The space

A comfortable apartment in a period house in the heart of Ireland’s oldest city, ideal for business or leisure. Sleeping 2 -4 we offer a luxurious Queen size bed with memory foam mattress and cozy goose down bedding. This can be arranged as 2 single beds if required. Please note it is either a double bed or 2 singles. In addition there is a comfortable three quarter sized sofa bed in the sitting room. All linen and towels are provided. The shower room, sitting room and kitchen dining area in this bright and spacious accommodation are well designed for convenience and comfort. You will find all basic cooking ingredients in the fully equipped kitchen plus tea, fresh coffee etc. and Tesco supermarket is just 3 minutes walk away. Guests have access to Wi-fi and the apartment has a flat screen TV with numerous freeview channels. There is off road parking for three vehicles and a quiet private communal garden/patio area with barbeque facilities.

The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a large Victorian house situated on the edge of the Viking Quarter of Waterford, where history can be traced back to 914AD. Three museums, the world famous House of Waterford Crystal and the delightful Theatre Royal nestle into this corner of the city where you are never far from the banks of the river Suir. Take time out from city life in the People’s Park ideal for strolling, jogging, relaxing or enjoying a snack in the quaint Park Lodge café, just 2 minutes walk away. For families there are children’s playgrounds and a skateboard park for the teens. 2 minutes in the other direction will bring you to the multiplex cinema and a Tesco store. This convenient location is a 5-minute stroll from the city centre where excellent shopping and a wealth of restaurants and pubs to suit every taste await you.

Waterford airport is a 15-minute drive away and Dublin and Cork are both an hour and a half by road. There are also frequent rail and bus services to both. For those who love the coast Tramore, one of Irelands most delightful seaside resorts is just seven miles south of Waterford City. There are many scenic drives and walks along the Copper Coast or through the stunning Comeragh mountains for daytrips out.

Waterford holds numerous festivals throughout the year and there is always a full and varied programme of events in the local theatres and clubs. Nick has close links with the artistic community in the city and has enjoyed hosting many visiting artists, musicians, actors and crew.

We have two additional double bedroom with en-suite bath/shower available on request for €30 for one person and €40 for two sharing. We can also make available for hire our large period dining room for meetings or for entertaining up to 12 people by prior arrangement.

If you are someone who objects to a bit of dust or the occasional hair on the floor in a corner of a room please DO NOT BOOK THIS SPACE. And if you are a cleanliness freak and you do book this space, DO NOT COMPLAIN as you have been warned. This is not a dirty space, bur equally it is not an ice cube. This is me sharing my home with you, If this is what you want then go ahead and book and I would be delighted to host you. As you can see nearly all of my guests have really enjoyed their time here.

Great place to stay in Waterford city. Take note that this is self cleaning and the condition may vary depending on previous guests efforts.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nicholas's place. Nick was a gracious host and seems lovely, although we didn't have too much interaction. The flat had all the main amenities and a radiator, which definitely helped! The location of the home is perfect, it's about a 5-10 minute walk to anything you'd need in the City and the noise level is quite low. Thanks again!

The unit was exactly as pictured and the location is very convenient and close to the town center. Waterford Crystal Factory is very close, and it was great to have a parking place while we walked over. We had a most enjoyable stay. Some visitors with large suitcases should be aware of the three flights of steps involved in reaching the unit.

Great apt. Wonderful location and short walking distance to shop, local non touristy pubs, and great food. His house is charming and you have great privacy. Nick was very accommodating and kind, great information and always ready and available to help. Hope I can stay there again.

Perfect location to explore the city center. On-site parking was a big plus. Cozy apartment, beautiful patio. Would definitely recommend.

This home is small but comfortable and just a 5 minute walk to the grocery and two minutes more into the heart of Waterford. The flat is a three floor walk up, which was fine for us but could be tough w several kids or families with limited mobility. The kitchen was well equipped with everything one might need and the linens were really cozy. Nick and Nina were friendly and went out of their way to make sure we got great views of the float set up for the amazing Sproai parade! Waterford is a fun town to stay in and was honestly one of the highlights of our five town Ireland trip! There was parking and everything in town was walkable so we never worried much about moving the car in our 3 day stay. If you are sensitive to mold this flat might not be the fit for you, as my mom and in both had slight allergies there, but otherwise this is a great place to live stay. We would definelty go back if we find ourselves in Waterford again.
