Enjoy the best of Irish music, song and dance at a performance at Siamsa Tíre Theatre in Tralee, in beautiful County Kerry. This year, Siamsa Tíre celebrates its 40th anniversary with four wonderful shows on stage.

Fadó Fadó dramatises a whole year's cycle of living and working the land through the eyes of a family living in rural Ireland 100 years ago.

Oileán celebrates the Blasket Islands in times past, capturing the way of life of the islanders and their traditions.

Clann Lir is a magical performance based on a classic Irish legend which tells the story of King Lir's four children who are turned into swans by their wicked stepmother.

Turas features music from all corners of Ireland beautifully interwoven with exciting dance and rich vocals.

Make a real night of it and enjoy an early bird meal at a local restaurant. On presentation of a ticket for that night's performance, patrons can avail of a special price menu at Bella Bia (across the road) or Finnegan’s (around the corner).
