Jose Manuel Barroso made the remarks after a meeting with the Taoiseach Enda Kenny and the Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore at Dublin Castle.
He said the "doomsday scenario" of a break-up of the countries using the euro currency had not come to pass.
He added the crisis in Europe had now entered a new phase, where restoring confidence was the key priority.
"We are in a better situation today," he said. "We have shown the nay-sayers that we are willing to do all that is necessary to ensure the stability of the single currency."
