Hegartys Antiques and Fine Art Auction Rooms are on the move! Despite a very successful move to Weir Street in Bandon a number of years ago, Hegartys have decided to take their auction experience to Cork City. Weir Street in Bandon Co Cork is the location of Ted Hegarty’s monthly auctions (the first Sunday of the month) and having toured across Munster in previous years, Hegartys rooted their auctions in a permanent site on Weir Street in Bandon Town. These auctions have grown in popularity over the last few years and are a regular Sunday outing for a very active and loyal group of antique and fine art lovers. Such is the success that Hegartys have decided to run their first auction in Cork City in Vienna Wood Hotel in Glanmire, viewing on 22nd and 23rd of Nov with the auction itself on Mon 23rd.
Ted Hegarty’s focus on finding truly unique and desirable antique furniture and great Irish art has meant that true gems are always on offer. Value for money, entertainment and information might not always be synonymous with antique and fine art auctions but when you visit a Hegartys Auction these are the sentiments you leave with. The knowledge that exists in the business ensures that truly valuable items are always on offer. This knowledge translates to the visitor via simple, concise and informative lot notes and indeed Ted himself is present and happy to talk you through what he has to offer. This approach of informing people and giving them an insight into a particular piece of furniture or art helps to demystify the world of auction rooms and make attending more accessible and enjoyable for his customers. This personal service and approachable atmosphere makes visiting the auction a real option for a much wider target audience.
So if you want a new experience or have a empty space in the living room, visit any of Hegarty’s auctions in Cork on the 22nd/23rd of Nov or on the first Sunday of every month in Bandon and be surprised at how much you will enjoy it!
Cork Auction: Vienna Wood Hotel in Glanmire; Viewing 22nd from 7pm-10pm and all day on 23rd of Nov (until Auction starts at 7.30pm).
