We stayed for two nights in June at St. Jude’s Lodge. Our main reason for choosing it was price and free parking. It’s located on one of the main roads into the city so very easy to find, and city center is an easy 15 minutes walk away. The house is not very distinctive, and gives the impression of a no nonsense business hotel rather than a B&B (usually with a lot of personal touch). The double room we had was very clean although small and sparsely furnished (the little closet had only a few bent wire hangers, a first on this trip). Floor was wood rather than carpeted which we liked. Bed was only a full but quite firm and comfortable. Bathroom needless to say was also tiny, with only a narrow shower stall (it seems to us that just about all the B&Bs have only shower stalls, although the sizes differ), however there was a window which made the bathroom feel a little less cramped. The wi-fi was a bit spotty and slow so required some patience. Breakfast was served as a small buffet with hot items like eggs, sausages and potatoes etc, not outstanding but adequate. The Lodge is run by twin brothers, which we didn’t realize at first so there was some hilarious confusion – like: didn’t you check us in yesterday? And you find out that no, that was his twin brother! In any case, although this is not one of those B&Bs one might describe as “home away from home” (and you don't get a lot of help with restaurant etc recommendations), it’s quite efficiently and well run, and a good lodging option for Galway.
