A beautifully crafted classic Irish grandfather shirt.

Along with the iconic Aran sweater, the Irish grandfather shirt began life as workwear for Irish rural dwellers. Like the Aran sweater, it has now become a classic wardrobe staple.

Always striving to bring you the best, our selection of traditional Irish grandfather shirts comes from the renowned Lee Valley of West Cork. Inspired by memories of his own grandfather wearing these shirts in days gone by, Denis Hurley started designing and producing these classic shirts in a converted creamery in the village of Inchigeela in 1986. The rest is history.

Choose from the traditional double blue stripe, classic navy stripe or striking navy/green tartan. Each shirt is lovingly crafted from the softest brushed flannel cotton and features a 4 button front fastening, a jetted pocket, and a long shirttail. The cut is generous for ultimate comfort and effortless Irish country style.

A gift for him from Ireland that gets better with every wear.
