Great place to watch a show 😁

I’ve been to see “Big Maggie” a show by a school “Mercy Mounthawk” and it was brilliant I’ve also been to see a road tour circus 🎪 Siamsa Tire is expensive but worth the trip if the show is good 👍🏻 Recommend everyone visit ‼️

Went to the legends of american country show on 23 feb. Before the show started people were asked to switch off their phones. This was not enforced by the management or staff.We were seated near people who had their phones on constantly.The flash was a distraction all night. Can people not turn off their phones for a few hours and enjoy a show,and not ruin it for every one else.Management should follow through and insist phones are switched off.

Incrediable Production
Sep 2019
On our visit the play was about the Blasket Islands. Knowing the Blasket Island Story was a help.as the play is in Irish. Our tour guide Patrick told us about the Islands earlier in the day because were were in the area and could see the Islands offshore. He did not know that it was the play they would present that day as the have several different productions. The cast was excellant from the adults to the children. The death and wake seand were very moving. At intermission we had Irish Coffee that was very good. This is well worth the trip.

Globus Optional Tour Siamsa Tire Folk Theatre
Sep 2019
This is an optional tour you do not want to miss. The food, drink and entertainment was fabulous and worth every penny. We did this during our Scenic Ireland Tour with Globus Sept. 2019.

We experienced a wonderful evening watching "Turas". The musicians were very good and it was fun to watch them have fun playing. The dancers were very good as well. We hope to go back.

Fabulous show
Aug 2019 • Family
A beautiful theater with comfortable seats and small enough to see the stage from all seats. The lobby is beautiful and there is a snack bar. We saw ANAM with 3 musicians and 4 stellar Irish dancers. The show was terrific and the biographical dances of each dancer were really informative. They were all so talented. If you are in or near Tralee, check the schedule and go. So reasonably priced too.
