The staff was available and kind and the building is in a good location very near the city centre. I didn't like the matress because it was not very comfortable and the prices were a little high. The room was cosy and well furnished.

This is the first poor review I have written but I was so disappointed. I had paid €115, not including breakfast and given my experience in Belfast, Derry and Limerick I had certain expectations for that price. I did not expect a perfunctory welcome, poor wifi, a tiny bathroom, stained towels and a fraying bathmat. To be fair, the breakfast... More

We choose this B&B because it was close to the bus station but it it was quite expensive at 125 euro per night, breakfast not included. The room was OK but the floors were sticky and towels, though clean were quite old and stained. The staff however were very helpful and friendly which made up for the above mentioned issues.

Upon arrival, I was greeted with a smile and received all the information needed. My room overlooked the lake and was clean. I immediately changed into my running shoes. The lady, whom I never received her name, informed me that it was safe in any direction but let me know that I could do the lake. I loved the location... More

My mate and I rode our motorbikes around Ireland and stopped in Galway. On finding this fabulous B and B our one night stop turned into three great nights. Our room was huge. It was spotless and cleaned daily. The buffet breakfast was great and the staff were just so professional and friendly it was like I was in a... More

Because we reviewers are ask to rate the lodge from one to five circles, the middle a labeled "average" I decided on that because the hosts were friendly and helpful, the room pretty awful. I spent four nights at St Jude's Lodge in late May 2014. I was greeted by the twin brothers who run the place in a welcoming... More

We recently visited this property and stayed in Ireland. The location is very good. Close to shopping, and good food. We visited the aran islands and really enjoyed that day trip. We found the rooms small. Hot and cold water on and off. The rooms were not clean. The breakfast was held under steam each morning. Breakfast was not desirable.... More

I love this Lodge in Galway, walking distance from shops. The proprietors are warm, helpful and run an efficient and spotless Lodge. I highly recommend them and their efforts to continually improve what is already a lovely place to stay.
