Theatre For Young People

Bring the entire family along to a theatrical experience that will excite and entertain them. Attend a performance here at Siamsa Tíre and show them just how special a trip to the theatre can be.


We organise all sorts of fun and creative workshops throughout the year, which make for a great family day out. From dance workshops to pottery and illustration, kids from toddlers right up to teenagers will find activities to inspire and engage them here at Siamsa Tíre.


We host family events such as exhibitions. Our gallery programme regularly includes family-friendly art exhibitions that feature self-directed activities that will keep the little ones entertained while you linger over the artworks on display.


Siamsa Tíre is also home to the Siamsa Tíre Youth Theatre which gives young people aged between 12 and 15 a safe space in which to explore the world through the medium of drama. This has been closed since Covid, but watch this space for news for 2023.

And we mustn’t forget our National Folk Theatre Training Academy, which will expand its remit in 2022 by offering classes in music, song, and dance to children and young people other than those enrolled in our formal three-year training programme. So if your child is interested in drama, music, song, or dance, you should check out the classes we have to offer.

Family Theatre

Here at Siamsa Tíre, we look after our younger audiences by regularly scheduling family events and activities. But we make an extra-special effort to do so during the school holidays.

We organise theatrical experiences, song and dance workshops, and a range of arts and crafts activities and seasonal workshops over the school holidays.

We have special festive events for Easter and Halloween is a riot of family events with our Samhain Festival.

And at Christmas, families can look forward to our annual WhistleBlast festive show, pantomime, festive ballet performances, and much more.

If you’re looking for a fun day out for the family, an event that everyone will enjoy, or a kids’ activity that will divert the little ones for an hour or two, you will find all sorts to entertain all ages here at Siamsa Tíre.
