Dublin neighborhood or hotel help

We will be staying in Dublin for 3-4 days before (or after) a cruise in May. We are two senior citizens who deal well with public transport and Uber/Lyft; however, walking long distances is a thing of the past. We are not big museum people, but like being near restaurants and pubs. We often stay in B&B's in Europe and have used AirBnb without complaint.

We'd certainly consider a well located, well priced hotel or B&B, but I'm thinking the prices are gonna be sky high. Please feel free to recommend any you can think of. I'd also appreciate convenient neighborhoods for which I can look for an AirBnb.

thanks!

Try Harding hotel by Christchurch or Maldron hotel in Smithfield square. The Luas tram is wonderful. Buswell's hotel is also a fav of ours.

In May you might consider the B&B offering at Trinity College.

Yes, we looked at Harding's and it looked great. UNFORTUNATELY, the Ed Sherran concerts are in town during out visit (May 17 to 20); hence, many of the hotels were booked up and ALL had inflated their prices two-three times as much a normal.

We ended up booking up at the Travelodge Stephan's Green. STILL a damn site more expensive than it should be, but no alternatives at this point.

I highly recommend Wynn Hotel in Dublin. We stayed there 2 years ago and it is very convent to everything. Public transportation is very close by if you need it. We went with the B&B option and the breakfast is great!
