Don Colleran’s final auction of the year completed what was a very successful year for property sales in Galway. While the focus of this auction was on investors wishing to avail of the capital gains tax exemption before the end of the year, previous auctions held by Colleran’s during the year highlighted the huge demand the company has for quality family homes around the city.
It was a real case of quality, not quantity, at Colleran auctioneers’ packed auction last week when five properties in the sought after areas of Shantalla, Claddagh, Newcastle, and Salthill were offered for sale.

This remarkable photograph of Shantalla village was taken in 1945 by Pádraic Mac Dubháin and is from the National Museum collection. You will sometimes see the place name written as Shantallow and you will hear it pronounced Shantla by people with Galway accents.

Maybe it is because some of the land was not being worked.
Following on the huge success of Colleran auctioneers’ last auction, in which all properties sold, the company now has even more attractive value in its June auction with properties in Galway’s most sought after areas of The Claddagh, Renmore, Newcastle, Mervue, Shantalla, and Salthill. The Claddagh still remains one of the most desirable locations in Galway for both investors and home hunters, as was certainly the case at Colleran auctioneers’ auction last month when South Park Place, Claddagh, exceeded all expectations.
The absence of any prominent public artwork on the Seamus Quirke Road raises questions over whether the Galway City Council applied for money for such work under the Per Cent for Art Scheme.
If you are thinking of selling up, Mullery’s auctioneers is urgently seeking residential properties for sale to meet current demand. Its agents report strong demand for houses in all areas of the city. There are shortages of houses on the market in areas such as Knocknacarra, Roscam, Renmore, Salthill, The Claddagh, Shantalla and Newcastle. There is also an improving demand for apartments in the city centre and suburbs from both investors and first-time buyers. Larger detached family homes in areas such as Knocknacarra, Salthill, Roscam and Oranmore, are sought by families looking to trade up from smaller homes.
