The Westlife singer, 41, snatched up the stunning Sligo home which sits on the edge of Lough Gill in 2006 and has spent years redesigning and renovating the country abode.
Mark, who shares two-year-old daughter Layla with fiancé Cailean O’Neill, oversaw every step of the renovation – from hand-drafting plans for builders to follow, to sourcing furniture and sanitary ware.

From the living room of the singer’s former home, you can see Church Island to the north, considered by some to be the true inspiration for The Lake Isle of Innisfree.
The bathroom has a freestanding copper bathtub that offers stunning views, while the spacious kitchen is equipped with a huge dining area.
Mark’s attention to detail has even allowed areas like the stairs to become interesting centerpieces – with the walls surrounding the stairs in his former home adorned with eye-catching books and ornaments.
The exterior of the property is equally impressive, with the private grounds offering the owner the peace and serenity of the Sligo countryside.
With an outdoor fire pit and children’s play area, the acres of land can also be the perfect place to entertain friends and loved ones.
Over the years Mark has used the property as the perfect getaway hideaway between his busy touring schedules.

“I’m proud and hope this helps highlight the issues that LGBT+ families still face when they want to start their own families.”

Mark and Cailean welcomed their daughter Layla into the world on October 1, 2019, via surrogate.
“Overall all I can say is it’s lovely because all I think about is her now, I don’t have to think about myself so much,” said Mark told the Mirror shortly after becoming a father.
“I used to be maybe used to overthinking and questioning everything, so it’s good to take a break from that.
“All your attention is on another little person and a tiny little smile from them right now is like winning the lottery or something, it’s the best feeling in the world, so getting so much joy of a little thing, it just puts everything into perspective, you know.”
