Home of the Year has returned to our screens for its eighth series with a brand new judge and some impressive interior design.

Looking for individuality, functionality and clever design, judges Hugh Wallace, Amanda Bone, and Sara Cosgrove will each score the homes out of 10 and the home with the highest combined score in each programme will go through to the final in April, where the winner will be crowned.

Over the coming weeks, a total of 21 homes across Ireland will compete for the prestigious title of 'Home of the Year' in 2022.

Denis and Máire Hennessey-O'Connor's Tipperary home

On last night's episode we took a look at Denis and Máire Hennessey-O'Connor farm cottage in Tipperary where they live with their four children.

The couple renovated their farm cottage over a two-year period. It was very important to them that the original feeling of the property wasn’t lost, so they kept as many of the old features of the cottage as possible.

Máire, an interior decorator, designed the interiors to be a balanced mix of traditional and modern. She decorated the family home in a country chic style keeping it homely, cosy, relaxed with modern touches. Click through the gallery at the top of the page.

Home of the Year airs every Tuesday on RTÉ One at 8:30pm.
