Hughes Roses is a wholly Irish owned and operated company, specialising in growing and supplying the Irish Market with quality roses for over 50 years. The business is completely family run. Currently being overseen by Marie, Brian and Colin, the second generation of Hughes Roses, rose growers. This 2nd generation continue to uphold the company's high standards of excellence and quality customer service.
Founded 50 years ago, Hughes Roses Ltd. began life as a small-scale one-to-one retailer of roses. Set-up by Marie and Gerry Hughes in the 70s, the roses were grown in their back garden and supplied to the local and surrounding areas. Despite these humble beginnings the company quickly garnered a reputation for the beauty of their roses and the quality of their service, qualities that are still key to the business’s success today.
In the 1970s, anticipating the consumer shift towards Garden Centres, Hughes Roses moved away from retail and shifted their focus to wholesale. This successful change, prompted the company to move to a bigger location in Swords.
The continued success led to another move in the 1980s. Hughes Roses left their Swords location and set up in Garristown; where the business is still located.
Currently in its second generation, being overseen by Marie and Gerry’s sons, Hughes Roses Ltd. retains its commitment to providing quality roses to the Irish market.
