About us

Galway City is where we call home. But there is no corner of the country that our services don’t cover. From auction sales to lettings and property management, we cover it all!

It all started in 1982...

O’Donnellan & Joyce started building its foundations over 50 years ago when Colm O’Donnellan & Tony Joyce became friends. Little did they know, they would celebrate over 35 years in business together. 

While sport was their main interest at the time, Colm & Tony started their careers in property with a strong focus in lettings and private treaty sales. In 1984, the duo held their first auction on the Aran Islands and from there, the brand and the business that we are today was born.

With 14 full time staff members and many dedicated departments, the company have expertise in every area of the property industry and pride themselves in being Ireland’s Largest Independent Auction House as well as offering the full spectrum of property valuations, lettings and management services and consulting. O’Donnellan & Joyce are also the largest new homes sales agents on the West Coast of Ireland and have worked with some of the best known developers in the country over the years including O’Malley Construction, Burkeway Homes, JRBOC, Renaissance Property and Kinport Construction.

The company are also very well known locally and nationally for their corporate and social contributions to the wider community. At the helm of many charity auctions around Ireland, Colm O’Donnellan is normally found with a gavel in hand and a very entertaining show is put on. Colm and the team have also participated in many events in aid of COPE, Madra, Galway Hospice, Cancer Care West and more.
