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.
"GREAT place to stay in Galway"

We choose Fannerys as the bus drop from Dublin was right across the street. It ended up being one of our favorite places to stay during our trip to Ireland! The staff was wonderful, the food tasty, the bar atmosphere and people were terrific, and our room was quite comfortable!! Within walking distance or short bus trip to downtown area of Galway (fun city!!). Would definitely recommend Flannerys if your plans include a stay in Galway!!
"Hotel Clybaun-Decent Value"

We got a deal which included the night, breakfast, and dinner for two. The price paid for this was decent, but not outstanding. We were fairly happy with the whole experience, although there were some less than satisfactory parts. The leisure center with hot tub was wonderful, although it's a pity it closed so early (8:00 PM). We were only entitled to the continental breakfast, not the full breakfast, which seemed a bit cheap because everywhere else we stayed we received the full breakfast. We were supposed to have a choice of dinner in the bar or the nicer restaurant, but when we checked in, we were only directed to the bar. We thought perhaps it was because the restaurant had already closed, but later we discovered that wasn't true. Not sure why the staff at the front desk was not honest with us, and after seeing the menu at the nicer restaurant, I'm pretty disappointed that we did not have the choice of eating there. My fiancee surmised that it was he was casually dressed when we arrived...if that's the case, then I am very annoyed because we both changed clothes before dinner...we had been traveling all day and therefore obviously not dressed in our best upon arrival. The bed was rock hard...very uncomfortable. The hotel bar had live music going on well past midnight that was so loud we could hear it all the way in our room two floors above and it made it difficult to sleep. The hotel is beautiful and very clean. If I were trying to really see Galway, it would be a bit far out, but the surrounding area is very nice.
