Stayed here for two nights as we toured Galway. Nice clean room, good breakfast and they do laundry. By far the best part are the brothers that act as hosts. Helpful and knowledgeable about what to do and see, they are the only guides you will need for Galway city and county.

We travelled as a group of girls. Rooms were lovely and clean. Building was quiet. Staff were lovely and hospitable. Breakfast was 100% and had plenty of options. Location was brilliant beside bus station and only 10 mins walking distance of Eyre Square.

We thoroughly enjoyed both the lodge and breakfast. The owners offer a lovely room at a fair price, and they are warm and welcoming. The lodge is walking distance to both the bus and train station, which meant we didn't need to pay for taxis to get where we needed to be. It's also a nice walk to the old...

St. Jude's was a great place to stay! We had a private room with private bathroom with a view of the water. It is about a 10 minute easy walk into the center of town-- very do-able. Breakfast in the morning was great. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Owners Sean and Donal were very friendly and helpful. Perfect...

The brothers were very nice and cooked a great breakfast! The beds were comfortable and the place was quiet. Plenty of parking and easy walking distance to the center square. They were glad to point us in the direction of grocery stores and good routes to drive to attractions.

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our trip. St Jude's Lodge was both convenient to get to from the south on the N18 and only a 10 minute walk to the city center. Parking was right in front and there was never a problem finding a spot. We were given a nice welcome by Sean along...

Great location! Room was modern and overlooked Galway Bay. We were able to walk to town easily. Spent 2 quiet nights at the lodge. Owners were helpful and let us store our luggage before we checked in.

We just spent three nights at St. Jude's and could not have been more pleased. The location is excellent, just a short, easy walk into town and all the shops and restaurants. The rooms are very clean and modern with new bathrooms and all the amenities. The breakfast is buffet style with many choices, all of which were good. Sean...

Sean and Donal could not have been more accommodating...they couldn't do enough for us. A short, safe walk to town, the B&B is impeccably clean and well-run. We so much enjoyed interacting with the students in residence. We will definitely stay again!

We really liked this place. The room was clean, modern and comfy. The breakfasts were really good. The location was great, an easy 6 -7 minutes walk to the square and downtown.
