Kilkee House was purchased by the Irish actor in 1971 but is a world away from the Co. Clare town after which it was named, set on the aptly christened Paradise Island.

The stunning estate is only accessible by boat and offers dazzling ocean-views. It is set on more than two acres of land on Paradise Island with access to both the beach and bay at either end.

The 10,000 sq m luxury estate will be auctioned on January 14, with an asking price of $10m (€9.2m).

While Kilkee House was originally built more than 70 years ago by American businessman Huntington Hartford II, Harris renamed it after the town in which he spent many childhood holidays.

The Limerick actor’s estate is just a short boat journey from the capital of the Bahamas, Nassau and boasts four bedrooms, a dining room that seats 18 people, a gourmet kitchen and a personal library. The idyllic property also offers a pool and unlimited access to the paradisal beach on the island.

Harris was most famous for his roles in Camelot in 1967, and John B Keane’s The Field in 1990. The Limerick actor also played Professor Dumbledore in the first three Harry Potter films before his death in 2002.
