We stayed in Ireland for 4 nights, 2 of which were spent at St Jude's. After a 5 hour bus journey from Waterford we didn't know what to expect upon arriving at St Jude's (although the outside is quite grand and pleasing to look at), but the room definitely exceeded our expectations. It was lovely and really nicely furnished with...

St Judes was probably the most graceful B&B we stayed at during a recent 17 day tour. The furnishings were immaculate. The room was nicely-sized, and the staff were very helpful. Location close to Galway centre and Salthill very convenient. Private parking a definite plus.

We just returned from a 3 week driving tour of Ireland and Scotland, staying in B&Bs, and enjoying the diversity of the settings and accommodations along the way. St. Jude's was lovely - beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and delicious breakfasts. It was within comfortable walking distance to Galway's restaurants and castle, as well as the Salthill area...

My boyfriend and I took a 10 day self drive tour around Ireland in May 2013. Of the 10 nights, 5 were spent in B&B's and since St. Jude's was our first B&B stay, we didn't know what to expect. Upon arriving, the beautiful stone house was impressive with room to park in the front. After ringing the bell, the...

Arrived at B&B was greeted by daughter of the home her mother was not in and would return shortly. She showed us our room and offered tea. While in sitting room mother returned and walked passed without greeting us. The next morning at breakfast the server was short and abrupt. The mother came out of kitchen after she had made...

Very surprised and disappointed at this review. Sinead greeted the guests on arrival, provided complimentary tea and cake and chatted to them about this being their first trip to Ireland, their Clare ancestery, answered questions and gave them advice on the locality and suggestions for dinner. It is disappointing they did not acknowledge this element of their one night stay.

This location on Lower Salthill is in convenient walking distance to the bay in what appears to be an up and coming area. There is also a bus stop in front of the B&B for a short ride into the center of town. The room was tastefully decorated and comfortable. The daily breakfast was excellent as was the service. There...

This was probably the most "North American" B&B we stayed in ... Not something we were looking for, as we like the homey places too. Our host Donal was very solicitous, and when he couldn't accommodate us for a second night, he gave us a room at his very new Abbey, just down the street on College. Also very clean,...

This was by far the most beautiful B & B we have stayed in. Our room was large with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was large and had an excellent shower. Breakfast was made to order and very good. The location was perfect. I can't say enough about this B & B......

We spent one night in this beautiful 1920's style house. We stayed in room 1. It was a beautiful room. The whole place is spotlessly clean. Breakfast was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay again when we find ourselves back in Galway. Thank you for a lovely stay in your beautiful home.

This is a B&B in the Salthill section of Galway. It is in a 1920's stone house. The owner Ita Johnstone is all the chef that provides the breakfests and the evening meal. We stayed in room 1 and I feel that it is the best room in the house. We had a wonderful breakfest and she pointed out some...

Many thanks for your review and delighted you enjoyed your stay. We should point out that Room 2 at the front of the house is a mirror image of Room 1 and all the other rooms, while some may not be as large, we like to think are kept to the same high standard. Ita and Tony
