Welcome to the Galway Rose Centre Website.

The Galway Rose Centre is part of the Rose of Tralee International Festival and holds the yearly Galway Rose Selection to discover who will be the next Galway Rose.

The 2013 Galway Rose is Kate Kennedy.

Three Galway Roses have won the coveted title of Rose of Tralee:

Sheila O'Hanrahan (1980)
Niamh Grogan (1992)
Luzveminda O'Sullivan (1998)

(click on the More tab for a full gallery of Galway Roses from 1967)

Various events are held as part of the Galway Rose Selection, including social get-togethers, judging interviews and a briefing which gives you a chance to meet your fellow entrants and find out a bit more about what's involved. The winning Rose then goes on to represent Galway at the Rose of Tralee Regional Festival, along with the other Irish Roses and Roses from around the world.

If you are interested in finding out more about this year's event or have any questions, please email galwayrosecentre@gmail.com or leave a message on 0871474100.
