The National Folk Theatre of Ireland – Siamsa Tíre, traditional Irish culture on stage, – a truly magical and authentic experience Thousands of visitors to Kerry have picked out a performance by the National Folk Theatre in Tralee, County Kerry, as a highlight of their trip to Ireland.  Performances are delivered using all the strengths of Ireland’s traditional artforms which fuse to create a memorable and emotional experience for visitors. Regardless of where our visitors come from, or what language they speak, these stories can be experienced and enjoyed by people from all over the world. From its beginnings in 1968, the National Folk Theatre was set up to preserve and explore Ireland’s traditional music, song and dance through training and performance.  The company continues to develop new and exciting work and tours annually both in Ireland and abroad. Previous seasons featured performances of Oileán and Clann Lir, two of the most popular and acclaimed productions in the repertoire of the National Folk Theatre.  The programme notes for both productions are available in German, French, Spanish, Italian and Dutch as well as English and Irish.  We do hope you can join us in our beautiful theatre in Tralee, County Kerry for an evening of Irish traditional culture that will remain with you long after you leave…  From October to April, Siamsa Tíre hosts a wide variety of events across all of the arts – drama, classical music, dance and visual arts.  For further information, check out our website on or call our Box Office on (066) 7123055
