THE JUDGES of The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland competition have narrowed their search to just five places which are in the running for the overall award.

They include one village, one small town, one large town, one city, and one suburb or urban village.

They are: Ardara, Co Donegal; Westport, Co Mayo; Killarney, Co Kerry; Cork city; and Rathmines in Dublin.

They’re announcing the winner next Monday.

Meanwhile, where do you and yours flourish currently?
