Easter Weekend problems - Ireland or France?

I am planning a trip to either Ireland or France and will land in either Dublin or Paris on Good Friday. We will therefore be visiting either country over the course of Easter weekend. Does anyone know what kinds of problems this might pose in terms of businesses, hotels, B&Bs, restaurants, etc. being open? I am thinking Easter Saturday won't be a problem, but Easter and Easter Monday might? If anyone has any experience traveling to one of these countries during this time period, your advice would be most appreciated!

I can't imagine that hotels or B&B's would be closed.

No alcohol can be sold in general on Good Friday in the Republic of Ireland.

When I've been in Paris during Easter I didn't notice much, if anything, different than any other time (except Christmas).
