O’Donnellan & Joyce’s forthcoming auction, which will take place on October 6 from 10am in the Harbour Hotel, Galway, will see more than 60 properties go under the hammer. These properties have attracted exceptional interest not only locally but throughout the country.
O’Donnellan & Joyce commenced its marketing campaign last week and had all 60 properties open to the public. Anne Harding, auction co-ordinator for O’Donnellan & Joyce, said she was overwhelmed with the reaction, particularly from investors outside Galway looking to acquire residential investments within close proximity of the university and the city centre.
