Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.
1. Dear Martin, for a house to be exempt from Capital gains Tax in Ireland upon sale, it must be a person's principal private residence.
2. This means you must live in it as your main residence. If you live in England, then your Irish house is not your main residence.
3. So, that means that your house in Ireland is subject to Capital Gains Tax upon sale, if you live in England.
