Get behind the scenes of TG4’s Ros na Rún’s TV Set for Culture Night 2023

A first for TG4’s popular drama series Ros na Rún, as it opens its TV set for visitors this Culture Night.

Fans of the long running drama can come to Spiddal to see the large custom built sets, and get an insight into what it takes to make the show, from 4:30pm – 6:30pm on Friday, September 22.

Ros na Rún and Culture Night fans are invited to book their place for an exclusive behind the scenes tour and Q & A session with the popular Irish language TV drama series.

The occasion promises an exciting glimpse of what’s involved in the making of a TV drama series inclusive of viewing the individual sets, production spaces, green room and learning all about what’s involved from scripting, writing and acting and of course production values which brings the drama to our TV screens.

Ros na Rún, meaning the valley or village of secrets, will share many of its production secrets with visitors, giving fans a sneak peak of what it’s like to be in Tigh Thaidhg, Berni’s Cúl Chaint Café and Gaudi’s where Bobbi Lee works. There will also be a visit to Máire’s B&B, Berni’s Apartment and Siopa XL Ros na Rún.

Learning how a TV Drama series is created, written, filmed,  edited and produced will be at the core of the experience.

This will form part of a live Q&A session with members of the production team who’ll take to the high stools of Tigh Thaidhg to share their production secrets which they hope will inspire future actors, writers, crew, TV Directors and Producers.

Marion Ní Loingsigh, series producer, says “We’re very excited at Ros na Rún to be part of the prestigious Culture Night Programme and it’s our first time to participate and open our TV set to Culture Night Fans.”

“The Irish language is at the soul of Ros na Rún as is acting and creative writing all of which embellish the culture of rural Gaeltacht life.”

“Sharing our behind the scenes tour of this very unique TV set which combines two working studios is exciting for us. We’ve come along way and want to share our high quality production values with our loyal fans and Culture Night enthusiasts.”

Ros na Rún now in its 28th season is Ireland’s only rural based TV drama series. The TG4 Irish language drama is the only working and purpose built television set on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

It is also the biggest artistic production outside of Dublin employing close on 180 people during its production season.

Pre-booking by emailing is essential to ensure a spot for fans to get a look at where the magic happens.
