Went to see The Dead by James Joyce. Musical version so I thought, that will be a challenge. Very strong performance and very ingenious how the set worked. Overall excellent venue if a little cold.

We found the performance delightful. It has a different feel from Riverdance (which we also enjoy), perhaps more provincial. We made a special trip to see the show. Tralee is a good stop on the way to Dingle.

This was a really great overview of Irish song and dance. I wish I had been able to see the other shows they have. The Irish Coffee is worth it during intermission.

There can be different shows depending on when you go. But allow 2 hours approximately. .. check Siamsa on Google for better more precise information. But do go, you'll love the whole experience

Dear Jim, many thanks for your query and interest in Siamsa Tíre. The on-line booking doesn't allow you to pick a seat, I'm afraid, but you will be allocated a particular seat on the night of a performance. The auditorium... More
