Enjoy Oktoberfest in Dublin

Travelers who are unable to make it to Germany for this year's Oktoberfest may be interested to learn that Dublin will be hosting some Bavarian-themed celebrations of its own next month.

Paulaner Oktoberfest kicks off on 8th October 2009, with events taking place around the Docklands are of the city.

Attended by around 70,000 people last year, it is one of the highlights of the Irish social calendar and those looking for a combination of beer and top entertainment will not be disappointed.

A large marquee will be erected for the occasion, as well as a traditional Bavarian market featuring speciality food.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to see German band Mostland Sturmer as they take to the stage to entertain the crowds.
Meanwhile, those planning a backpacking jaunt to Dublin will also find plenty of attractions to explore, including the famous Guinness storehouse, which has been the home of Ireland's most famous export for more than 250 years.
