This year, RTÉ debuted a fantastic new show hosted by architect Hugh Wallace - The Great House Revival followed six homeowners who took on the monumental task of saving their derelict properties.

Country estates, farmhouses, cottages, Georgian buildings – places that once buzzed with life have been left to rot all across Ireland.

With hard work, determination and a strict budget, these homeowners have transformed these building into fabulous homes fit for the 21st century.
