Dublin & Galway for college students?

Some friends and I will be traveling through Ireland for a week in mid-March. We're going through a travel group, so we have a tour guide to show us around. We'll have 3 days each in Dublin (by St. Steven's Green) and Galway (near Salthill?), and we'll be on our own for meals, nighttime activities, and possibly a few afternoons. Our transportation away from the tour guide will be limited to walking and city buses. Any recommendations for good (& not super pricey) places to eat, fun/not incredibly sketchy clubs to go to, and things to do within the two cities? Thanks!

check over at The Thorn Tree on Lonely Planet's website. that forum attracts a younger crowd than here at Fodor's.

Galway: (lower) Salthill is actually within walking distance (about 1-km) of the 'Latin Quarter' and Eyre Square. You should be able to find a Pub that serves an ample midday meal ('carvery lunch'). I often stop at Garvey's Hotel for a light lunch (Seafood Chowder, for example) between Buses.

There's a Pub called AnPucin on Forster St almost directly across from Galway Tourist Office: 'live' music every night.

In Dublin, I like Madigan's on Middle Earl Street for its carvery lunch. It's an original, although founder James Madigan, whom I had the pleasure to meet back in 1952, was from Lahinch in County Clare.
