The Biddy Murphy Irish Tweed Cap is made with 100% Irish wool and handwoven in Co. Tipperary. This old-school design boasts a quality finish with its brim and single seam that sits slightly lower on the head, just over the ears. This cap’s plush lining makes it even more comfortable and warm. Just like you, this cap wears well, is durable and is something you will enjoy for years. Known for its versatile style, the cap looks just as smart with a pair of jeans and blazer as it does with a suit and tie. The Irish wool is lightweight and breathable so you can wear your Irish flat cap throughout all seasons. Discover your unique style when you don this Irish Tweed cap and be delighted by the distinguished image staring confidently back at you in the mirror.

Made by John Hanly & Co. they have long-established roots, known to be one of the few remaining traditional textile weavers and manufacturers in Ireland. Family-owned and operated from Ward’s native Co. Tipperary, Hanly has special meaning at Biddy Murphy because it reminds us of home. What started in 1893 remains true today as Hanly still operates from their gorgeous mill close to the banks of the River Shannon, near picturesque Dromineer on Lough Derg. Our friend, Brian Hanly, is the third-generation to carry on the family’s tradition of quality woven textiles.

Biddy Murphy was launched by Ward Gahan in 2004, who was inspired to share his joy of Ireland. He wasn’t pleased with how his homeland was portrayed as he poured through mail-order catalogs selling so-called Irish goods when it was something clearly made in China. Each time he traveled to Ireland he would have requests from friends and family to bring back something which fueled his desire for authentically Irish goods. Named after Ward’s mum, Bridget, aka Biddy Murphy, a true trendsetter of her day- she drove a car, when women were merely passengers, loved fashion and had a deep appreciation for the traditional methods of crafting. Ward has created an Ecommerce store for Biddy Murphy to share his and his mum’s desire to share the joy of Ireland and other worldly experiences.

Love my new hat!

Fits beautifully. The many colors in the patchwork will lend itself to any outfit. Looking forward to ice-skating and horseback riding with this hat for warmth and to keep my hair under control. Love the style.

Excellent products and customer service

I recently ordered my fourth Biddy Murphy cap and my second patchwork tweed cap. Apparently someone liked my first one so much that they “borrowed” it from at which I was eating. I reordered a replacement and I was not happy with the colors and patterns. I contacted Annette in customer service and she was extremely helpful and understanding. Shortly after returning my cap, I received a replacement patchwork cap that is exactly what I wanted. Hats off to Biddy Murphy!
