Fans of MICHAEL JACKSON can now sleep in the King of Pop's bed - the Irish country mansion the late star and his kids once called home is now open to the public.
Jackson retreated to Rosemount in County Westmeath in the summer of 2006 and spent months there working on new material with the likes of will.i.am.
Now, estate owner Paddy Dunning, who runs Ireland's answer to Madame Tussauds waxwork museum among other lucrative businesses, is offering holiday makers the chance to live like a King of Pop!
For upwards of $1,500 (£1,000), fans can stay at Coolatore House for a weekend and sleep in Jackson's bed.
Dunning will also share stories of his most famous tenant's walkabouts - so those staying can follow in his footsteps.
He tells The Observer Magazine, "Michael was interested in history and smitten by the intricacies of Irish music."
And he recalls Jackson was left a little shaken up during a walk around the grounds - when he came upon a waxwork statue of his late father-in-law, Elvis Presley, which Dunning retired to the estate.
He explains he forgot to tell Jackson about the odd attraction, which he placed under a tree, and had to deal with a flushed pop star: "'Paddy,' he said, 'I just met my father-in-law in the woods!'"

That's funny about Michael being shaken up n saying about Elvis. But I don't really believe it went down like that. I think it is made up and going to be part of the attraction. Myths of a Legend, so to speak. But, I'll bet they'll get a lot of business from Japanese fans, since it is a custom to be around their heroes' things like the sleepover they did in Tokoyo. I think it's grest. I wish them well. And, I don't think there can ever be a Neverland without Micheal, so I hope to never see one attempted.

That's a cute story. It sounds like something that Michael would say in that situation. I'm happy that he was able to get out of the US & get some much needed peace after the 2005 trial.
