“ That incomparable Irish mist , we reveal the Ireland you had only dreamed of colourful, unstuffy, and infectiously attractive mix of styles and people. Polished floors, robust Irish cooking, medicinal whiskeys, fly-fishing and storytelling characters, Islands, mountains, and goats who own the road, boat trips and magical wishing wells, just do absolutely nothing , breathe in the impossible beauty"

The Neighborhood

The small seaside village of Waterville has often been referred to as the 'Jewel' on the famous Ring of Kerry.Nestled on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, hugging the shores of Lough Currane (famous worldwide for salmon & specimen sea trout) and enjoying a magnificent backdrop of lush, rugged mountains, it is little wonder that Charlie Chaplin fell in love with this idyllic, picturesque location.Chaplin returned to Waterville for many years with his wife Oona and their children, as, according to members of the Chaplin family, Waterville afforded him a tranquil haven where he could enjoy spending time with his family in relative anonymity. Many locals remember him strolling along the seafront promenade which runs along the centre of the village, his privacy always respected.

One of Chaplin's favourite pursuits while in Waterville was fishing on Lough Currane.

His grandson Julien (a regular visitor to Waterville today) recounts a story of his grandfather having had a fruitless day on the lake, deciding to head to the fish shop in Caherciveen to buy some Salmon and return to the Butler Arms Hotel claiming that it was he who had caught them, an obvious indication that Chaplin was not only a comedian on screen, but also a bit of a joker in reality!
