Does anyone have experience with a pub crawl, pub tour in Dublin?

Galway, Kenmare & Dublin

I am heading to these three cities with two other girls. We are all 50 (were sorority sisters in college), love to travel actually there for a birthday trip.

What would you suggest to do and eat in Galway. We are staying at The House Hotel.

Then off to The Park Kenamare for two nights. And then to Dublin, staying at the Westbury.

I have been looking at the list of Dublin restaurants...what would you suggest as a special/fun birthday? The Greenhouse?

Food Trucks

What are the best desert food trucks? I don't want an ice cream or cupcake truck but rather one that could serve all sorts of sweets. I know that there is the sweets truck but wondering if someone has a suggestion for any others.

Paris with two 16 year old girls

I forgot to add that I have Les Cocottes and Cafe Constant-ready for a casual walk in.
Has anyone gone to Angelina's for lunch? We will be at the Louvre and besides Cafe Marly-will need lunch. The girls are dying for the chocolate at Angelina's so maybe kill two birds with one stone?

Paris with two 16 year old girls

I am going to Paris the first week in April. Another mom (we live in LA) and I are taking our daughters for their 16th birthdays. Both girls are well traveled.
I am looking for fun, somewhat hip or interesting places for lunch & dinner. We are staying in the 7th and would prefer not to travel too much for meals.
Here are the dinner picks so far
George at the Pompidou-really for the fun view and vibe. First night in so we will barely remember the food-total jet lag...just trying to stay awake until about 11 at night.

Le Relais @ Plaza Athenne

Le 404


What about le Clos des Gourmets?
would love some other suggestions to fill the remaining two nights.

one night in Prague and Budapest

I just read this post and thanks for all the info. I will be going to Prague for three nights and then to Budapest for four. Our family of six includes four "kids" ages 21, 18, 17 and 14. We live in LA and for lack of a better description...healthy foodies. I love the idea of the boat for a meal in Prague. The trick is to find something with a view, a bit of energy but interesting non touristy food.
I have started a list for Prague and would love any suggestions and thoughts-
