Dublin Accomadation

My wife and I are traveling with our 20 month old daughter. We are looking for a modest hotel close to the city centre. We plan to spend only 3 days in Dublin before we spend a few weeks in Italy. Any kid friendly ideas would be great.
Thanks in advance
Dan

www.ireland.ie/Result/Accommodation (choose B&B's in DUblin - then in the window below scroll down to Dublin City and 2km from city.

This is a great website, (I am from Dublin, and know the city well, I now live in Seattle). B&B's are more friendly than hotels, and less expensive, ALL are on a quick bus ride to downtown. You want to saya in the Ballsbrige, Donnybrook area as this is closest to downtown, Grafton Street, Trinity College, DON't stay right downtown unless you are in the Dublin 2 area, as this is a much nicer and safer part of Dublin, in other words the SOUTH side of the River Liffey. I found one that sounds lovely called 'Catherine Foy' another one 'Marble Hall' and 'Camelot' etc. etc.

Depending when you're going - and exactly how much additional services you might need - you could stay in the student accomodations of Trinity College. You can typically stay in universities during the summer months while students are gone.

I don't know if infants are permitted though. It's quite inexpensive and it's smack in the centre of Dublin.
