Our Explore package is part of our annual Festival of Folk which takes place every May to September, featuring exhibitions, guided tours, workshops and performances. BOOK NOW and enjoy an authentic cultural experience that you will treasure forever!

EXPLORE (75mins)

Our Explore package includes:

  • Guided Tour of Folk Homecoming Exhibition.
  • Guided Backstage Tour.
  • Opportunity to take some great photos with props and costumes.

This package offers a guided tour of the Folk Homecoming Exhibition plus a backstage tour of Siamsa Tíre. As well as sharing their personal insight into life at Siamsa Tíre, your guide will bring you on a full tour of our landmark building, including behind the scenes.

As you Explore, they will tell you tales from their youth when they trained with the National Folk Theatre Training Academy and how they went on to perform and tour with Siamsa Tíre. They will show you how a modern, state-of-the-art theatre operates, and give you an insight into what it’s like to perform on stage.

You too will get your moment in the limelight at the end of the tour when you will be invited to try on some original National Folk Theatre costumes and props which were designed, and in some cases hand-made, by our professional costume and set designers. You are welcome to take photos.
