Although he seems to be over here at least once a year to promote a movie, it now looks like Will Ferrell may be actually buying a home here in Ireland.

The Meath Chronicle is reporting that Ferrell has bought a holiday house in Mountnugent in Co. Cavan, on the banks of Lough Sheelin. The house, called 'Arley', is described by the sales agent Savills as an eight-bedroom house that comes with over 12 acres of land, a boathouse, a double garage, mature woods on the grounds, and a duck pond. For ducks, presumably.

According to the listing, the house and lands has only changed hands once in 400 years, as it was previously owned by Lord Farnham of Cavan, before the current house was built approximately 30 years ago by an unnamed Irish film industry executive, according to the Meath Chronicle's report.

There's no word yet on whether Ferrell has landed in Ireland to pick up the keys, however the actor - who claims descendants from Longford - isn't keeping much of the interior furniture, as there's a house clearance auction set for today and tomorrow as part of the sale.

If you're feeling nosey, here's the house listing on Savills.
