Hi, I'm just wondering if it is possible to only return ways using the reverse geocode method from longitude and latitude.

I'm currently using the query http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse?format=json&lat=53.3533634&lon=-6.363978&osm_type=W.

This however still returns nodes if that's what the co-ordinates point to.

I was wondering if there is a method for finding the way based on the node id, if this is what gets returned based on the query.

Any help on the matter will be most appreciated. Thanks

Sounds like Overpass API is the better approach here, isn't it?

Use the zoom parameter. For example http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse.php?format=html&lat=53.3533634&lon=-6.363978&zoom=16 (you want so change format=html into format=json)
