FUN FACTWhen Jamaican millionaire George Stiebel built Devon House in Kingston, he probably didn’t imagine it becoming one of Jamaica’s top historic landmarks, but also, according to National Geographic, one of the best places in the world to eat ice cream. Try a range of unique flavours at I Scream (including beer-flavoured), the Caribbean Victorian mansion’s ice cream parlour!
