Rose of Tralee

Legacy



In our beautiful Town Park you will find the statue of William & Mary, the Rose of Tralee. Surrounding this statue stands the Rose Wall which carries the names of all the Roses from 1959. Along this pathway Kerry County Council created a wonderful walkway linking the Rose Dome and the town centre, which was dedicated to the memory of the 2011 Washington D.C. Rose Dott Henggeler.

On the Killarney road roundabout approaching Tralee there is an impressive giant Rose sculpture and more recently early 2017, Kerry County Council with support from the Henggeler family unveiled the famous Rose logo statue on a plinth at the entrance roundabout to the Rose Hotel which in 2016 was purchased by the Henggeler family and is adjacent to the site of the Rose Dome.
