Last night, the nation gathered into cramped living rooms in overpriced gaffs to find out out the winner of RTÉ’s Home Of The Year 2018.

Overall, there were seven finalists for the judges to mull over ranging from a period-style family home in Belfast to an 18th century renovated mill in West Cork but in the end a humble Wicklow farmhouse won the day.
