This was my second time staying with Bernie and I would certainly come back again. Willow House is very comfortable, and the breakfast menu is fresh and varied. Getting back and forth to the city is easy on the bus, but there are also good restaurants a short walk away. Bernie was so welcoming and helpful.

This was my fourth stay at Willow House. As always, I was greeted like an old friend by landlady Bernie. I was staying with friends for a week in Dublin and nothing was too much trouble for this lovely landlady. I was shown to my 'usual' room and given an extra blanket to make sure that I was comfortable, it... More

I spent another truly enjoyable week at Willow House at the end of January with two of my daughters and a friend. This incredible B&B cannot be praised highly enough - due in no small part to Bernie - Dublin's GREATEST landlady! Nothing is too much trouble for her - friendly, welcoming, an excellent cook and a cracking sense of... More

I had booked a double room with almost a months notice for the night before the all ireland final. The was confirmed by the b&b. On the evening before our planned stay I received a message from the management saying there was no room available. No explanation was given. This left us arriving back in ireland from abroad with no... More

Very homey, quaint B & B. Friendly owner and the place is very clean and well cared for. Our room was wonderfully cozy and comfortable with all you need to be comfortable when you are away from home. Breakfast was excellent, Bus stop right outside, very short walking distance to cafes and pubs and a little convenience store. We could... More

I have stayed at Willow House before with friends, this time I introduced my husband to this lovely bed and breakfast in Dublin. We stayed two nights during a tour around Ireland, and once again Bernadette went that extra mile to look after us. We were greeted as old friends and shown to a beautiful double room on the ground... More

This is a great B&B, right on the bus route from the airport and into the city so very handy. We stayed 3 nights and loved it. We had asked for a family room as there was 3 of us, all adults. Upon arrival Bernie offered the third adult, a room for themselves which was wonderful. It gave us all... More

I stayed here for my first two nights in Ireland. The host was very accommodating when my plane arrived a lot earlier in the morning than I thought it would. She even fed me breakfast that morning, even though she didn't have to. She had a fantastic breakfast menu, which I appreciated. Also, the place looked so pretty from the... More

We booked a double room at the Willow's but at the very moment there were 3 of us coming. The host was very flexible and could have us all in a very coisy voilet room on the top floor. The room was warm, clean, had coffee and tea bags. The breakfast - wow, the breakfast was absolutely amazing! One can... More
