Home of the Year came to an end this week.

And after viewing some of the most beautiful homes across the country, only one could be named the winner.

Hugh Wallace, Amanda Bone and Sara Cosgrove had the tough choice to pick the Home of the Year.

It was a pretty intense final as we saw Rebecca and Eamonn’s Offaly bungalow, Craig and Matthew’s modern Waterford cottage, Olivia and Kieran’s Derry rectory, Peter Carvill’s Tyrone Gate Lodge, Shane and Marty’s terrace home in Dublin, Ian and Sarah’s converted Cork schoolhouse and Eugene and his son Alex’s 1920s Dublin terraced house go head to head.

So when the winner was announced it was no surprise that not everyone was happy.

Shane and Marty’s Dublin terrace home was crowned victorious on Tuesday night.

They gutted the interior and exterior of the home and changed the front garden layout to allow for an electric charging station for a car.

They incorporated their love for hotels and travels to create their dream home with a new kitchen, new windows and a completely new layout.

Both Marty and Shane were “over the moon” to win.

“We’re delighted, we’re happy, we’re proud, all those emotions!” said Marty.

However, viewers were quick to share their opinion on social media.

Well that’s our housing critic hats put away for another year, until next season!
