Watergate Theatre

Watergate Theatre
Kilkenny City, Kilkenny, Ireland.

The Watergate Theatre in Kilkenny was originally constructed as a cinema and the 1940s and was converted into a popular theatre in 1993.

An unidentified ghost has been encountered at the theatre. In 2014, the building’s caretaker was interviewed by a local publication, Kilkenny People. He revealed how he felt as if he were being watched by a figure standing on the gantry above him and how he would often catch sight of “him” in his peripheral vision. While unafraid, the caretaker took to keeping a radio on as he worked to mask the unexplained footsteps and voices he was hearing in the empty theatre.

When the well-known stage hypnotist, Keith Barry, performed at the Watergate Theatre, he reported to staff that there were a couple of ghosts “hanging around” at the theatre and that they had appeared during his show while he was on stage.
