Cable Station Exhibition

Uncover the history of the Commercial Cable Company's Trans-Atlantic European terminus from its early days in the 1880's right through to the 1960's. With cables to England, The Azores, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Le Havre, Waterville was home to one of the largest cable stations in the world!

This permanent exhibition housed in the Tech Amergin, Community Education and Arts Centre in picturesque Waterville, Co Kerry tells the story of Waterville's cable station through a series of interpretative panels covering topics such as how the cables worked, the cable station during war time, and the impact the cable station had on the locality. It also comprises a collection of original equipment and artefacts, including a fascinating photographic archive.
