The Wicklow-based world famous Ardmore Studios has been put on the market for sale.

Ardmore Studios, which opened in 1958, states that it is the only media hub capable of providing production, post-production and support services for full-length feature films and TV productions in Ireland.

The studio has played host to a number of high-profile productions in the past, including Braveheart, My left Foot, and, more recently, Moone Boy. 

The majority shareholders in the company - U2's former accountant Ossie Kilkenny, and the band's former manager Paul McGuinness - have owned the studios for nearly 30 years.

The asking price has not been disclosed to the public, however, it would be expected to be around the €10 million mark.

The site in Bray spreads over 18 acres and has seen around €2 million investment in recent years to enhance its facilities.
