Devondell was the best B&B we've ever stayed at and we didn't want to leave. Berna's hospitality is top notch, she is extremely professional, informative and has a very cute witty sense of humor. She seemed to know everything about Galway and always pointed us in the right direction. The B&B it'self is decorated stylishly and has a country but...

Devondell is situated in a seaside suburb of Galway called Salthill at the end of a cul-de-sac. However it is within easy walking distance of the Salthill township which has some good restaurants. There is off street parking too. Berna provided a warm welcome with tea and cake upon our arrival and made us feel at home. We also had...

Stayed 2 nights in June. Superb hospitality. Location not too grand, on cul de sac. The finest breakfast we have ever had, the fruit table and scones were out of this world. Rooms clean and tidy, smallish bathroom. Would return.

This B&B is amazing! Berna was so lovely and made me feel very welcome, the rooms were beautifully presented and spotless. I woke up the next morning to the smell of cinnamon. Berna warned me the breakfast was "simple" but instead it turned out to the best breakfast I've ever had (sorry mum). There is something for everyone, and lots...

We enjoyed two nights here. We stayed in a different room each night. The first had a queen bed and large bathroom with a deep wonderful tub. The second had twin beds with a small bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the rooms very clean. The breakfasts were exceptional - homemade raspberry muffins that were fabulous. Our host had a...

For our quick one week trip of Ireland we stayed mostly at B & B's. This was the best one by a long shot. Berna makes the B&B what it is. After flying to Ireland all night and then driving across the Island we arrived tired and hungry so she provided a wonderful afternoon "tea" that left us stuffed. The...

My husband and I stayed with Berna Kelly last week - what a fantastic find! The B & B was truly the highlight of the trip. Devondell is located on a quite cul-de-sac about 10 minutes' walk from the heart of Galway. When we checked in, she couldn't have been more welcoming, offering us tea or coffee and "biscuits" and...

Wonderful place to stay while visiting Salthill. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. The price was 45 euro for each person.

Although Devondell was a bit of a walk to the town center, it was well worth the walk. My husband and I felt like it was staying in a storybook cottage. Berna is such a warm, lovely hostess who made our best breakfast of the trip. Her attention to detail was clear throughout our stay, and I would definitely return...

I was on a mission to book a room at Devondell since I read great reviews on here and in Frommer's. We weren't disappointed! Berna's house is so cute, and she's a wonderful and knowledgeable host. I also can't say enough about the breakfasts. We were greeted with tea and wonderful pastries the night we arrived. Berna was incredibly helpful...

“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.”
