Fadó Fadó (Long, long ago)

Ireland’s premier cultural experience at Siamsa Tíre presents the best of Irish traditional singing, music, and dancing in Fadó Fadó, a stage presentation featuring traditional Irish music beautifully interwoven with exciting dance and rich choral vocals.

Fadó Fadó (pronounced ‘Fah-doh Fah-doh) meaning ‘Long, long ago’, takes you back to life in Ireland in times past. Moving from the open air of the bog, fields and harvest festivals to the warmth of the hearth-lit kitchen, this wonderful folk theatre production shows how in times past, almost every farmyard activity had a tune to it. Fadó Fadó celebrates the cultural and seasonal traditions, joys and sorrows of a rural family in Ireland long ago. The show takes you on a thrilling journey of Irish music, dance and song with hard shoe Irish dancing along with wonderful musicians performing original scores.

Every summer, its annual Festival of Folk takes place from May to September, featuring evening performances of shows that combine the best of Irish music, song, dance, and stories.
