Based in Newcastlewest, County Limerick, O’Donovan & Associates has been conducting sales of antiques, collectibles, vintage and fine arts for over 35 years. Auctions are held in our purpose built Newcastlewest saleroom and also at various estate locations throughout Munster.
Founded by Pat O’Donovan in 1981, our auctions have become well known for their integrity and professionalism.

The purchaser of each lot in the auction shall be the person deemed to be the highest bidder by the auctioneer. If a dispute should arise as to who is the highest bidder then it shall be at the auctioneers discretion to either offer the item for sale again or to continue bidding from the last un-disputed bid.

The auctioneer has the right to bid on behalf of the vendor on reserved items to help to attain the reserve price.

The purchaser shall pay the hammer price plus 20% incl. VAT buyer’s premium for each and every lot purchased at the auction. We accept cash and all major debit and credit cards (credit cards attract a 2% +VAT surcharge). If you wish to pay by cheque, lots will only be released by us when the funds are secure in our account.
No purchased items of furniture shall be removed from the auction room during the auction; smaller items can be removed only with the assistance of a porter.
No items shall be removed from the auction rooms without they being first fully paid for and the relevant documentation presented to a porter.

It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that the items they are bidding on have been viewed properly during the viewing period. Defects detected after sale by the purchaser will not void sale. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to satisfy themselves regarding descriptions and photographs prior to the sale.

It is the responsibility of the purchaser to remove all purchased items from the sale room within a period of five (5) working days. Storage charges will apply to items at a rate of €5 per day basis after this time. We will undertake postage and packing of lots where possible at the buyer's risk.

The auctioneer reserves the right not to accept bids offered by any person or persons without giving reason for this action.

Whilst the auctioneers make every effort to ensure the accuracy of their catalogue and the descriptions therein, each lot is sold by the vendor with all faults, imperfections and errors of description. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to the auction as to the condition of each lot, and any statement by the auctioneers as to the lot is a statement of opinion only as every person should rely on his/her own judgement as to all matters affecting the lot.
Packing and shipping service available please inquire with the auction house prior to the auction. Not all items can be shipped and packed, so please inquire first. Large furniture can be delivered within the 32 counties.
