It's certainly a case of quality over quantity at Don Colleran's next auction on October 24 as all properties are in very desirable and much sought after locations in the city, from Renmore and Old Mervue to two properties just off Eyre Square in Forster Court and Bohermore.
With prices starting at €95,000 there is something for everyone, whether you are a first time buyer, an investor, developer, or someone looking for a home in one of Galway’s longest established and much sought after residential areas.
It is not difficult to see why Old Mervue has become so popular with first time buyers and investors, as this mature residential estate remains affordable despite its convenience to the city centre, shopping centres, and of some of Galway’s largest employers, with Boston Scientific, Hewlett Packard, and Thermo King on the doorstep. Included in Collerans next auction is No 9 Tone Avenue, Mervue, a two bedroom terraced bungalow that has the added advantage of one of the largest sites in Mervue with large gardens front and back offering lots of room to extend, subject to planning. Accommodation includes entrance hall, sitting room with open fireplace, kitchen/dining room, scullery, two double bedrooms, and a bathroom. There is oil fired central heating. Due to its location and attractive guide price this house will be of immediate interest to first time buyers and investors. Advised minimum value €180,000. Open viewing Saturdays 12 noon to 12.30pm.
Also included in Collerans auction is No 6 Dun na Mara, Renmore, a spacious three bedroom semidetached home in one of Galway’s most popular residential areas. In need of modernisation, which is clearly being reflected in the price, this is a rare opportunity to acquire an affordable property in a much sought after part of town. Renmore is an established residential area and this home is within walking distance of all necessary amenities, which includes shops, schools, churches, leisure centre, and regular bus services. Situated just off the old Dublin Road, the property is less than a 10 minute walk from GMIT and Ballyloughane Beach. In addition to the three bedrooms, two of which are double, there is a large sitting room with open fireplace, a separate sun filled south facing dining room with open fireplace, kitchen, utility area with downstairs toilet, and garage. The large, mature, south facing back garden offers lots of room for an extension subject to planning. If you are looking for a family home or investment, or somewhere your children can live comfortably and safely while attending college in Galway, this property will certainly be of interest. Advised minimum value €240,000. Open viewing Saturdays 1pm to 1.30pm.
In the city centre Don Colleran has two very different properties for auction just off Eyre Square. One is in turnkey condition and the other in need of total redevelopment, which has clearly reflected in the advised minimum value of only €95,000. No 117 Bohermore on the main road opposite Tonery’s Bar is a terraced property that is not for the faint hearted but offers an excellent affordable opportunity to acquire a property in the city centre for a home or investment with all necessary amenities on its doorstep. Accommodation includes two living rooms, extended kitchen, and bathroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms on the first floor. In need of total redevelopment, there is the added advantage of a large west facing back garden which leaves lots of room for an extension, subject to planning. Advised minimum value €95,000. Open viewing Saturday 2pm to 2.30pm.
Also for auction just off Eyre Square, and in turnkey condition, is No 110 Forster Court. This attractive three bedroom semidetached house is situated in an extremely popular and much sought after residential development just off Eyre Square.

Built in 1990 with large open green space and mature trees, Forster Court is in the city centre with every amenity on your doorstep. This home is in excellent condition throughout and ready for immediate occupancy. If you are looking for a city centre home with all the obvious benefits or a gilt edge investment within walking distance of all amenities, this house will have to be considered.
