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

What can I say? When you book into B and B's you're not quite sure what you will end up with. I am so thrilled we booked with Berna. She is lovely, kind, has a great sense of humour and has a passion for what she does. her place is located within walking distance to both Lower Salthill and Galway... More

My three daughters and I stayed at Devondell for one night in late September, 2013. We were warmly welcomed by our hostess, Berna Kelly, and were immediately charmed by her easy laugh and delightful sense of humor! After getting us settled in our three rooms (one double and two singles), Berna drove us to the edge of Galway City –... More

There is little I can add to the glowing tributes of previous TA contributors. Berna had emailed me months before saying "not to expect anything too special". She is simply too modest. The accommodation was comfortable and met all our needs. As others comment, it is the other bits that make this B&B a must if you are staying in... More

Staying at Devondell was like visiting family. Berna is a gracious host, and gave us candid advice on attractions and restaurants. The room was comfortable - the only iffy part was the shower, because the water was difficult to control and the water pressure was weak. The hotel is a bit of a hike into the city center of Galway,... More

I am glad you enjoyed your stay but regret the issues you encountered with the shower. It may have been due to random intermittent works on nearby water mains during the summer. These works have since been completed and everything is back to normal. Every good wish, Berna More

Wow, what can we say about this B&B and Berna, except that our 3 day stay with her made it so very special for us. Berna treated us like family from the minute we walked into her beautiful B&B. She told us where to go, what to see and how to get around. Berna is a very beautiful person, her... More

Our party of four stayed with Berna in early September for 2 nights. After an excellent dinner recommendation from Berna on our way into Galway, "Morans The Weir" we arrived later than planned. Berna greeted us at the door and after settling into our rooms, calmed us down with a special Irish "treat" as she sat and talked with us... More

Berna was a great hostess. She greeted us with a very cozy sitting room with fire going and offered Irish coffee and tea. She assisted us with dinner plans since we were arriving fairly late. We woke up to a beautiful table set with everything you can imagine for breakfast including cereals, fresh fruits, pastries, baked fruit, yogurt, as well... More
