We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days at Nicholas's home. It is a perfect location for visiting everything in the city on foot. Nicholas was very helpful in suggesting things to do, places to eat, etc. On our second night there he went to dinner with us where traditional Irish music was featured. I also enjoyed a glass of wine with him the evening before and some wonderful conversation. We would definitely recommend staying there.
Nicholas was welcoming and the room was clean, neat and comfortable. However we would not consider it 'luxurious'. You need to look after your own breakfast as this is not provided. The location was an easy walk to restaurants which was good because parking in Waterford is limited.
Sadly we couldn't meet Nicholas and were received by another guest in his house, which helped us and showed the house. The room was very nice and cosy, and the house was very close to the city center, just a 5 min walk and you're at the heart of the city!
Nick was a great host, very kind and helpful. The room was cosy and comfortable. Felt like home from home. Location is perfect. Thanks
Nick was extremely hospitable and welcoming. He allowed us full use of his kitchen which was fantastic. The bed was vey comfortable and we had an ensuite bathroom as well. Nick also invited us to a musical evening at a local pub where he was playing with several other musicians and we had a great night. The house is an easy 10 minute walk to all the visitor attractions of Waterford. Well recommended.
