The ancestral holiday home of brewing family heiress and designer Daphne Guinness, below, has appeared on the market in Ireland.

Garech Browne, 77, founder of Claddagh Records, currently lives in the pretty 18th-century lodge named Luggala. His great, great, great-grandfather Arthur Guinness founded the brewing empire.

Stars who’ve stayed at the seven-bedroom house include the Beatles, Mick Jagger, Bono, Anjelica Huston and Michael Jackson.

Luggala sits in 5,000 acres in a picturesque valley 30 miles from Dublin. Originally built by the La Touche banking family, the property was modelled on Strawberry Hill in Twickenham.

A £5 million overhaul in 1996 restored it to its original Gothic glory, and this grand estate is now on the market for £24 million.
