It comes after Dominic and his wife Catherine Fitzgerald invited the public to stay at Glin Castle as they put on a united front after Lily James scandal.

The actor, whose 12-year marriage to Catherine hung by a thread after he was pictured passionately kissing Lily James, 32, last October, took to Instagram to share they are now renting out their home during Listowel Writers’ Week.

The historic property in Limerick is where the couple tied the knot in 2010 and where they reside with their four children.

Dominic and Catherine married in June 2010 after reuniting following their university romance and have four children together; Dora, 13, Senan, 12, Francis, 11, and Christabel, seven. 

The actor also has another daughter Martha, 21, with former girlfriend, aristocrat, Polly Astor.

The couple claimed in a handwritten note left outside their Wiltshire home: ‘Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together. Thank you.’

Their marriage faced public scrutiny after Dominic was pictured kissing co-star Lily in Rome last year.

The pair also rode together on an electric scooter the same week it was confirmed Lily and ex-boyfriend, The Crown actor Matt Smith, 38, had parted ways.  

While Lily hasn’t publicly addressed the nature of her former relationship with Dominic yet, she said in an interview this month ‘there is a lot to say.’

When asked about Dominic, she replied: ‘I’m not really willing to talk about that. There is a lot to say, but not now, I’m afraid.’
