WHYTE’S are Ireland ’s premier specialist art and collectibles auction house. In six to eight carefully planned sales a year we offer an unrivalled range of Irish art and collectibles. The entries in our sales are mainly from private collectors and estates, and many have not been seen in public for many years.
Our main art sales are held at the Royal Dublin Society’s Clyde Rooms, in the exclusive south Dublin suburb of Ballsbridge. This superbly appointed venue comfortably accommodates the large attendance these sales attract and the ample and secure car parking is much appreciated by our buyers. Our other sales – including our famous History, Literature and Collectibles sales – take place in Molesworth Street with viewing in our galleries and the auctions across the street at the historic Freemasons Hall.
Whyte’s city centre offices and galleries are located in the last intact terrace of Georgian shopfronts in Dublin, completed in 1831, near the famous landmarks of St. Stephen’s Green, Trinity College, Leinster House and the fashionable shopping area of Grafton Street.
Whyte’s have an unequalled reputation for integrity and discretion acquired over more than two centuries of family business in Dublin. Coupled with our enthusiastic adoption of modern technology we can offer all the advantages and civility of a “bricks and mortar” auction house with the convenience of electronic communications.
All our sales are now broadcast live, both audio and video, on the internet through Artfact (USA) and Invaluable (Europe) where you can watch and listen to the auction, leave bids or bid while the auction is taking place, from anywhere in the world – click here for details.
