accommodation in dublin

We are staying in Dublin from June 5 to June 9 - does anyone have suggestions for two seniors who like to be able to walk to most attractions?

Sandra, i checked my reservations receipts and it did NOT show any "breakfast". So i will say no. Im not sure if its an option, so if you decide to stay with them, i would ask. The clerk i chatted with was more than willing to help me in my travels in dublin. However, they do have a "bar/restaurant" in the basement and there is a restaurant attached on the corner and is accessible thru the hotel lobby. I never at in the basement restaurant. The corner restaurant had a "european style buffet" breakfast. Yogurt, cereal, oj, milk and pastries. they had some bacon too (yum) and and some other things. according to my receipts, i paid about 6 to 8 Euros (w/o tip) for breakfast and i remember buying something from the menu too just to try some of the local food. Yes the room was clean. The bathroom was unique to me. It was ALL tiled and no tub, just a large shower. It looked like it was designed for the handicapped since it was sooo open. Also, i liked it since you could "hose down" the whole bathroom to clean it or you didnt have to worry about the floor or walls getting wet. I like simple and easy cleaning! happy trails.
