O’Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers will launch its Wild Atlantic Way April 18 property auction on Thursday next, March 21. The cut off date to register a property in this auction is set for Tuesday March 19.
This will be the second in the company's Wild Atlantic Way auction series for 2019. Following the record sales achieved in its recent auction where more than €6 million worth of properties was sold, with a 100 per cent success rate achieved for Galway city properties.
The April auction promises to be even bigger and better with a wider selection of properties already registered along the Wild Atlantic Way, and this is potentially the largest auction to be held by O’Donnellan & Joyce. As always the auction will take place in the Harbour Hotel, New Dock Road, Galway, and is set for Holy Thursday. Viewings will commence on Saturday March 23 and viewing times for each property will be listed online on www.odonnjoyce.com and in local press.
O’Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers' Wild Atlantic Way auctions are the largest live auctions in the country, where bidders can attend in person in the Harbour Hotel, or can bid online or on the phone from anywhere in the world. O’Donnellan & Joyce’s auctions are streamed live online by Brandt Studios, and the March auction was followed by a record number of viewers with more than 20,000 people tuning in.
Colm O’Donnellan of O’Donnellan & Joyce said: “As spring arrives, more and more properties come on the market and the April 18 auction promises to have something for everyone — investors, first time buyers, and families trading up."
