The majestic Waterville Golf Links Many accommodation options are available including the beautiful Waterville House, an 18th-century Georgian manor. Within the village, you have the homely 4 star Butler Arms Hotel and The Sea Lodge to name a few. Family-run B&Bs and guest houses are also available and offer charm and unmistakable Irish hospitality. Waterville has a nice selection of bars and restaurants including the fabulously refurbished Waterville Golf Links clubhouse, Smugglers Inn, The Lobster Bar & Restaurant, Dooleys, and the Fishermans. Such is the idyllic location, wealthy US investors chose Waterville to create their private Golf Resort, Hogs Heads. Statues of Charlie Chaplin, who holidayed in the area with his family regularly, and Mick O’Dwyer, one of Ireland’s greatest GAA personalities and perhaps Waterville’s greatest son, adorn the seafront.
