With over 70 properties to choose from, this month’s O’Donnellan & Joyce Autumn auction is set to attract hundreds of people on the day.

Already, the agency has reported an extremely busy weekend last week for open viewings, with viewers taking particular interest in the large family homes on offer.

Among the larger residences which will go under the hammer on the day is 36 Maunsells Road off Taylor’s Hill, which is a four-bed detached house in what is a very sought-after area. The property spans around 1,700 sq ft and has a large mature rear garden and ample off-street parking to the front. Situated on a local bus route and within walking distance of the city centre, many amenities including primary and secondary schools are just moments away. The Advised Minimum Value is €475,000. Open viewings Wednesdays and Saturdays 3.30pm to 4.30pm.

Another house that has captured the heart of some viewers is the very charming 79 Devon Park on Salthill, a mature four-bed property in a quiet residential area. It’s a short distance to both Salthill village and the city centre and is in need of some modernisation, but has huge potential to become a lovely family home. The AMV is €450,000. Open viewings Wednesdays and Saturdays 5pm to 6pm.

Across the road from UHG and NUIG is No 6 University Park, a six-bed semi which is within walking distance of the city centre. It has off-street parking to the front and a good sized garden to the rear. It would make an ideal family home, or an investment property because of its location and size. The AMV is €420,000. Open viewings Wednesdays and Saturdays 12.30pm to 1.30pm.

On the Headford Road in Galway is No 1 Ballinfoyle Mews, which has been recently renovated. It’s a large four-bed detached property offering spacious living accommodation. The large private landscaped gardens are ideal for lounging and entertaining and include a paved patio area, spacious detached garage, ample off street parking and tarmacadam driveway. The AMV is €320,000. Open viewings Wednesdays & Saturdays 2pm to 3pm.
