To wear an Irish Flat cap properly it should sit around the middle of your head, not too far forwards or too far back.  This traditional Irish headwear is also known as a Paddy Cap around the local community, a Bunnet in Scotland, a Dai Cap in Wales and a Flat Cap or English Cap in America. Packing all your clothes carefully and making sure you haven’t forgotten your passport, euro’s, travel documents, maps and a journal to record all your adventures.
