1.) Westin Gaslamp Quarter:
For any unattached readers looking to be thrust in the middle of San Diego’s most vibrant Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations, the Gaslamp Quarter is the place to be. The Westin Gaslamp Quarter is perfectly situated in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter, and offers accommodations ideal for placing anyone young and single in the epicenter of all things festive. Some of the biggest parties and events take place a stone’s throw away, including ShamRock 2013. This “rock-ous” block party draws around 20,000 partiers each year as the Gaslamp is transformed into San Diego’s own version of an Irish hillside and outdoor pub with 80,000 square feet of astro-turf. ShamRock 2013 will feature live bands, go-go dancers, traditional Irish food and most importantly, plenty of green beer to go around.
2.) Harvey’s Motel:
Perfect for the young single-person on a budget, Harvey’s Motel promises a comfortable stay right by San Diego State University. Harvey’s Motel won’t break the bank but still bases their guests close to many of the festivities. The St. Patrick’s Day Hooleyfest is bound to be a wild and hopping event and is hosted by Hooley’s Irish Pub and Grill. Sure to be populated by many of the scantily clad college co-eds who live in the neighborhood, this party gets underway at 4pm and will rage on until midnight. Patrons get to experience live Irish-themed bands, traditional bagpipers and great discounts on food and beer. This year, Hooley’s Irish Pub and Grill will be hosting equally awesome parties at two different locations, and the event charge includes shuttle rides between the two hot-spots. The hosts have their guests’ safety on the forefront of their minds as they provide free rides back to the hotel.
3.) Inn at the Park:
For anyone a “wee” bit apprehensive about the crowds and bustling nightlife of Downtown San Diego, but still wanting to salute the Irish and celebrate the holiday in style, check into the Inn at the Park San Diego. Nestled between Hillcrest and Balboa Park, this haven will provide relaxation for when you need it most in a spacious, recently renovated suite, while still putting visitors in the proximity of fun St. Patrick’s Day events. One of the most popular local events is the 33rd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival, which takes place all day on March 16th at the famous nearby Balboa Park. Catch the parade in the morning, which is made up of 120 participants ranging from bands to Irish-themed floats to classic cars - all decked out in the trademark St. Patrick’s Day green. The festival will take place later in the afternoon and is sure to appeal to 20 and 30-somethings by providing plenty of live entertainment, food and two beer gardens.
