The original Bavarian Oktoberfest, held in Munich Germany since 1810, is one of the most famous festivals in the world, with over six million people attending each year. For the first time ever, the original Paulaner Oktoberfest will come from Germany to Dublin, giving Irish people the chance to experience the authentic Oktoberfest festival. A marquee - representative of that in the Oktoberfest in Munich - and German markets, as well as 24 authentic Oktoberfest barmaids will descend on Georges Dock for some German fun, food and entertainment and authentic Bavarian beer. The traditional German market will feature over thirty German speciality food producers and German traders, who are all travelling to Dublin for the Paulaner Oktoberfest. Visitors will be introduced to the very best of Bavarian food and specialities from sausages, meat, pastries, Käsespätzle (cheese noodles) to mountain cheese and ginger bread hearts. Learn to sing a yodel or dance a polka, as traditional Bavarian musicians, Die Alpen-show, will also play throughout the ten-day event. The first Paulaner Oktoberfest comes to the Dublin Docklands, running from 9th - 19th October and general admission is free.
