Riverdance creator Bill Whelan's home hits the market for €3.8m

THE home of Riverdance creator Bill Whelan has gone on the market with an asking price of €3.795m.

The Victorian residence, in the south Dublin suburb of Rathgar, has six bedrooms.

The enormous charm and character-filled home enjoys an enviable position on Orwell Park standing on three acres of almost totally private gardens.

Whelan's family have lived in the house for the last 17 years, and in that time the entire home has been restored and renovated.

Incredible attention to detail is evident throughout. The retention of original period features combines with contemporary features to create a family home where the elegance of the original blends seamlessly with modern comfort.

An atmospheric reception hall sets the tone. Reception rooms of incredible charm and generous proportions with exquisite period detail are balanced by equally well-proportioned bedrooms.

The gardens which wrap around the house enjoy great seclusion and sunlight from dawn to dusk and have been lovingly cared for by their owners.

The location is superbly convenient close to all the amenities of the Dublin 6 area, schools, shops and sports clubs.


The city centre and airport are an easy commute with local Luas stops close by at Cowper and Milltown.
