking to the Irish Sun ahead of the release of his latest blockbuster, The Great Wall.

He gushed: “How awesome would that be? Watching the Atlantic crashing over the Irish cliffs, the rain coming down, the grey skies. I love the weather.

“That whole geographical area, from Cork to Kerry, Galway, that environment is like nowhere, it’s good for the health. All that air.

“I just have this image, this dream of sitting atop of the lighthouse, looking out to sea, and how beautiful and peaceful that must be. I don’t know if you can buy those, wouldn’t they be State-owned? If you could, I’d do it.

“Well I’d run it past my wife first, then I’d do it.”

If the star was to go ahead with his move in the future, he would not be short of great places in the West Coast of Ireland to explore including the Wild Atlantic Way, the Ring of Kerrythe Burren, the Cliffs of Moher, Blarney Castle and several more.

Take a look at some of the great attractions in Ireland that Damon could take in.
