Charles Haughey at Abbeville

Abbeville, the Kinsealy-based home of former Taoiseach Charles J Haughey, has been put on the market with a guide price of €7.5m with estate agents Savills.

The mansion dates from 1770 and was designed by James Gandon, architect of the Custom House and the Four Courts.

The property is described as a “magnificent Gandon mansion in a parkland setting just 10km from Dublin city centre.”

The guide price of €7.5m is around a fifth of what Manor Park Homes paid for the estate in 2003. The purchase allowed the former Taoiseach and his wife Maureen to remain in the house.

Charles Haughey died in 2006.
