“Lord of the Dance” Michael Flatley tapping his way out of Ireland

“Lord of the Dance” Michael Flatley — who very well may be the richest dancer in the world — is selling his magical Irish castle for €20,000,000. Thankfully, the home is slightly more understated than his act.

The Irish castle in Cork is actually a bargain at this price; Variety reports that Flatley originally bought it in 1999 for $3 million, when according to the listing it was “”regarded as almost beyond repair,” and then he spent an estimated $30 million on four years of renovations.

Judging from the beautiful photos, Flatley did not skimp out on anything in the enormous 35,000-square-foot home. It has ten bedrooms, 10 reception rooms (so Downton Abbey-like!), 12 bathrooms (two of which are apparently in the master bedroom), a tennis court, swimming pool, salmon fishing off the Blackwater River, a golf course, and — obviously– a dance studio.

The American-born dancer is decamping to London, where he bought a $30 million pad earlier this year in Belgravia, and sold his Knightsbridge home in June for about $11 million.
