Personal Life: Dominic has a daughter with a former girlfriend named Polly Astor (daughter of British politician Michael Astor). At some point after that relationship ended, Dominic began dating a woman named Catherine FitzGerald, whom he met and previously dated while they were both studying at Trinity College Dublin. Dominic and Catherine married in 2010. They have four children together.
Catherine comes from an aristocratic family, the FitzGerald dynasty. Her late father Desmond FitzGerald was the 29th Knight of Glin and the family has owned Glin Castle in County Limerick for over 700 years. Unfortunately the knighthood of Glin became extinct upon her father's passing in 2011 since he had only daughters.
In 2015, Catherine, her mother and her sisters decided to place Glin Castle up for auction with a starting bid of $8 million. They did not land an acceptable offer and instead decided to keep the castle within the family. Today Dominic and Catherine reside in the castle as the primary family home in Ireland. They also own a home in Shepherd's Bush, London.
