Did you know that the first ever International Rose of Tralee was the Dublin Rose Alice O’Sullivan?! Since 1959 Dublin Rose of Tralee committees have put on local selection events and selected a representative of Dublin City & Country to participate in and represent Dublin City & County at the International Rose of Tralee Festival in Tralee, Co Kerry each August.

In 2019 the Dublin Rose Centre continues to form an integral part of the Global Rose of Tralee Family.

“The Rose of Tralee celebrates exceptional women and accepts them as the proud people they are, whatever that might be.” Anthony O'Gara, Chairman, Rose of Tralee International Festival

The Dublin Rose team are a group of volunteers who organise events on behalf of the International Rose of Tralee festival. Our team is primarily made up of former Roses and Rose Escorts, all of whom are passionate about the Festival and who work hard to create the best experience possible each year for our entrants, sponsors and charity partners.

The search is now on for the 2019 Dublin Rose! It will be an amazing and unforgettable year for all those girls lucky enough to take part. Follow the link below for more information on how to apply to Become a Rose!
