We're a nosey bunch and when you know that a famous person's house or former house is up for sale, you just can't help but have a gawk. 

The beautiful house that stands in Kara Lodge, Celbridge, Co. Kildare is up for sale and was once the home of a famous power-couple in Ireland.

Valued at €820,000, this used to belong to golden Irish couple, Ronan and Yvonne Keating.

And we're not sure if it's supposed to be a house or a hotel.

  • Spacious 7 bedroom country property
  • Magnificent gardens in a peaceful location
  • Swimming pool complex

And that's only the beginning of it. It's an ideal location as it's near both Dublin City and the M50, meaning a trip to the capital or anywhere else in Ireland was never too long of a wait. 

"Kara Lodge is a unique house that offers country living on a grand scale, with luxurious accommodation, coupled with the tranquil surrounds and the peaceful ambience of the Co Kildare countryside. 

"The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with well stocked herbaceous borders surrounded by mature trees and the stunning backdrop of the Dublin Mountains. 

"The property is approached through a high walled entrance with electronic gates leading to a short tree lined driveway and the charming front façade of the Kara Lodge. "

"The accommodation comprises approximately 674 sq. mt. / 7,259 sq. ft. and is conveniently laid out into the living section, the bedroom section with the entertainment room and swimming pool complex to the rear. The first floor contains further bedrooms and is easily accessed from all parts of the ground floor via three different staircases."

"This well-built house has the luxury of space and it is immediately evident on entering with wide corridors leading into generous reception rooms and bedrooms. At ground floor level the accommodation benefits from large windows all overlooking different aspects of the garden and to the rear there are stretching views of the Wicklow Mountains beyond. 

"The swimming pool complex is filled with light through the many large windows and the double doors leading to the garden. There is also a sauna, steam room shower and toilet facilities."

We can't imagine this being up for sale for very long.
