London Airport. Which one?

We're passing through London at the end of August (post-Olympics) for a couple of days on our way back from Ireland. We leave London on a Wednesday at 9pm from Heathrow terminal 1. I have questions about airports for our arrival in the UK.

We're probably going to arrive Monday evening in London, spend two nights at a hotel, then leave Wednesday night. "We" is two adults and a 7 year old.
There are a number of airports we could arrive in London with flights from Ireland (we don't have our Irish itinerary yet, so we haven't chosen what city we'll be leaving from yet).
I was thinking that flying into Heathrow and leaving most of our luggage in storage before heading into London makes sense.
Or should we consider one of the other London airports? (This option precludes leaving our luggage in storage.) Luton, Stantead and Gatwick are options. London City is an option if we choose to fly from Dublin, but we're starting our trip in Dublin and may want to avoid looping back.
(And I just realized that we could avoid UK customs and immigration at an airport if we flew from Belfast, which we hadn't thought about visiting.)
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
