Pictures: Rory McIlroy's house for sale

Rory McIlroy has lived in the elegant house just outside Belfast since 2009
Rory McIlroy has lived in the elegant house just outside Belfast since 2009
Professional golf is no longer about cigar-chomping on the fairway or endless pints at the 19th. McIlroy's house features a fully furnished gym
Double-height ceilings give the house great views out over its extensive grounds
The house's buyer is likely to see more of the kitchen than McIlroy did: professional golfers are away for up to 50 weeks a year playing in tournaments
Nonetheless the kitchen is well-appointed, with appliances set around a stylish contemporary breakfast bar
Not such a hazard: a picturesque pond sits outside the Moneyreagh property
Of course, no golfer's haven would be complete without a putting green
As well as letting the owner hone their putting skills, the facilities also include bunkers to practise tricky approach shots out of
Markers down the driving range are helpful for those wishing to perfect their iron and wood play, just yards from the front door

The world's number one golfer, who played a crucial part in Europe's Ryder Cup win at the weekend, has put his home in Moneyreagh, County Down, on the market for €2.5m
