“Lady Bird” Actor Saoirse Ronan Lists Her Elegant Irish Estate for $1.65M

By Kathryn M.
Located in a seaside town 45 minutes south of Dublin, the five-bedroom residence features cozy rooms that spill out onto a lushly landscaped lawn.

Three-time Oscar nominated and Golden Globe winner Saoirse Ronan is moving on from her homey property in Greystones, Ireland. Ronan purchased the five-bedroom house, named 'Pine Lodge,' in 2017, and spent the last two years redesigning and modernizing the interior. The finished product includes baby-blue kitchen cabinets, a timber-framed staircase, and a veranda stretching along the front.

Located in Greystones, a coastal community 20 miles from Dublin, the 5,000-square-foot home is set within a private lot. Ronan purchased the property two years ago, after which time she upgraded and modernized the interior.

Offering approximately 5,000-square-feet of interior space, the home balances spacious formal rooms with cozy reading nooks and outdoor areas. The exterior is finished with wooden sash windows with granite sills, along with a red-tiled roof with tall chimney stacks. Details of the aesthetic also recall inspiration from the neighboring Burnaby area. 

A tiled veranda welcomes guests at the main entrance. The cozy space offers a place to relax and enjoy the sound of birds or the nearby ocean.

From behind wrought iron gates, a pebbled driveway extends through the verdant lot before arriving at the main entrance, which welcomes guests onto a charming veranda. The comfortable outdoor area provides a private area to relax, tucked behind high hedges that surround the entire property. Scroll ahead to see more of the interior of this home, which is currently listed for approximately $1,650,000.

To the right of the main entrance is a formal dining room, which features built-in bookcases and broad panel wood flooring. The floors, which run throughout the rest of the home, were salvaged and refinished on site.

Along the back of the home, an elegantly designed formal living room features large windows along both sides and a marble fireplace. 

A look back at the dining room and its large windows overlooking the veranda. The large space seamlessly flows with the living room, but also offers pocket doors to divide the space as needed.

Along the left-hand side of the main entrance is a spacious kitchen and family room in the back. A massive, marble-topped island wraps around to form bar seating along one end.

The baby-blue cabinets contrast with a white subway-tiled backsplash and mosaic-tiled flooring. A large bay window overlooks the front driveway and lawn, while allowing tons of natural light into the space.

Large French doors open up to the backyard from a reading nook on the first floor. The bright, cozy corner flows onto a granite patio for easy al fresco dining. 

Upstairs, the reading area continues to another space along the landing. The timber-framed staircase leads up to a multi-use area that could be converted into a home cinema, gym, or additional bedrooms.

Four of the home's bedrooms are set up as en suites. Here, one of the spacious bedrooms looks out onto the front lawn from the large bay window.

The bedroom closest to the master bedroom is currently used as a large, walk-in closet. Here, the bathroom connected to that space features a clawfoot tub and walk-in shower.

Out back, a grassy lawn surrounds the granite flag patio. The area also offers a series of raised beds for gardening, as well as a variety of fruit trees, raspberry canes, rhubarb, and herbs.
