In this year's celeb special, viewers watched as judges Hugh Wallace, Deirdre Whelan and Patrick Bradley peeked inside the homes of five Irish celebs; Senator Norris, presenter Lorraine Keane, author Melissa Hill, 2FM’s Eoghan McDermott, and rugby star Mike Ross.
In the end, the three decided that Senator Norris’ restored Georgian home in Dublin city centre was a worthy winner.
Senator Norris bought his period home in the heart of Dublin almost 40 years ago and restoration has been an ongoing process.
The four-story-over-basement terraced house has been restored to its original state along with some modern touches including a mural on the wall going up the stairs.
The furniture is all in keeping with the period and his home is full of family heirlooms and David uses every part of the house.
Celebrity Home of the Year judge Deirdre Whelan explained why the period home won her over:
"This was a fabulous home, beautifully restored, but the best bit was the personality and humour evident throughout the home. This home totally reflected the person that lives there. I loved visiting it."
As the winner of this year’s show, Senator Norris has won €5,000 to donate to a charity of his choice.

Home of the Year returns for a new series later this year.
