Do you fancy living a life of luxury in a house that helped inspire one of the most talented people ever to live in Dublin? Then boy have we got the house for you today.

Torca Cottage was the former home of George Bernard Shaw, who lived there between 1866 and 1874. An Irish playwright, critic and controversialist, Shaw's influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death in 1950.

You'll need a cool €2.5 million to buy the house today but, as you can see from the pictures and features below, this really is something truly special and unique. 

The price doesn't include the assurance that you'll become as talented as Bernard Shaw, but with views and a setting like this you'll certainly have no shortage of inspiration.

Features include....

  • Attractive period residence with contemporary interior.
  • Unparalleled views over Dublin Bay.
  • Landscaped gardens.
  • Electronic security gate.
  • Off-street parking to the rear.
  • Two large sun decks.
  • Lower patio area.
  • Service.
  • GFCH.
  • TV and phone points.
  • Broadband.
