I've never been to the real Oktoberfest in Munich, but the Docklands Oktoberfest last year was very enjoyable. Beer, delicious pork-based food, tacky but enjoyable music... what's not to like? Here's what Docklands have to say about this year's Oktoberfest:
"The Erdinger Oktoberfest will take place in Dublin's George's Dock over a ten day period from Thursday 30th Sept to Sunday 10th Oct 2010.There is plenty to do for all, from having a Bavarian lunch during the week, to a great Bavarian night out with friends."
Be there or be sober and hungry.
