A five-bed semi-detached house in Salthill sold for more than €600,000 after attracting 48 bids at auction last week – it was one of over 40 properties to go under the hammer at the latest O’Donnellan & Joyce Wild Atlantic Way auction.

According to auctioneer Colm O’Donnellan, Number 77 Devon Park was the “star of the show” – it went to auction with an Advised Minimum Value of €500,000, and bidding opened at €450,000, before the hammer dropped at €608,000.

A three-bed townhouse at 5 St Nicholas Road in the Claddagh, which attracted intense bidding, had an AMV of €325,000 and sold at €348,000.

Other highlights of the auction were:
