Legendary Irish actress Maureen O’Hara has placed her beloved west Cork home on the market for 2.3M.

The 94-year-old Dublin-born star bought the Lugdine Park estate with her late husband Charles Blair in 1970, and lived there on and off until 2005 when she took up permanent residence there.

The Cork house is situated on 35 acres of land overlooking Glengarriff Bay and the Cork/Kerry mountains. The estate also boats a guest cottage, a private beach and not one, but two islands.

O’Hara - who is best known for her performance opposite John Wayne in The Quiet Man -announced she was quitting public life last year and since then has been listed as a recipient of an honorary Oscar.

The actress now lives in Boise, Idaho, near her grandson Conor Fitzsimons.
