Dublin couple’s semi-detached home to appear on new series of RTE’s Home of the Year




Home of the Year has celebrates the creativity and individuality of homeowners all over the country.

The 10th season will return later this month so we can take a peak inside some of the most gorgeous homes in the country.

Over the course of the season, it will take a look at 21 stunning properties around Ireland.

This series will feature re-imagined semi-detached homes, renovation projects, architectural homes, restored period homes and new builds in locations in Antrim, Clare, Cork, Derry, Dublin, Galway, Kildare, Louth, Mayo, Offaly, Waterford and Wicklow.

Aoife and Tim who live in an end of road 1960’s semi-detached home in Dublin will appear in the first episode, with their two young daughters, teenage son and 4 dogs.

The couple fell in love with the 3-bed semi-detached house and knew they could create their dream home.

They gutted the whole house and gardens and designed a layout that works best for their family, creating a 5 bed and 5 bath energy efficient home.

Though it was a labour of love for the family, they are delighted with what they have been able to achieve and how the home feels bright and airy while still feeling warm and cosy.


They will be up against a schoolhouse from Cork and an eco-minded self-build home in Co. Clare . 

The three popular judges are back to rate the homes out of 10 for individuality, functionality, and clever design.

Making the difficult decisions are the returning judging panel of architect and founding partner of Douglas Wallace Consultants, Hugh Wallace, award-winning architect Amanda Bone and award-winning interior designer Sara Cosgrove.

Speaking ahead of his tenth series on Home of the Year, Hugh Wallace said: “Two hundred and ten delicious homes visited over a decade and my heart still flutters with excitement to walk through the hall door and get inspired. Love it!”


Interior designer Sara Cosgrove said: “Delighted to be part of series 10 of Home of the Year. I loved travelling the country with my fellow judges, seeing the diversity of design and home styles.”

Architect Amanda Bone said: “I believe a home is a reflection of the homeowner and a source of well-being, so it’s fascinating discovering what people enjoy and how they express and see themselves.”

The series airs on Tuesdays at 8.30pm on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player starting from February 20th 2024.
