“nice little oasis in Kingston”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Devon house is a must stop for visitors to Kingston. it is a pleasant park with a 19th century great house and food shops and restaurants that sell a variety of real Jamaican food such as meat and vegetable patties, local pastries, jerk chicken, and Jamaican ice cream with local fruit flavors. There are some craft shops on the compound where you can get gift items. Tours of the great house are available. This a nice chill out spot that screens you from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of Kingston. Within walking distance of the Bob Marley museum too!

“A very nice getaway in Kingston”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Devon house is a beautiful estate in the middle of Kingston. I took the tour of the house and the guide was very nice and knowledgable. I also had lunch at the Grogg Shoppe and it was wonderful. The food and service were great! It's nice to get an ice cream and hang out in the courtyard though the shops don't have much to offer.

All in all a great way to spend an afternoon in Kingston.

“Well worth a visit - lots of variety and good quality offer”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Not well signed and even when inside not really obvious what is on offer.

Lovely small nice shops, cafes and restaurants with good food and lovely interesting buildings.

Really undersold.
