"The perfect holiday home."
This holiday home was perfect for the three nights we stayed. It was ideally situated for visiting Dublin and the Wicklow area to the south. The very friendly landlord had thought of and provided everything - nothing was missing. The night-time views over Dublin were superb and the deer roaming wild in the garden were an added pleasure. There were supermarkets and an excellent fish and chip shop within a five minute drive and, for shopaholics, the Dundrum Shopping Centre is only ten minutes away as is Johnny Foxes, surely one of the best dining pubs in Ireland. We can thoroughly recommend Willowfield.

"Out of town hillside delight"
The house was a perfect size for myself and family along with the parents. (6)
The location was close to where we needed to be but would suit those looking for a rural but close to Dublin experience. Beds comfortable and sunroom a lovely way to wind down the day with views of Dublin. At night the whole vista of dublin city lights up. Suitable for family types and country lovers.

"Best of both worlds"
Willowell catered for all our needs.We were a family of four with a teenage daughter and son who have travelled all over Ireland and to find a house with three double en-suite bedrooms is unusual and most welcome with no fighting over who gets the big room.The house was well stocked with all you would need to start your holiday from tea,coffee,milk and bread to all the cleaning products that we sometimes find lacking elsewhere.When we arrived the satellite TV wasn't working and while my son was sorting this out Brian went and borrowed a TV to make sure we weren't without.Normal service was resumed with plenty channels to chose from and a supply of DVDs if you fancy a night in.The house lies next to the motorway and allows easy access to the rest of the country but was surrounded by fields abundant with local wildlife and was very quiet and peaceful.There are wonderful views from the conservatory and decking and even better if you head up the hill from the house to the forest park which is ideal for walking and cycling.Lamb Doyle's pub is within walking distance but be careful as there is no pavement fro part of the way.Well worth ther trip for a really warm welcome from Ken the barman.Supermarkets are a ten minute drive as is Ballinteer House pub for a good meal.Irleand's biggest indoor shopping centre is ten minutes away at Dundrum where there are plenty of shops and a cinema.Dublin city centre is easily reached by the local tram service(The LUAS) which you can catch at the park and ride at Balally next to Dundrum centre(follow the blue park and ride signs). Willowell offers and excellent rural setting with easy access to Dublin and beyond and would recommend to families or groups of friends for a great break in Ireland.
