What makes a House a Home?

Championing creativity, individuality and clever design, Home of the Year features homeowners around Ireland who have done something special to the place they call home.

The hugely popular series Home of the Year is back for a sixth series starting Tuesday 25th February at 8.30pm on RTÉ One. Over 8 weeks, 21 homes will compete for the Home of the Year title in 2020, with three very different properties featured each week. From restorations, new builds, renovations and re-design Home of the Year features people who have created their dream home. The series showcases very different homes located all over Ireland and homes in this series include a lighthouse keepers' cottage, converted buildings such as a former carriage house and a former shop, re-imagined semi-detached homes, architectural homes, DIY homes, restored period homes and new builds.  The judges making the tough decisions are three expert judges; design legend Hugh Wallace, interior designer Deirdre Whelan and architect Peter Crowley. Looking for individuality, functionality and clever design, the judges will individually score each of the homes out of 10, the home with the highest combined score in each programme will go through to the final, where the ultimate winner will be crowned. Home of the Year is produced by ShinAwiL for RTÉ ONE.
