IF you are one of the leading sports stars in the world, you will definitely have nice digs.
Conor McGregor, 34, is said to have a net worth of around $200 million.
In addition, his businesses rake in whiskey and fashion.
And with all that money, he’s been able to build an extensive real estate portfolio scattered around the world.
A native of the Emerald Isle, McGregor was always bound to follow his heart and buy a lavish Irish home.
In 2019, he poured $2.5 million into a stunning mansion formerly owned by a son of former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds.
The Paddocks near Straffan, Co. Kildare is situated behind an elite gated community in Ladycastle in the K Club, famous for hosting the 2006 Ryder Cup.
The property has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and games room.
There are horse riding facilities as well as incredible views of the River Liffey.
Upon entering the lush property you face a spiral staircase and the tiled room is illuminated with stunning crystal chandeliers.
And McGregor won’t miss a workout thanks to his own personal gym, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to keep in shape.
THE HOLIDAY HOUSE
Of course, living in Ireland doesn’t promise good weather all year round.
That’s why McGregor decided to part with $1.6 million for a luxury vacation home in Marbella in 2018.
The house is the perfect place to take his partner Dee Devlin when they want to relax in the sun.
The home is located in The Heights, a luxury development with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and on the doorstep of La Resina Golf Course. It features some nice modern touches.
For one, the villa looks spectacular from the outside with an LED-lit driveway and smart water feature.
Again, he has his own custom-built gym, an at-home spa, and a large outdoor pool that can be accessed directly from his bedroom.
A huge dining area overlooks the sea and he can also look out over the coast while relaxing in his hot tub.
McGregor is one of several sports stars who have invested in the La Resina Club estate.
Tottenham’s Harry Winks is the resort’s brand ambassador and former Stoke stopper Thomas Sorensen also owns a property there.
Former US Open golf champion Michael Campbell has also invested in the Marbella hotspot.
VIVA LAS VEGAS
Since most of his fights took place in Nevada, having a residency in Sin City made sense for McGregor.
Nicknamed the Mac Mansion, he unveiled the home in 2015 before taking on Jose Aldo, and boy is it impressive.
The 12,000-square-foot Henderson home, a 15-minute drive from the Vegas Strip, features seven mega bedrooms, a 50-foot infinity pool, a ten-person spa, and a back garden golf course.
Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, while the master bedroom has a marble jacuzzi.
The garage has room for ten of Conor’s beloved motors, but he’ll have trouble getting his boat in there.
But it’s worth noting that Conor only rented it before it went on sale in 2017 for around $2.8 million.
When he travels to Las Vegas today, he prefers to stay in a penthouse suite in one of the city’s famous hotels.
And why not when he can come home to Ireland and put his feet up in a dream home.
