Dancer Michael Flatley will sell his 18th century Irish mansion

By Ralph Riegel

Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley is to build a smaller Irish home near the coast as he prepares to sell his 18th century mansion, Castlehyde House.

The dancer is to sell the north Cork property as he doesn't spend enough time there due to his expanding business empire in London.

It is expected to be one of the landmark Irish property deals of the year.

"The plan is to build a smaller house, probably somewhere near the coast. It could be in Kerry or maybe in the south-east," he said.

"But I will not be leaving Ireland - that is for sure."

The Chicago-born dancer bought Castlehyde for €3m in 2001 and lavished over €27m on its refurbishment.
