Having heard of the noise problems of staying close to the enter of town, I explored hotels a bit removed, but in walking distance, from the city center. The Schoolhouse Hotel intrigued me because it was a former schoolhouse converted into hotel rooms and had received good reviews on Trip Advisor. I'm so glad we chose to stay here. It's within a 15-20-min walk to the center of town (Trinity College, etcl), and is also accessible to areas closer to the coast (slightly longer, but doable, walks). The rooms are comfortable. My only (very minor) issue is that there were no dressers with drawers; so, t-shirts and the like had to be stashed elsewhere. Again, no big deal. I would stay here again in a heartbeart. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. The surrounds along the Grand Canal make for a great walk as well.
