The personal life of RTE Dermot Bannon in the magnificent house of Drumcondra with his wife and three children
Dermot Bannon has made a name for himself as a man who travels the country to redesign homes on RTE’s Room to Improve.
Here’s everything you need to know about the TV icon, from his wife Louise and their kids to his life off the small screen.
Dermot was born on May 2, 1972, which makes him a happy 49 years old.
Dermot has been married to his wife Louise for 19 years.
They even grew up in the same city.
Louise and Dermot are parents of three children. Sarah, 15, Jacques, 12 and Tom 8.
Both parents do their best to keep their children out of the public eye.
Speaking to RSVP magazine, Bannon explained, “One of the ways we try to protect them is to keep them out of the spotlight and no one knows who they are. They lead very regular children’s lives.”
“What is famous is that the perception other people have of you is changing, you don’t change yourself. I’m still the same person as I was 20 years ago.”
His program RTE Room to Improve has been broadcast since 2007 and has more than 60 episodes. It has become a staple for watching TV on a Sunday night.
When asked why it became such a hit, Dermot said, “I don’t think there’s anything else on TV on a Sunday, maybe that’s why it’s such a hit. If I could bottle the formula I would, but that’s part of the beholder. “
He has also presented his own show called Dermot Bannon’s Incredible Homes since 2019.
It involves traveling the world from Sydney to London to see some of the most incredible homes around.
Dermot and Louise make their home in North Dublin at Drumcondra.
Bannon recently renovated his home in Drumcondra and showed it to the country in a two-part episode of Room To Improve.
It was far from a simple renovation as Bannon ran into budget issues while working in the huge back garden.
âWe added a big extension to the back and to the side. We gutted it out and renovated everything. I don’t know if this is everyone’s dream home, but it’s my home. dreams. We pushed the boat out, “Bannon told RSVP.
