Siamsa Tire - Review

In 1957, a young curator Fr Pat Ahern was sent to Kerry to establish a choir at St.John’s Chruch in Tralee. The choir received tremendous admirors and soon the Friar decided to explore more opportunities. They called themselves Siamsóirí na Ríochta.

The choir preserved some of the folk music and dance like ‘Munnix’ which would have disappeared otherwise. This was noted as one of the pivotal roles of the choir which resulted in the formation of the Siamsa Theatre.

The name ‘Siamsa’ is pronounced as ‘Shee-am-sa’ which means mirth and music, while ‘tire’ means ‘land’. Officially opened in 1991, the centre is a combined effort of Pat Ahern, Martin Whelan and architect Patrick O’Sullivan.

Today the Siamsa Tire stands strong while still functioning to offer platforms for artists from all over Ireland. The ‘Festival of Folk’ held annually is a major attraction here.

Tourists love to catch a show here to have an intimate experience with the art culture in Tralee.

Siamsa Tire, Tralee Reviews

  • This was so bad. Me or my family weren’t impressed at all. The dancing was not that good and the choreography was very repetitive. It felt like going to a 12-year old little sister/brothers school performance. It was definitely not worth the 30 euros nor the two hours of my life that I will never get back. The acting was very poor. It felt like the actors/dancers had no qualifications to stand on the stage. The air in the hall was also really bad. I can’t even say that their clothes looked nice, they were so boring and ugly. It was cool that they sang in Gallic though. An overall really bad show. I suggest you to not come here.

  • Gorgeous building in the style of am old ring fort. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Always an exhibition on, and plenty of shows from all over the world.

  • I watched the stunning "Turas" performance. Wonderful music, great lighting and awesome interaction with the audience. The tap-dancing is unbelievable.

  • I recently saw Olieán and the dancing was amazing. I got a really cool insight to Irish culture and history. It was a great experience!

  • Seating need better managed. With a lot of tour groups people tend to seat as they like and not to the allocated seat shown on ticket.
