First and foremost, we pride ourselves on providing a friendly, fun, inclusive and empowering experience for all our finalists, with countless opportunities to grow in confidence and knowledge through workshops in sustainability, modelling, social media, interview techniques and so much more, as well as extensive media coverage and promotion.
Miss Earth Ireland finalists get to have the most amazing time during their journey to our Grand Final. The first part of this journey is attending our Bonding Day where all finalists meet and get to know each other for the first time. Each finalist also gets their official finalist headshot taken and also practices their catwalk too. Our friendly team is also on hand to answer any questions or queries finalists may have here and throughout their journey. This year we had our bonding day at the beautiful Mount Falcon Estate.
Charity Week is a vital part of the Miss Earth Ireland experience. It involves our finalists organising fundraisers to raise vital funds for local & national charities. Finalists can select any charity of their choice including our official charity partners One Tree Planted.
The slogan of Miss Earth is “Beauties For A Cause” and our finalists proved just that with the amazing effort put into their various events for this years charity week.From abseiling down the side of St. Johns Castle in Limerick to a Spinning Class in Donegal our finalists had a great time fund-raising for their chosen charities. Check out the amazing fundraisers which our finalists organised in 2021 below!
Our finalists also attend our official Launch Day where each finalists is presented with their custom sashes featuring their business sponsors on it. At this event they are also given masterclasses in interviews, catwalk and social media to make sure everyone is ready and able in the build-up to the Grand Final. This year our official launch brunch took place in the beautiful Claregalway Hotel in their stunning Bia & Co Alfresco Terrace, where a wonderful brunch and colourful mocktails were served.

As part of their experience each finalist visits their sponsor in the lead up to the final wearing their official custom finalists sash with the business name on it.

Miss Earth Ireland finalists also receive modelling training and experience through our Corporate Partnerships with local Irish businesses.

This is so much more than a beauty pageant. We urge our contestants to have a strong voice and stand for a cause and help make our country and world a better place. Miss Earth Ireland is a competition with a difference.
We also strive to do great work for our country and planet by promoting greater environmental awareness through a number of initiatives. We are very excited to be teaming up with with environmental charity One Tree Planted and we will plant a tree for every lady that enters Miss Earth Ireland 2021 as well as every stream we sell for the Grand Final. We also endeavour to shine a spotlight on our tourism industry and particularly local businesses who need our support now more than ever after a tumultuous year.
