Information about Art, Antiques and Auctions in Ireland and around the world


Des O’Sullivan’s art ant blog is an independent up to the minute guide designed to help you keep in touch with the ever changing range of what is on offer at the auctions, the fairs, the galleries and the shows in southern Ireland.

It is for everyone, including you.  Headlines are grabbed by the most expensive pieces. Yet every sale has its bargain and hundreds of lots – furniture, paintings, prints, porcelain, glass, silver, clocks, bronzes, jewellery and collectables – change hands for low prices every month.

Above all, collecting is fun.  Anyone, on any level of income, can be a collector, even in a recession.  Living intelligently, with a sense of style and grace, can be done on a shoestring. Right now the market is patchy, it is difficult for sellers to give proper estimates and there is tremendous value out there. All you need to know is where to look….

    Just reading your ABOUT section. I could not agree more.

    For 20 years I have been organising Antique Fairs country wide from Cork to Belfast. I have had the honour of dealing with the best antique and fine art dealers, middle of the road antique dealers and those who just deal for pin money. My experience has taught me one thing and that is that everybody has their own level.
    The realistic dealer has dealt with the downturn and is now surviving very well even though at a more competitive level.
