Really comfortable and peaceful place in a great location near the city centre. We got a great welcome from the staff and owners, Sean and Donal, and were looked after brilliantly during our stay. Highly recommended.

Modern furniture, comfortable bed and spacious room. Very clean bathroom. Only downside was low water pressure in the shower. Extremely nice staff, offering us coffee/tea upon arrival even though we were too early for check-in

Myself and my two friends stayed the night and the owners were more than helpful and generous! Breakfast in the morning was great never mind the lovely, clean rooms. Would definitely recommend and thank you to the owners for their hospitality

St. Jude' s has a great location and is a great value. It's ideally located to shopping, food and entertainment. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We loved the swan made from a towel. The breakfast was a filling buffet style so you can get what you want, in the portions you want.

Out of all the hotels and B&Bs I've stayed at, this was on par as being the best (with only 1 other little beaut in Italy). I love finding a gem and this place is a diamond. The second I walked in and spoke to Sean/Donal I knew I was onto a good one. Breakfast was 10/10, it had everything....

I stayed at St Jude´s Lodge for a week and I must say it was second to none in every respect. It´s located about five minutes from the city centre and just ideal if you´re planning to stay at a B&B within walking distance from Galway´s main attractions. The rooms were spotlessly clean, newly renovated and there were plenty of...

The location was perfect - walking distance to downtown restaurants, shopping, pubs. The hosts (twin brothers??) were very friendly and attentive. The room was very clean and comfortable. There was a hot breakfast in the morning. I would recommend this lodge to others.

The location of the BnB was fairly ideal, only a 5-10 minute walk to the city center. Upon arrival, I was greeted by Donal at the door, by my name, without even needing to introduce myself. Donal gave me a quick introduction to the BnB, as well as recommending a few places in the city to visit. The breakfast was...
