Venue hire & corporate social responsibility programme

Consider hiring Siamsa Tíre for your corporate event or conference. Our principal venue in Tralee includes a 350 seater auditorium, a rehearsal space, exhibition spaces and a meeting room which is also suitable for talks or workshops.  The two Tithe Siamsa in Finuge (North Kerry) and Carraig (West Kerry) are also available for hire. 

Siamsa Tíre now offers Corporate Social Responsibility programmes for incoming conferences and events. All proceeds support the continuation of the local cultural art forms through the National Folk Theatre Training Academy, while giving conference delegates firsthand experience of Irish song and dance from Ireland’s premier performers. Delegates learn about the history of these cultural forms and gain an appreciation for the skills and stamina required to perform on stage followed by a back stage tour of the iconic theatre and arts centre.   

Bespoke performances 

If you are investing in your clients, staff or members and organising an event, the National Folk Theatre can tailor a performance to suit your venue and event schedule.  Siamsa Tíre has provided welcomes at airports and opening ceremonies, showcasing our cultural heritage through traditional Irish music, song and dance, and presented folk theatre performances mid plenary during lunch, mid dinner courses or to follow dessert. These performances have been provided in venues in Ireland and internationally.
