McGregor's plans to extend £2.5m Ireland home with underground car park and gym rejected as 'inappropriate' by council

CONOR MCGREGOR has reportedly had an 'inappropriate' home extension plan rejected.

The UFC mega-star and his partner Dee Devlin have been refused permission for a large extension to their £2.5million house in Staffn by Kildare County Council.


Planning files at the council show the couple gave the MMA fighter’s personal assistant consent to seek planning permission for works on 'The Paddocks', their five-bedroom, six-bathroom home at Castledillon.

The luxury pad sits on landscaped gardens that come with its own equestrian facilities.

McGregor’s plans included demolishing their detached garage and building a part-single, part-one-and-a-half-storey extension to the front, side and rear of the property. 

He also wanted to move his personal tennis court and to build a partially sunken basement under it.

That basement would have a car park, gym and ancillary rooms.

The Irishman bought the property back in July 2019 from Albert Reynolds Jnr, the son of the former taoiseach.

However, they will now have to go back to the drawing board with their plans after the council ruled they were inappropriate for a rural area in the Liffey Valley.

McGregor, who owns The Black Forge Inn boozer in Dublin, is reportedly planning to purchase more pubs in his homeland and is also contemplating buying some 'overseas'.

If the rumours are true, the former two-weight world champion will soon be adding a second pub to go along with it.

According to The Currency, The Notorious has his sights set on acquiring O’Neill’s in Dun Laoghaire.

His accountant, Alan Geraghty, is said to be in advanced talks to purchase the property.

O'Neill's, a 4,730 sq ft two-storey pub, was put on the market two months ago and has a reported asking price of £679,000.
