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.
