A Tralee hotel is to be relaunched as the Rose Hotel.
Refurbishment works at the Fels Point Hotel will be unveiled on April 8th, along with the name change.
The hotel was purchased last year by Dick and Eibhlín Henggeler, whose daughter Dorothy was a former International Rose of Tralee contestant.
Mr and Mrs Henggeler have purchased the hotel as part of a plan to support the festival–a plan which includes the construction of a permanent dome nearby.
The newly-branded Rose Hotel will also serve as the centre for the festival.
