Irish Presidential candidate Peter Casey has been making big moves in his presidential race in recent weeks but they’re not the only moves he has been making – the former ‘Dragons’ Den’ star has also moved home. 

Mr Casey recently downsized from a luxurious $2m (€1.73m) mansion to a more modest €250,000 property in Donegal.


The Derry-born candidate, who lived in Atlanta with his wife and four children for 20-years before selling in 2016, founded US-based recruitment firm Claddagh Resources.

Photographs on US real estate websites show its luxurious interiors and manicured gardens, complete with an Irish tricolour on the lawn.

The house has six large en-suite bedrooms as well as a cinema-style entertainment room and wine cellar.

Outside is a swimming pool, a putting green for golf practice, and a barbecue area.

He bought his two-storey Donegal home in 2014 for €250,000 and spent another €100,000 renovating it.


Online listings show that at one point the asking price for the house was $2.29m but the sum achieved is put at $2.05m.
