City Breaks


#1

I’m off to secure three points for TFK AFC but I need your assistance in suggesting a suitable city break destination in the meantime. The city should be:

  • Somewhere in Europe;
  • Not completely freezing in February;
  • No more than a couple of hours away via air transport;
  • Accessible from Dublin Airport on a Friday or Saturday and returning on a Sunday or Monday;
  • Decent;
  • Not necessarily a capital city as being one of the northern hemisphere’s foremost project financiers I’ve been to most of these cities already.

Your assistance would be appreciated.


#2

Dusseldorf or Munich or Bilbao or San Sebastian would be my recommendations.


#3

Not much craic travelling by yourself pal.


#4

Bologna.


#5

Amsterdam is the only decent destination for @Bandage .

Not too many cars about to frighten the poor chap, plenty of bikes to rent, opportunity to take in a football match & ride a few brazzers with his monthly bonus.

You’re forgetting he lived there.

Actually Lisbon too. Very nice city.


#8

Case closed, meet up with old friends & get that treasured discount rate good customers have earned.


#9

Anyone going with you @Bandage?


#10

Lisbon-planning another trip there early March. Lovely city. Or else Seville. San Sebastian as already proposed.


#11

Lisbon, Munich, Bruges, Brussels. And none of them have cunting rugby teams, so you won’t be plagued with hooray Henrys for the weekend.


#12

Antwerp. Fantastic brazzer scene there


#13

Good call, Belgian food and beer is fantastic though, might not be to @Bandage’s taste.


#14

As long as it doesn’t rain.


#15

Don’t go in April so.

Thanks chaps. Was looking at Bilbao and San Sebastian this afternoon as it happens. I think Aer Lingus fly to Bilbao on something like Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and San Sebastian’s a 90 minute drive from there. Any other travel options from Dublin?

Seville definitely interests me? Flight options?

Lisbon is a sacred city for Celtic supporters. I want to experience something new, however.

I didn’t think much of Brussels myself.

Keep the suggestions coming, please. Do you fellas usually book everything separately yourself or use a site offering a complete package?

might i humbly suggest Trier, germany’s oldest city and home of haribo. located on the banks of the mosel, near enough to go to a kaiserslautern match and be a real football snob by espousing the virtues of second division german football over other first divisions. also, you can visit luxembourg and sample the darts league there which i hear is bucket list worthy. you can dine in the irish times recommended wein haus and for kultur you can visit karl marx haus


#18

Antwerp, get some beer into you.


#19

Thought Ryanair flew to some Bilbao regional airport. They probably fly to somewhere near Biarritz too which isn’t far away from San Sebastian anyway.

Seville is a lovely spot too.

San Sebastien is a 90 minute drive from Biarritz but I don’t think that’s much use to Bandage. Fly directly to Seville with Ryanair. Fuck driving if you’re going for 2 nights.
