OK, we booked here because every other Hotel and B&B was full; I hadn't realized that Connacht were playing a home European rugby match. When we arrived, I had to search for someone to check us in, but once I found someone that process was very easy. They did have a small car park out the front that was full,... More

This place is a budget B&B that never lets you down. Got a good deal on their website. Plenty of Parking and Free Wifi but best of all its just a 5 minute walk to Galway Town Centre. Good breakfast and owner Donal always looks after you. Cant really fault.

Stayed at the St. Jude's for 2 nights with my girlfriend. We arrived galway ceannt by train and the b&b is within 5mins of walking from the station (and the city). The room we had was nice and clean and very bright. Fresh towels were provided. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and booked an amazing tour to the... More

Couldn't ask for a better experience. The room was extremely clean and beds were comfortable. The location is excellent. It's within walking distance of the bus station, as well as all the shopping, dining and pubs Galway has to offer. To top it all off, my friend left his passport in the room and didn't notice until later on in... More

Stayed there with a group of lads. Surprised that there was 5 beds in some of the rooms, more like a nice hostel than a b&b, but at hotel prices. I wouldn't put anyone off going there, it's nice and clean and the breakfast was fine, however for the service they provide it is very pricy compared to what you... More

We ended up here because the original place we booked (across the street) either rented our room out before we got there or over booked. Anyway out of the goodness of their heart they booked us a room on the 3rd floor at St Judes despite our original request for a ground floor room due to my difficulty navigating stairs.... More

When we arrived at the B&B we were made as welcome as a mosquito that enters your bedroom at night and told to find our own way to the rooms. One of the rooms was very small and the en suite bathroom was so small that, when one bent down to the wash basin your a... hit the door, which... More

Owners were fantastic and accommodating, went above and beyond. Perfect location, comfortable and warm environment. Room was nice and clean, bed comfortable, shower hot and wifi worked like a dream. There were a group of guys in town for a stag party (and they partied hard!) but never heard a sound. Breakfast was wonderful, as well. Highly recommend it -... More

We just returned from our Ireland vacation last week, and I really had not planned on writing a review on this place, but decided it might help. Like most said, the location was really great. Right up the hill from Galway center. We were on the top floor (A5 I think). We had a beautiful view of the bay and... More

The location is fantastic, 5 min from town center and the best service ever... Though irish hosts are the best it was amazing. Donal was so great and helped us with everything we needed including keeping our suitcases 7 hours later than check out, giving us coffee and snacks and making sure we have everything we needed. Fantastic!
