Quoting SeansasLCY (Thread starter):
Hamburg (Lübeck)

only if you want to see Ryanair all the time. Not much traffic going on there in LÜBECK. Because Lübeck is FAR away from Hamburg, and not even a part from Hamburg. Lübeck is a city on its own...
But the City of Lübeck is pretty nice, you can spend a day there easily...

The city is a short ride away, nice enough. If you hire a car you could go to Blarney castle.

Dublin

Great city, lots to see and do, not far from the airport.

Boring as anything, there's some good photography spots, but absolutely nothing to shoot. The airport is in the middle of nowhere, so unless you hire a car and drive about 20/30 miles there is nothing to see either.

Newquay

Not much spotting wise, but Newquay itself is only a short way from the airport, a bit tacky for some, but you can have a walk along the beach or if you head inland go to the Eden Project.

Aarhus looks like a nice city to visit. For an example photo, visit: http://www.destination360.com/europe/denmark/aarhus.php

Dublin's pretty good, didn't much like Cork. Belfast is meant to be pretty good.

Lubeck's meant to be good, and it looks great.

I liked Glasgow (easy to get from PIK to central Glasgow by train).

I suppose the most obvious one to visit of all in your list is Dublin.

I think i might fly STN-SNN-MAN-LCY on FR and VG, so i can fly on a F50 and VLM, the FR legs are just for the sake of flying somewhere different.

What about STN-DUB-SNN-MAN-LCY, adding in the DUB-STN route on an EI A330, it's cheap and a nice flight on a widebody.
