Oktoberfest 2008

Oktoberfest in Munich is world renowned, but not all of us can afford to jet out there for the festivities (especially in the wake of financial crisis and a new belt-tightening budget from the government), nor are some of us beer-loving enough to make that much effort for an expensive weekend away (flight, accommodation, beer tent entry fees etc).

In Dublin, Oktoberfest comes to us, free entry, and yes, we may lack the party atmosphere and the authenticity of München’s finest social gathering, but it will be a whole lot more pocket-friendly to us and our friends.

Some German friends who have been there in the last week so far had had given good feedback, and even if you don’t drink beer, there are a good selection of German food to keep you going. Not only that, they also have staff dressed in dirndl, so all in all, that has got to lend some feel of Oktoberfest to this!

The Oktoberfest 2008 runs until this Sunday 19th October at Georges Dock in IFSC, so just a couple of days left for you to check it out. I’ll be off there myself this weekend to see what the fuss is about. ;-)
