Without seeing the actual car you're looking at, these Accords have a great reputation for reliability and comfort. That is of course if they're serviced properly and regularly. That sounds like very low mileage for the age so make sure you check its history on Cartell.ie.
The 1.8-litre petrol engine is the best option, but make sure it's a manual gearbox. SE trim is well equipped with loads of safety devices as standard.
One of the only downsides is that the official Honda parts and servicing can be expensive, but there's always the option to go to an independent garage.
If you want to send us the link to the actual car you're looking at online we'll see if there's anything else we can comment on.
