Our History Keanes Jewellers
Our History Keanes Jewellers
Over 70 Years of Excellence


In 1948 a young watchmaker, Patrick Keane, began repairing watches and clocks at a premises on Patrick’s Street in Cork City. Little did he know that this would be the beginning of a business that would soon become synonymous with quality and exceptional service, not only in Cork, but across Ireland.

Spanning many generations, over 70 years, Keanes Jewellers continues to carry on the Keanes legacy of offering the finest watches and outstanding service.
