"Tralee is home to Siamsa Tíre,..." County Kerry Local Custom Tip by jonno99

County Kerry Local Customs: 6 reviews and 7 photos


Tralee is home to Siamsa Tíre, Ireland's National Folk Theatre.

If you would like to sample Gaelic culture, however, the folk theatre Siamsa Tíre (pronounced, roughly, 'Sheemsa Teera') puts on a range of excellent shows featuring traditional Irish myths, songs, dance and stories. The language of the performances is Irish, but you do not need to be able to speak Irish to enjoy them. Siamsa Tíre's theatre lies near the Ashe Hall at the end of Denny Street.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
