Out of curiosity, I looked up Devon Dell on Trip Advisor and, to my delight, found that Berna and the B&B are still not only going strong, but going from strength to strength. We have stayed at Devon Dell on three occasions but, sadly, the last time was probably 15 years ago. The first time we visited, Berna was new... More

What a little gem Berna is, this B&B should be used as a blueprint for all others. Position great, room lovely, breakfast fabulous and the Hostess amazing. Dublin had disappointed us and then we came to Devondell to experience the Ireland we had dreamed of.

Berna made us feel very welcome in her home at all times. Nothing was a trouble and she was always so cheerful and ready to have a chat. She was happy to help us with local information on parking, restaurants etc. Berna is renowned for her breakfasts and on both days they were gastronomic delights. For dinner we found a... More

Berna's Kelly's Devondell is an exceptional B & B because Berna makes it so. She is a great cook who serves amazing breakfasts, freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit salads, melt in your mouth croissants, lovely cheeses and much more and then a full course breakfast if you have room. We thoroughly enjoyed her wit and charm and she is very... More

We stayed at 8 different B&B's while we were in Ireland and Berna's breakfasts are without a doubt THE BEST. She is also very knowledgeable about the area and has good suggestions of what to see and where to eat. The room we were in was comfortable and quiet.

Birna is amazing. Smart, witty and so accommodating. This was by far the best B&B in our 11 days of touring. Her breakfast is wonderful. Fresh squeezed OJ, a cheese platter, fresh baked goods and fresh fruit and then a full breakfast!

The spent one night a Devondell and enjoyed very much. Berna, the owner, was very nice and helpful. The place is very clean and comfortable. It is very close to the Salthill promenade where there are plenty restaurants and not far from Galway city center.

We enjoyed staying at Devondell. Berna was very welcoming, offering us tea or coffee upon arrival. She even offered to drive us to the city center in order to avoid us taking our car. The breakfast was fabulous. The bed was comfortable. Thank you Berna!

Lovely house and the double ensuite room was the most homely we have come across so far. Berna was very welcoming and only too happy to help with trip and restaurant recommendations. Her cooking was outstanding, from the delicious scones and cakes through to the sophisticated breakfasts. The walk into town was only around 15-20mins. Easily one of the best... More

We loved our stay at Devondell. As many have stated, Berna is a consummate hostess, and it shows in her delightful manner and in the elegant, yet whimsical decor. Berna welcomed us on our arrival, serving us tea and a delicious assortment of scones and sweets. Though we easily could have walked, she insisted on driving us into town after... More

“Two of our three rooms featured a single, twin-size bed. Though smaller, these cozy rooms also had bathrooms en-suite. These rooms would be perfect for a solo traveler or for an older child traveling with parents.”
