We have grandstand tickets for the St. Patrick's Day Parade in 2013 at this location, but are wondering what would be a convenient hotel to stay at so we can walk to the grandstand. Preferably a hotel on the same side of the street as the grandstand, unless you think crossing the street before the parade is no problem. It doesn't have to be a low budget hotel, but not the top-of-the-line 5-star either. Something in-between that hopefully is near restaurants and some shopping and convenient to get to transportation-wise. Thanks for suggestions, we have never been to Dublin before.
