“Soooo Good!”
Reviewed 5 June 2011

We have just come back from our trip to the west of Ireland and this was our highlight. 20 performers singing and dancing and retelling ancient Irish myths and legends. We booked our tickets on the website www.siamsatire.com as we were advised that they sell out quickly. It was the best 25 Euro we spent.. The staff were so accommodating too, my husband has mobility issues and nothing was too much trouble. This theatre should be given a prize for customer service, it was excellent. I will be coming back !!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 14 February 2011

We went to Siamsa Tire at the end of Summer last year, it was a gorgeous evening and the show was absolutely excellent. It was based on the Blasket Islands and the ensemble 25 cast and musicians were superb!!!
Our tickets were very reasonable but we got returns as it was sold out so we were actually lucky to get them...
If you are in Tralee this is a must see....

“Brilliant Show and Brilliant Value”
Reviewed 12 February 2011

We went to see the National Folk Theatre at Siamsa Tire and it was excellent. We went to see Clann Lir about the Children of Lir and the audience were on their feet at the end, it was a very emotional experience. The staff were so warm and friendly and could not be more helpful. The theatre is set in the middle of a lovely town park and it is a beuatiful setting. If you are going to Kerry then you must go to Siamsa. I would book in advance though we only just got our tickets as most nights they are sold out! We were very lucky...

“Essence of Ireland”
Reviewed 30 October 2009

We're so glad we saw the show at Siamsa Tire - one of the best things we did on our trip. This is the real thing - very well done, theatre with some dance and live music, done in Gaelic. We saw a show about the culture of an island...
