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 single seam that sits slightly lower on the head extending just over the ears. This flat 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 smart with a pair of jeans and blazer as it does with a suit and tie. The traditional fit 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 flat 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 most women were simply 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.

Biddy Murphy Irish Gifts Irish Hats For Men Made in Ireland Tweed Flat Cap Fuller Fit 100% Irish Wool Review
  • How does the item fit? Fits true to size

Great purchase

I saw an ad on Facebook that was from a company up in Boston selling hats that look like this. Long story short I got one, later found out they aren't made there, and wanted to get something more authentic and genuine. I found that here. Styling is great, quality and fit are great. I will enjoy this hat on an almost daily basis for a very long time.

I bought two (Large and X-Large) since I wasn’t sure which size I needed. The large is a bit snug and the XL dropped to my ears so I am not sure how they should fit. I am not sure how to rate the size.

Great fit!

I have a larger than average head, must be the brains, but it is hard for me to find good fitting hats that don't look like I am wearing a billed yamaka. This hat is as advertised, low fitting, 7 5/8th, and have already gotten compliments on it and have only had it a week! Slainte!
