Miss Universe Ireland is a national beauty pageant that has selected Ireland's representative to the Miss Universe pageant since 2002.


Between 2002 and 2015, Andrea Roche Model Agency was awarded the rights to host the Miss Universe Ireland pageant and to send an Irish representative to compete at Miss Universe. This came in 2003 after the Miss Ireland Organisation changed owners and dropped the license of Miss Universe. Since then the organisation has been sending the Republic of Ireland's representative to the international beauty pageant.

Beginning in 2017 Britanny Mason, former Miss Indiana USA 2008 took the Miss Universe franchise for Republic of Ireland in Dublin. Brittanny with her management, MOXIE Media Productions aim to produce the new style of Miss Universe Ireland national contest.[1]

Since Ireland's debut in Miss Universe 1961, it has yet to produce an Irish Miss Universe.
