The host took great care of us from the first minute. He even helped us park the car. This was more than we expected when we were looking for a B&B. Great service, nice rooms (almost like a hotel room, just as good) and good breakfast. Thanks from Norway!

The Host (I believe Ita) was incredibly nice, accommodating and gave great local restaurant recommendations. We ate at "The Fisherman" for dinner which was close by and wonderful. Breakfast was delicious and the room was large and quiet. Although our stay was short, it was very pleasant and we would recommend it.

You must stay here! Ita and her family are wonderful hosts. They'll help you find fun things to do in Galway and will make an amazing breakfast in the morning. Extremely clean and comfortable rooms. The patio and garden out back is just lovely- I have great memories on this patio from our trip!

We had a serious miscommunication about the booking - we needed more beds in the room. Even though they were sold out because of the Galway races, they still figured out how to solve the problem. Nice breakfast. Clean accommodations Great job & thanks!

What a wonderful B & B. The rooms are very clean and so comfortable. Bathrooms are also clean and great showers. The dining room is nicely appointed and wonderful food. Great cooks. Location was also great. Close to the ocean and not far to city center. There is bus that goes by regularly. Parking good and garden and entrance area... More

Location is about 5 min walk into the city centre. Local bus stops outside. Quaint excellent feel upon entering the building. Not a thing out of place. The brothers are great to talk to, pass on local knowledge and assist with anything from refilling water bottles to printing out the boarding passes you need to booking that tour. 900 metres...

Great review but its about the wrong establishment. This reviewer stayed at St Judes Lodge in College Road Galway and not at St Judes B&B Lower Salthill. We are happy to stand over our own reputation and reviews that reflects stays with us. Ita & Tony Johnstone, St Judes, Lower Salthill, Galway. More

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a great stay. The location is perfect for time in the city centre as well as having the sea on your doorstep in Salthill, just 10 minutes walk away. To be honest, we also walked to and from the city, which is about 20minute walk away, or you can get the bus right... More

Thank you for your comprehensive and accurate review. Delighted you enjoyed the dogs and your stay at St Judes. As you've commented, we are upgrading our wifi so that it is accessible in all bedrooms throughout the house and expect to have that completed shortly to overcome the challenges that a period house, such as ours, provides in this regard....

On this 9 day Ireland trip, l wanted a mix of quaint hotels, castles and B and B's. Our room was very small and devoid of any amenities. No shampoo, lotion and soap at sink in dispenser.

Nice location just north of City Hall and Eyre Square. Big room and bathroom but the TV is old and tiny. Free printer was very handy for printing directions. Host was eager to please. They had a good breakfast for an extra 6 euros.
