What Is the National Costume of Ireland?

Answer

There is no set national costume for Ireland, as Irish people have worn different clothes over the centuries. However, most Irish men wear tight knee breeches, hob-nailed boots, a hat known as a Caroline hat and a swallow-tail coat. The half coat is also staple in Irish wear, and many people in the country still wear them today.

The traditional dressing mode of Ireland people during the early days was inspired by the Gaelic and Norse costumes. The dressing was consisted of check trews for men, which was worn with a fringed cloak or mantle and a short tunic for both men and women worn with a fringed cloak. Women also wore the crimson homespun skirt, which reached till the ankles worn with a simple black bodice.
