Rory McIlroy’s ex-girlfriend Holly Sweeney has put her luxurious penthouse apartment up for sale to buy a house instead.
The 21-year-old engineering student and Ulster Rockettes cheerleader is selling her 14th floor dream pad in Belfast’s iconic The Boat building - bought for her by the world’s number one golfer from Holywood - complete with glass staircase, three balconies and a rooftop garden.
It is the biggest apartment in the building and is on the market for £660,000. Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Holly said the sale of her lavish home was “a stepping stone” to independence.
Holly, who won a lucrative modelling contract with a top Dublin agency said: “I’m not making my nest and settling down by the way. But I’m a girl who grew up on the ground with fields all around me and I want to get back to something like that. It’s pricey but I definitely think it’s worth the money and I hope buyers see past me and appreciate the apartment for what it is.”
