I like the tour of the house and a step into the past. The upkeep of the property was amazing and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.

Great shopping! While I shopped, i really went to get some ice-cream. Devon's House ice-cream is the best I've ever tasted. This year I tried the Jamaica 50th ice-cream and it was really great! This is a must everytime I visit Jamaica!

Had an excellent guided tour of the House. It is very well maintained with all its artifacts and gives an insight into the history of Kingston.

I was CRAVING soursop ice cream, and I walked to Devon House with a group of people I was with on a business trip, only to discover that there was NONE that day!!! Oh my, was I bummed. But that feeling was short lived as I quickly decided on something else and got the large wafer cone. Now after you collect your ice-cream, you have to go out into the sweltering Jamaican sun to eat it...so eat fast, because it melts fast!!! Did not do anything more at this attraction, so cannot comment. Sorry, ICE CREAM came first!!!

The ambiance at Devon house was lovely and the ice cream was amazing! The crowd there ranged from visitors, to students , to families to couples out to have a relaxing time and a chic place. I definitely recommend visiting Devon House on your trip to Jamaica!
