Whyte's

Whyte’s, founded in 1783, are today Ireland’s premier specialist art and collectibles auction house. They hold six to eight sales per year, featuring a wide range of Irish art and collectibles, primarily from private collections and estates.

Whyte’s major art sales are conducted at the Royal Dublin Society’s Clyde Rooms, while their other sales (including History, Literature and Collectibles auctions) are held at their Molesworth St. premises and the historic Freemasons Hall. The Molesworth St. terrace that houses Whyte’s galleries is the last remaining intact terrace of Georgian shopfronts in Dublin, completed 1831.

Whyte’s combines their 200-year history of business in Dublin with an enthusiasm for modern technologies, offering both the advantages of a traditional auction house and the convenience of live web bidding.
