“I love going to Siamsa Tire – it’s a professionally run theatre with a broad programme of traditional Irish song, dance and drama as well as top notch local dance and musical theatre and then some great visiting shows.” – Trish

“We visited this show as part of a tour group. Ages ranged from 12-80, and everyone loved it! The talent in this show is incredible! All of the singing is in Gaelic, but the program explains what is happening in each scene. The musicians and dancers were very impressive. (Think Riverdance!) After the show we got to talk with some of the cast, ask questions, and take pictures. I cannot say enough good things about this show!” – Wendy

“We went to see the Anam show which was about folk dancing, music and song. It was amazing. The personal stories about some of the dancers and their different styles were great. The music and song were powerful and at times haunting. The four men dancing throughout the show were brilliant all with different styles. They displayed great stamina to carry this on for such a long time. At the end of the performance they got a standing ovation and it was richly deserved. One of our highlights of our time in Ireland.” – Derek

“I love Siamsa Tire theatre. It could not be in a more beautiful setting right in Tralee Town Park with the mountains as a backdrop. The building is exceptional in its design with more than a nod to Ireland’s ancient past. The World-Class musicians went way beyond simply performing. They achieved several of those rare moments of pure MUSICAL MAGIC. Even if you do not attend a performance, you can visit one of the many art exhibitions in the building.” – Tony

“What an outstanding show, Fadó Fadó, amazing from start to finish, well done on a fantastic performance everyone!” – Laura

“Snow White was amazing. It exceeded my expectations by a long way. There were some real talents on stage, loads of audience participation, fantastic costumes, loads of laughter and some great surprises.” -Mags
