Nicholas was a really good host. He had a problem with electricity because of the storm but made everything for us to have light. The bed was very comfortable and we had a private bathroom. he proposed us tea and coffee and adviced us a really nice pub arround the corner.
Nicholas is a really nice host and I reccomand him
We only got to stay in Waterford one night, but we had a lovely time! The house was so quaint, and our room was warm and cozy. Lots of parking on the street also, which is great if travelling by car. Highly recommend this central location!
Nicholas und sein Haus sind wirklich sehr zu empfehlen - Nicholas ist eher ruhiger aber unglaublich herzlicher und umgänglicher Mensch. Durch ihn haben wir viel erlebt und viele hilfreiche Tipps bekommen. Das Haus ist in Ordnung, einzig die einfach verglasten Fenster, durch die war es recht kalt und laut war könnte man bemängeln. Alles in allem hätten wir es nicht besser treffen können! Thanks Nick :-)
Our stay with Nick was wonderful. His house is quite eclectic and tidy and is in a perfect location for walking to the city center. Better yet, Nick was an excellent host who shared his love of and talent for music with us. Would definitely recommend for anyone staying in Waterford!
Nick was fabulous, he was kind enough to pick me up at the train station. His place is everything stated; 10 minutes to downtown, 5 minutes to a large grocery store, and next to a park. I was lucky to meet Nick's mother (on her 90th birthday) and his brother. The evening in the pub with his family was great, Nick plays a mean guitar. Will be in touch on my next trip to Waterford. Thanks for everything Nick.
Great location, lovely park accross the road from the house and walking distance to the city centre. Pubs, supermarket and cinema all close by.

to know about places of interest in Waterford or activities

thanks for your hospitality Nick.

Nicholas was a great host. The home was beautiful and located not far from aanything. He also picked us up from the bus stop without question. Thanks for a great stay!
I only stayed for one night and the room was lovely with a very comfortable bed. Checking in was a bit of an adventure but everything worked out well in the end ! I would like to stay here again as it is very central to everything in Waterford city.
