Walking with Ghosts

Gabriel Byrne returns to the Gaiety Theatre for the world premiere of Walking with Ghosts. This unmissable theatrical event, directed by Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price, will play for 12 performances only from 27 January – 6 February 2022.

As a young boy growing up on the outskirts of Dublin, Gabriel Byrne sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city.  Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and a commentary on stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway, he returns to his home town to reflect on a life’s journey.

By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Walking with Ghosts is a lyrical homage to the people and landscapes that ultimately shape our destinies.

Directed by three-time Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price, the creative team also includes Sinéad McKenna (set and lighting designer); Joan O’Clery (costume designer) and Sinéad Diskin (sound designer).


In light of the recently announced government restrictions, the performances of Walking with Ghosts from Thursday 27 – Sunday 30 January inclusive have been rescheduled to the following times. This is in order to ensure they finish by 8pm.

Thursday 27, Friday 28, Sunday 30 January: 5pm
