The B&B is very conveniently located to the city center, but very quietly situated. The hosts are super friendly, helpful and attentive. The rooms are comfortable and very clean and breakfast is gorgeous and rich! Best place to stay in Galway!!!

Our room was absolutely adorable and breakfast was wonderful. Perfect place for a little quiet getaway. I went to Galway with my boyfriend with nowhere to stay and we walked into St. Jude's by chance and they gave us a room right away! The room was small, but perfect for a couple who plans on spending the day out in...

My stay was just wonderful, very good breakfast, top bedrooms. They helpt me a lot, gave me good advise and even a raid to town. I never lodged better away from home. Situated 5 minutes away from downtown in a quiet neiborhood.

This is a great location. It is not the quaint B&B you picture in your head when you think of touring Ireland- I'd call this a small hotel or a hostel. Things I liked: very clean and the host was helpful and pleasant. Short walk to town. Things I didn't like: we (couple) got put in a very strange room...

Sean and Donal are amazing hosts. Rooms are well decorated and clean. They are very accomodating, drove us into town when it was raining (so sweet of them). Breakfast is home made and delicious. Highly recommend staying here.

Usually when you enter a B&B or a small hotel the lobby is much more impressive than the guest rooms. The reverse is true in this case. When we entered the lobby, it was dimly lit and not completely welcoming. As a result we were a little apprehensive about what the room may look like. In this case we were...

My 3 friends and I all stayed at St. Judes over St. Patrick's day. We only had 2 nights but they were very comfortable nights. The breakfast offered in the morning was perfect and delicious. The two owners, whom are identical twins, were very welcoming and helpful. Very convenient walk to bus station and train station. Right around the corner...

Lovely little B&B only a few minutes walk from town centre. Sean and Donal were very welcoming and I really wish I had stayed in Galway for more than the one night. I would also recommend the breakfast

We stayed here for two nights. The location is great - just a convenient ten minute walk to Galway's city center. The room was clean, with an artfully done swan/towel waiting for us. We had a car, so I particularly appreciated the free parking. Our hosts were gracious and helpful. The one minor point was that the acoustics through the...

I stayed at St. Jude's Lodge in March 2017. It was very easy to find, free parking in front, and a short walk from the city centre. My room was a large room with four beds, even though I was staying alone. I booked it literally 20 minutes before I arrived, so it was the last room available. I was...
