Room to Improve Full Episode Guide

  • Recently returned to Ireland after 12 years in London, new parents website designer Cliona and IT manager Micheal have already spent 30 grand renovating a 1950s semi-D at Killester in North Dublin in their own distinctive, industrial style.

  • At the seaside village of Portrane in North Dublin, Dermot creates a workable home for three generations of the one family under the watchful, budget-conscious eyes of two sisters.

  • IT manager Christine has bought herself a red brick terraced house in Clontarf, North Dublin. Christine has big plans for the place but as Dermot quickly discovers, they're far bigger than her 130K budget will allow. And despite his best efforts, Dermot is unable to convince Christine to modify her 25 page wish list.

  • Nine years ago, Susie and Dave bought their dream home on the outskirts of Fermoy in Cork - a 170 year old three storey mansion that Susie has admired since she was a teenager. The house however, has begun to show its age and Susie and Dave want to extend and upgrade to create the ultimate family home.

  • Country and Irish legend Daniel O'Donnell and his wife Majella share a large four bed detached home in Kincasslagh West Donegal. Unlike Daniel, who's fairly happy with the place, Majella is keen to upgrade and reconfigure the interior. With her husband on tour, she's determined to get the very best from her architect.

  • In the three years since newlyweds Rosie and Keith bought their five-bed house in Templeogue, Dublin 6, they haven't changed a thing. From the dark, cold interiors to the cavity block, flat roofed extension, this house is a relic of 1970s design, with decor to match. Keen to create a unique take on the rather unimaginative suburban semi, Dermot designs a radical, steep-roofed extension...

  • Having rented a house in Navan for the last two years, teacher Celine and sound engineer Dave are excited at the prospect of moving to a farmhouse once owned by her grandparents at Kildalkey village in County Meath where Celine grew up. The couple will be the fourth generation to live there and retaining the charm and character of the old place is a major concern for the whole family.

  • At Sutton in North Dublin, Dermot extends a 1960s suburban house, changing a beloved childhood home into a sumptuous new one for Hannah, James and their twin sons. To give the couple the 'wow factor' they've asked for, Dermot designs a large L-shaped extension at the rear of the house with a soaring mezzanine level.

  • Moate in County Westmeath, is a place where football is part sport, part religion. On an overgrown plot on the outskirts of town lies the abandoned future home of county GAA All Star Dessie Dolan, his wife Kelly and their 3-year-old son Nathan. They have bought themselves a dilapidated cottage on a hopelessly exposed site in the village.

  • Farmer and Boatbuilder Enda and his wife Mags live on a 55 acre Brussel Sprout farm at Balheary near Swords in North Dublin. After three decades of life in the country, they're moving back to Enda's home town - the picturesque seaside village of Rush. Their new home, formerly owned by Enda's aunt is an old fisherman's house near the harbour.

  • Robbie and Julie from Darndale in North Dublin have saved for over 20 years to buy the house of their dreams - a 1940s cottage in the picturesque north Dublin suburb of Malahide. With a budget of 180K, Dermot's clients plan to gut the cottage, doubling its size with a spacious new two-storey extension to the rear, but the remediation costs are high.
