Moya Doherty (59) and John McColgan (70) are believed to have made in excess of €89m from the global domination of Riverdance and are keen to sell their family home in Howth now that their children have flown the nest.

The couple purchased a bungalow on a one-acre site in 1997, for a price of £900,000 but soon added a further 2.35 acres, where they built their dream home Danes Hollow.

The five-bedroom abode measures 9000sqft and offers refreshing ocean views, which is the focus point of the property’s length and breadth.

For green-thumbs with €9.5m in their pocket, the property boasts an impressive garden, with sandstone steps linking the outside with the in, and an orangery to make the most of the sun, when it decides to make an appearance.

The property also includes a three bedroom home, on the cliff-side, which the couple will retain during the sale.
