Based 4 miles away from Naas town centre in Co Kildare, Longstone Rath may be slightly outside your budget, going on sale for a cool €2.5m. 

But that is no reason why you can't enjoy a sneaky peek into the home where Niall lived with his model wife Gillian and their two children, Aisling and Michael.

Built in 2004, the magnificent luxury home extends to around 5,500sq ft overlooking its own 33 acres of 'prime pasture'.

The private, landscaped gardens are secured with electric gates and surrounded by mature hedging - but perhaps the real attraction are the high standard equestrian facilities.

Animal lovers can drool over the four large paddocks and 'excellent bridleway' that runs around the boundary of the grazing fields. 

There is also ample opportunity to kick a ball around too with a superb all-weather Astro Turf tennis/football court on the grounds.

The nearby N7 Naas Dual Carriageway connects Naas with Dublin (in 40mins) and the M50 Motorway so being isolated is not going to be an issue. 

The house is currently up for sale through Sherry FitzGerald by private treaty, for €2.5m.

Sporting celebrities need only apply. That last bit was a joke.
