Grandfather Clock Repair and Restoration
Clock Jordan specialises in the restoration and repair of ‘grandfather’ (longcase) clocks. Small repairs may be carried out onsite but most will involve workshop investigation.
As these valuable antiques and precious heirlooms require careful handling and setting up, we operate a door-to-door collection and return service. The fee for collection will vary depending on your location.
Austin Jordan will come to your home and carry out an initial assessment of any problems that may be affecting the running of your clock. Further workshop investigation may be required in some cases. You will be provided with a full quotation before any work commences.
Once the restoration is complete, Austin will set up the clock in your home. He will advise you on the best location for your clock and ongoing preservation.
Important Advice for Owners
A grandfather clock should only be moved by a qualified horologist, as even the most careful owner may inadvertently damage the operation and internal workings of the clock. If you are moving home, redecorating or wish to move your clock to a different location within your home, please contact Austin Jordan.

Clock Jordan has teamed up with restoration and conservation expert Nigel Barnes to inspire and educate those who wish to learn more about clocks.
Austin and Nigel run regular clock appreciation workshops in the West of Ireland which cover all types of clock but focus particularly on grandfather clocks. The aim is to give you enough building blocks and confidence to tackle your own antique restoration projects.
