"The reclusiveness has certainly added to the Enya brand," one of them, who works for a well-known promoter, says.
"I've worked in this game for 20 years and could tell you absolutely nothing about her.
She almost never grants interviews here and her television appearances are few and far between.
Yet, in her biggest markets -- Japan and Korea among them -- she is quite happy to do television appearances and meet journalists.
Originally known as Victoria Castle, Enya renamed it Manderley after the house in the Daphne Du Maurier novel, Rebecca, which was memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock and starred Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine.
That the Manderley in the book burns down at the story's end does not seem to have bothered Enya.
You have to be seriously wealthy to afford an address here, especially if the home that takes your fancy is an eye-catching castle built in 1840.
It is here that Enya -- Ireland's highest selling musical export after U2 with 75 million albums shifted to date -- has lived for 14 years.
And it was he who encouraged her to leave the band and go solo in 1982 and join himself and partner Roma Ryan in a new project. "Pól Brennan said to Enya 'Stay with Clannad and become a star or go with the Ryans and be a nobody'." He insists relations between Enya and her family are good, any tensions have been patched up and Enya visits Donegal regularly.Stop any of the steady stream of walkers on Victoria Road -- many with dogs in tow -- and they say they have never seen Enya in all the years they've walked by her castle. "I've lived in Dalkey for 17 years and I've never set eyes on her," one of them says."The gate is never, ever open."

"There's nothing aloof about Enya whatsoever," Nicky Ryan adds."It's a myth." The Dubliner is pivotal to the Enya success story."Oh, and don't mention the name of this place, please.We'd like her to come back." Enya -- born Eithne Ní Bhraonáin in Gweedore, Donegal -- turns 50 on Tuesday but don't expect her to indulge in photo opportunities.In an age in which most celebrities seem happy to share the minutiae of their lives, the singer guards her privacy to such an extent that she is routinely described as Ireland's best-known recluse. She doesn't hide herself away, she gets out and about but isn't interested in being in the spotlight.It's a word that makes her manager, co-writer and producer Nicky Ryan bristle. She's always been a very private person." Her sense of privacy is exacerbated by the fact that she doesn't engage in the usual promotional activities in Ireland.There isn't the same prurient interest in her private life there, Nicky Ryan contends."I know it's a cliché, but there's so much begrudgery in this country toward anyone who's successful.
