A look inside Matt Damon's Dalkey home
Matt Damon is currently isolating in the seaside village of Dalkey in South Dublin with his family.
They've been laying low here ever since filming on his latest movie was put on hold due to the pandemic.
According to the Independent, the actor and his family are renting a Dalkey airbnb property for €7,000 a week.
The home is located on Sorrento Road among the biggest stars like Bono, Van Morrison and The Edge.
The property features a sauna, jacuzzi and a large games and pool area with a bar feature.
It also has a generous sized living room, dining room and study.
Damon told SPIN 1038's Graham and Nathan that Dalkey, "is one of the most beautiful places we've ever been."
"Even in the lockdown, they’re like you’ve gotta stay within two kilometres of your house," Matt went on.
"I mean two kilometres of here there’s tress and forests and woods and oceans, I can’t think of any place else you’d rather want to be in a two kilometre radius of."
"It feels like a fairy tale here," Matt told Graham and Nathan.
"I can see why all these people, you know when we came in they (Dalkey natives) were like well Bono lives over there and Enya lives over there..."
Graham asked Matt what kind of places he's been visiting in Dalkey.
"The first couple of days we were here we went into a book store," the actor replied, "Then everything kinda shut down."
Matt then went on to tell a story about a chat he had with a local barista.
"There's a lovely coffee place that stayed open and actually I was talking to the barista who works there the other they," Matt began.
"You stand two metres apart so only one person goes in at a time, into the shop and orders a coffee, and she said, which I thought was really interesting because I worked at a counter, one of my first jobs, she said normally this place is really buzzing and I've actually gotten to know all of my customers because each come in for three to five minutes and we chat."
"Normally I see them all the time, they're all faces I know, but now I actually know all these people. I know all their families and what's going on with them."
"I thought that was a cool story," Matt finished.
