Can't argue with this attraction and it is free. The statue is indeed of Charlie who is a Waterville favourite. If passing through Waterville be sure and stop for a pic.

I stumbled across this status, and found it remarkable in presentation. A very neat and well defined statue, which was immaculately maintained with a beautiful view in the background. Well work a visit.

We liked Waterville as much as Charlie we believe. 😉 Waterville is great and nice to see everyone stop and take pictures of Chaplin.

There is a bronze statue of Charlie Chaplin in the middle of Waterville, quite close to another statue, that of Mick O'Dwyer. Clearly the Chaplin statue was done from an image of him in his younger years before he developed his characteristic paunch. It turns...More

Charlie Chaplin spent some time in the area and is commemorated with a nice statue that greets visitors and tourists before they hit the pub or the beach. This is a much loved piece as evidenced by the wear on his shoulders and arms. So,...More

Stopping in Waterville we were quite surprised to see the sign 'Charlie Chaplin Walk' and then the statue of him. He used to take holidays in this pleasant town on the Atlantic coast.

The last thing I expected to see while ambling down the beach road was a statue of Charlie Chaplin! Nice to find out that he spent time here and loved it so much. Good for a cheeky photo and knowing you're walking the same places...More

Never expected to find a statue of Charlie Chaplin in Waterville. Apparently he also lived there for a while. Nice found.
