Oktoberfest Dublin

I went along to Oktoberfest in George’s Dock in the IFSC on Friday evening after work. I’ve never been to it in Dublin before so I was looking forward to seeing what all the fuss was about.

We went straight into the main tent to avoid the rain and get a drink. You have two options for beer: German Erdinger “Fischer’s Hell” or “Weizenbier” (wheatbeer) and can get either a pint or a stein (which has 2 pints in each one). The steins cost €12, so €6 a pint is quite expensive, even by Dublin standards.

In the tent, there are several rows of long tables and chairs, a stage and 2 bars. Some of the long tables were removed once the weather outside got bad and they need more standing space in there.

On the stage there was a German band that played German folk songs, thankfully they didn’t play for too long and eventually, they just played your usual pub pop/dance songs.
