I don't have any experience with Realirish caps. But they look authentic and really well made. In fact, they remind me of a flat cap I bought on the
Aran Islands two summers back. A substantial brown wool flecked tweed. Also picked up a beautiful green tweed cap at Muckross House made by
onsite weavers right there in Killarney.

They indicate that they're made by a Eddie Doherty in Ireland. I'm in the market for a new one and I was curious about these.

I believe they mean that the tweed fabric is woven by Mr Doherty.
I'm pretty sure Hanna makes up the caps.
The site has some other caps (8/4 and flat) by Hanna, and the construction details seem the same.

I don't own any Hannas, but if you check the first couple of pages in this thread, and maybe others farther in, you'll see some 8/4 Hanna caps. http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?23684-The-Cap-Faction

Noggintops also has Hanna caps, and these look very similar. http://www.noggintops.com/

Since they're using real hand-loomed material on the ones you cited, one would expect good workmanship.
