Irvine, 55, finally found a buyer for the south Dublin mansion.
The County Down native had been looking for a buyer for the property for a number of years, according to the Belfast Telegraph.
And he finally offloaded the stunning mansion which overlooks the Irish capital in mid-April.
The new owner will be able to enjoy a games room with snooker and pool tables as well as a large timber decking area for barbeques.
Movie star Damon stayed at the house during lockdown last year and described his time in Ireland as ‘like a fairytale’.
The A-lister was full of praise for Dublin, saying: “It’s incredible, one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been.”
Irvine made his name as a Formula 1 driver – competing between 1993 and 2002.
He famously lost out on the world title by just two points to Mika Hakkinen in 1999 but he did help Ferrari win the Constructor’s Championship that season.

The modern kitchen has space to cook and host guests
The swanky hot tub is done out in plush marble
The pad offers stunning views of Dublin

The Irishman retired from F1 in 2002 but had built up a huge property portfolio while he was competing.
Irvine recently sold a number of properties in the exclusive Venetian Islands area of Miami, Florida.
Former F1 star David Coulthard believes the Red Bull man now has the pace and maturity to take a title fight to the reigning champion.
With one victory each, Hamilton holds a slender one-point lead in the championships after setting the fastest lap last out.
And Coulthard expects another close battle this weekend at the Portugal Grand Prix.
