Certificate of Excellence

My husband & I stayed at the St Jude's B&B in Lower Salt Hill during our bike tour of Western Ireland with Iron Donkey. We absolutely loved St Jude's. Cozy elegant lodging, comfortable room, beautiful lawn. Easy walk to Galway along the promenade, and very short walk to Salt Hill where we found a neighborhood Italian restaurant.
Delicious breakfast.

If you don`t have a limousine with chauffeur, make sure it is at least a taxi or rented car to enter St Judes drive-way in proper style :-). We stayed here for three nights and instantly loved the elegant house, with its tastefully arranged rooms. The service provided by Ita and her family was certainly unobtrusive, but kind and complete nonetheless. The B&B is outside Galway`s city, but not more than a pleasant 30 min stroll along the sea. There is also a regular bus service. The center of Salthill, with severals bars, restaurants, shops and the beach promenade, is round the corner. We liked it here.

We found St. Jude's B&B in Salthill, Galway online when we were booking our trip from Massachusetts. We arrived a bit on the early side which was not a problem. There were 4 of us traveling and we were given identical front rooms which were beautifully decorated, clean, and very inviting. We walked to Eyre Square and spent the day and evening there. The breakfast selection was very good - and included fresh fruit. We would love to come back again for a longer visit someday!

Room Tip: Ask for a front room - although I didn't see any of the other rooms, the front rooms were beauti...

This B&B is walkable to everything around, charming, wonderful food, wonderful hosts and close to wonderful restaurants. After dinner you can walk along the path of Galway Bay. Ita Johnstone is a wonderful hostess. Even with our room at the front of the house, it was peaceful for a good nights sleep. We would return to this charming B&B if and when we returned to Galway area.

St Jude's could not have been more accommodating of my family. My father needs a ground floor room, and Ita made arrangements to accommodate him. We came in early from the airport and she gave us a warm, cozy place to wait for our rooms to be ready and let us check in early. Breakfast was lovely, the home and gardens were lovely and Ita couldn't have been more gracious.

We stayed in several B&B's in Ireland. St. Judes' was our favorite. The house is beautifully appointed and very clean. The hostess is kind. A full and delicious breakfast is offered. Minutes away from the beach. If you plan to spend more than a night check out their cooking classes.
