The final auction of 2016 for Galway auctioneer O’Donnellan & Joyce is set to take place tomorrow, December 16. The hammer is set to fall 40 times in the company's Wild Atlantic Way Christmas auction, commencing at 2pm at the Harbour Hotel, New Dock Road, Galway.
O’Donnellan & Joyce staff are holding the last viewings for the auction this week and there is a great selection of properties for sale. The full range of properties for auction include counties Donegal, Leitrim, Cavan, Mayo, Roscommon, and Clare. Visit www.odonnjoyce.com for full details.
Mary Fahy of O’Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers commented: “We’re looking forward to our final auction ending on a high note, as we have been experiencing strong levels of interest in all properties listed up and down the Wild Atlantic Way. Both sectors, residential and commercial, are attracting interest from home owners and investors. Even after price levels have risen in recent times, there is still value to be had, especially in the smaller towns across Connacht.”
Anne Harding, senior sales manager and auction co-ordinator at O’Donnellan & Joyce, added: “There was a time when December would have been deemed to be a quiet month for auctions – not so any more. O’Donnellan & Joyce can report that all open viewings have been extremely busy for both investment and residential properties with good results predicted. Most notable for sale this Friday is Beach House on Inishmore. Beach House is a superb property being sold by Dragons' Den's Barry O’Sullivan, who is donating the proceeds of the sale to Focus Ireland and COPE Galway. Another property that is drawing particular attention is a lovely family home in Cornarone East, Inverin.”
Ms Harding added: “This auction promises to be both exciting and successful. In total there are 40 lots ranging from investment properties to family homes and there are also some sites and land on offer.”
The Harbour Hotel will be buzzing on Friday as O’Donnellan & Joyce bring 2016 to a close — a year that has been one of its most successful for auctions to date.
