What makes a House a Home?

Championing individuality, flair and commitment to design, Home of the Year features homeowners around Ireland who have done something extraordinary to the place they call home.

Over 8 weeks, 21 homes will compete for the Home of the Year title, with three very different and unique properties featured each week.

From unusual conversions to architectural gems and countryside retreats, Home of the Year features people who have built their dream home, just the way they want it. The series will showcase homes from all across Ireland including a converted workshop, a modernist inspired new build, a barn turned dream home and a radically transformed Dublin terrace.

Making the tough decisions on which homes go through to the final at the end of the series are our three expert judges; Design legend Hugh Wallace, acclaimed architect Declan O’Donnell and award winning interior designer Deirdre Whelan.

Looking for individuality, functionality and clever design, the judges will individually score each homes out of 10, the home with the highest combined score, goes through to the final where the ultimate winner will be crowned.
