I spent two nights in Galway in order to visit the city and the region, and since the first moment I arrived Berna was the perfect hostess, very warm and kind, always ready to help and assist. The breakfast was absolutely superb, the best I've ever had since I'm living in Ireland. I will definitely go back.

Even from very early on and when booking, Berna was extremely mindful and genuine through her email communication with us. She was concerned about traffic and parking as Galway would be flooded with crowds during the races. She made suggestions about car insurance, a GPS and other misc. details helpful to anyone traveling from America. When we arrived, she greeted...

I don't often write reviews as you can tell, but I feel compelled to explain to the TA community what a terrific experience staying at Devondell in Galway was. My wife and I spent three great nights there earlier this month. While the location, in adjacent Salthill, is not in Galway's city center, this became a positive in my opinion....

Berna is an absolute delight and very helpful! There are so many yummy options for breakfast, and Berna helped us so much! We were in Galway to see a set of family members that we had never met before, and all we had was a name and number. Our cousin called for us at the B & B, and Berna...

Where to start? Is it with the unsurpassed breakfast or the delightful host, Berna? In terms of overall quality of breakfast, Devondell is unbeatable; fresh fruit, scones, muesli, cheese, the list goes on. Berna is wonderfully hospitable and eager to help. It is like walking into a room and discovering an old friend. The Irish coffee in celebration of the...

Berna, the host/owner of the Devondell, is the perfect person for the job! She is incredibly charming, helpful with local suggestions, and a great cook! I was a bit suspect at first as it's in a residential area and then noticed this location was par for the course in Galway. The area is super quiet and just a few minutes...

Not only does the Devondell have an excellent location, charming character, and a fantastic breakfast menu, but the true gem here is Berna herself! My husband and I had traveled Ireland for 2 weeks and Berna's was our last stop. Let's just say she made it TRULY hard to leave Ireland! She was such a warm and welcoming host who...

We were so well taken care of at Devondell! Berna offered us refreshments as soon as we arrived, but we were in a hurry to get out and about - maybe an error since we missed an opportunity to chat and enjoy her goodies! The breakfast she served the next morning was awesome, beautifully presented and perfectly prepared. Our room...

Our stay at Berna's Devondell was perfect. We didn't have a car, but the location was central enough that we could easily walk for 20 minutes to great shopping and eating. Berna was a wonderful host, giving us information on the day tours and even doing the bookings for us. The tours either came to the door or stopped a...

Our stay at Devondell was amazing. Berna is a perfect owner and her kindness is really rare. Entering into her B&B you find a very elegant but warm and sweet atmosphere. The breakfast and the preparation of the table for breakfast is unbeliveble. The choice is wide and food is home-made. You can't miss it! Rooms are very clean and...

“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.”
