“great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

The place was clean and staff was very friendly (they let us check in very early, which was much appreciated since we flew in that day and had little sleep on our red eye flight). Best part about the B&B was the location -only a short walk to the town center, on very well lit street. I'm not sure about comparable pricing so can't speak to that. Cons - the breakfast was an extra charge & bring your own shampoo/conditioner. Also, we did wakeup to people in the hallway late at night, would have been nice to have more of a buffer between our room and the hallway traffic. We aren't light sleepers - so take heed if you are

On a recent cold winter break in Galway we decided to stay at a b&b instead of a hotel for financial reasons and it was the best decision we made that weekend. The room was warm spacious and very comfortable and the staff very friendly and more then happy to help with any queries we had about Galway also we wear 2 min walk to Galway city centre...Had a great weekend and looking forward to staying at st judes again in the future..

We needed a last minute place to stay in Galway and could not have been more pleased with St. Jude's Lodge! The service was excellent (above & beyond), the location was within walking distance of the town, and the room and facilities were super clean and modern! We will surely be back!

Our stay at St. Judes Lodge could not have been more perfect. The facility is lovely with a great view of Lake Atalia. The proprietors Shawn and John went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to accomodate us. Our room was very spacious (and there were even chocolates on the pillows). Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We were located in walking distance of everything we wanted to see in Galway. We went to the greyhound races, as the track was just across the street. I would recommend St Judes to anyone staying in beautiful Galway

I stayed at St. Jude's lodge for 2 nights and I enjoyed it very much. The place is a great value for the money. The room was clean, spacious and very comfortable, free WiFi available. The location is just perfect, just a couple of minutes from Eire square. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful so I highly recommend the place. The only minor complaint I have was the fact that my room was just across the hall to the cleaners storage room so I could hear them working in the morning although it's more of a my problem because I sleep more than usual.

Room Tip: Room number 3 is near the cleaners storage so it can be a little noise in the morning.

I've stayed in many B&B's in Galway but have never written a review before today. Just stayed a few nights at St. Jude's and will definitely be back next time in Galway. Free parking, 5-7 min walk from Eyre Sq., best rooms and best food (high quality buffet style) I've had in Ireland. Exhausted when we showed up and made to feel completely at home. Couldn't believe the price, especially for Galway City. Stay here.

Everything was in order. The rooms were clean. The beds were comfortable. The shower was hot and the pressure was acceptable. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The proprietors were always cheerful and very helpful. Located a short walk from City Center.
