Whitegate (Irish: An Geata Bán, meaning "the white gate") is a small village on the R352 regional road in northeastern County Clare, Ireland. A tightly knit community shows through even though many of the old buildings are gone. What was once the church has been in disuse for many years and has now become a warehouse and lumberyard. All that is left of the oldest buildings is a small cottage which has crumbled and caved in on the cross-roads.

A new church has been erected and there are many new houses have been built along the main street. Local pubs include The Half Barrel, and The Nightingale.
