Well now you have the chance to truly live life in the fast lane as Formula One driver turned property developer, Eddie Irvine, lists his sprawling Dalkey home on short-term property rental site Airbnb.

Situated in one of the most sought-after locations in Ireland, The Sorrento Road property comes with all the trappings you'd expect from a celebrity home.

The north Down man's home features an outdoor swimming pool that leads down to an indoor lagoon, it also houses a plunge pool, a sauna, a four-person Jacuzzi and comes with breathtaking views over Killiney Bay - and famous neighbours, including Bono and The Edge.

The home has been on the market since the boom in 2004 but never agreed a buyer for its asking price of €6.5 million. It was put back on the market again in 2014 for €4 million but never sold.

Irvine is one of the many celebrities who have listed their homes on Airbnb. British actress Emily Blunt, singer Mariah Carey and Brazilian football ace Ronaldinho have all put their homes up for rent on the popular site.
