it is a cultural and historic attraction that offers a variety of places to relax and unwind. Devon House ice-cream is quite famous for its offerings as well as Sweet Dreams. Have a spa day or just bring a basket and picnic on the lawns.

This is the number 1 spot in Kingston Jamaica, possibly the world, for Ice-cream. Great for a family outing, picnic, or just a stroll. Take a tour of the Great House as well..Lovely

beautiful place, nice and clean. we went mostly because everybody talk about this place and its "famous" ice cream..which was really nice.but not from the other world....expensive if you are on budget , but i guess it was ok as it was part of "places to visit in Kingston".

I always go to Devon house when I come to Jamaica. The flavors are always great. The environment is pretty relaxing to me (if you don't go when it is busy). The lines are ridiculously long but since the new section has opened it, it moves a lot quicker. The servers move pretty quickly. On the day I went though,... More

Save your time and avoid the tour of the house. It's underwhelming and you can read a few paragraphs online to get the history. Spend your time walking yourself around the beautiful grounds. It can be fun, it can be romantic, it can be whatever you want. Good restaurant and bar on property. Island's best ice cream. Come hang out... More

Colonial house turned part museum part food court. Arrive after dark and pick up patties from the bakery and have a seat in the garden (if you can find a spot) Locals come here with their children to pick nick, play and meet friends. A great place to be to get a feeling of the local life

Top of the visit is touring Devon's House where tourist guides are as good as it gets, the house is astonishing; finally the top of the day was... More
