Given we are in midst of the festive season, the Limerick City Tidy Towns’ final monthly award of the year is aimed at businesses with the most beautiful and striking Christmas lights and decorations. For many years Keanes’ shop frontage has been one of the most attractive in the city and adds greatly to the wonderful appearance of the heart of Limerick’s retail district at Christmastime, especially given their very prominent corner location at the junction of William Street and O’Connell Street. Even at other times of year, it is a beautifully maintained attractive building, so this award is fully-deserved and we are delighted to acknowledge the effort they make.

Keanes Jewellers are this year celebrating their 70th anniversary, having started out as a watch and clock repair shop in Cork back in 1948. This was the start of a family business that has become synonymous with fine jewellers in Ireland, offering outstanding craftmanship, service and reasonable prices. Together with their flagship store in Cork, Keanes also now have our award-winning shop in Limerick city and also Killarney. Their employees have been trained to the highest standards, displaying great expertise in their relevant areas, particularly when it comes to diamonds. All their diamonds are ethically sourced and priced to reflect quality, all year round, and the option to speak to one of their experts about designing customers’ own bespoke rings is also available. For more information call them on 061 481080, visit their website, email, or simply drop in.
