The Herman Wilkinson Auction Rooms on Lower Rathmines Road has been under present management for over 30 years. The last of the traditional Auction Rooms, with a wide variety of specialist auctions in addition to Dublin’s most famous weekly household and furniture auction, these rooms have been continuously a feature of the Dublin commercial landscape since 1928.

Our longstanding reputation for integrity, professionalism, quality and value, attracts vendors from all over the country and are thus positioned to offer an unrivalled selection of quality furniture, garden tools and machinery, indeed everything you need to equip and furnish your home to a high standard at prices that are often a fraction of the retail price for equivalent items. We hold between 80 and 90 auctions every year, more than any other auction rooms in Ireland.

The Herman Wilkinson Auction Rooms is particularly attractive to young people furnishing a first home. In such cases the opportunity to find high quality almost new furniture or something to serve as a temporary solution at very attractive prices is hugely important. A range of specialist auctions held throughout the year means that whether you are seeking value in fine art, jewellery, collectors’ items, office furniture or high quality oriental rugs, the Herman Wilkinson Auction Rooms have something that’s right for you!

Our Household and Furniture Auction takes place every Thursday at 10am sharp. Viewing for the Household and Furniture Auction takes place on Wednesdays from 2-6:30pm. Our Swan Hall Fine Art Auction takes place every 4 to 6 weeks on a Thursday commencing at 10am, and viewing for the Swan Hall Fine Art Auction takes place on a Tuesday from 2-5pm and Wednesday from 10-9pm.

Our specialist auctions are run throughout the year with a variety of sales ranging from Jewellery, Coins and Stamps, Oriental Carpets and Rugs, to full onsite House Auctions.
