Oktoberfest Event Coming To Dublin In September

Eatyard has announced details of its upcoming Oktoberfest event coming to Drumcondra from Sept 14– Oct 28, at The Bernard Shaw.

A range of German Beers and giant steins will be available on tap, along with some non-alcohol options, and Bavarian Winter Warmers.

German Food

Visitors can also try plenty of food options with a Bavarian twist such as hot pretzels, normal and vegan bratwursts, currywurst schnitzel burgers, and Bavarian Cheese and Charcuterie boards.

For those who really want to throw themselves into the spirit of Oktoberfest, there will be a number of German games including Stein-Holding competitions, Hasselhoff karaoke, Lederhösen Limbo, Blind Beer Tasting, DJs and more.

'Bavarian Cheer'

According to the Eatyard Instagram page, "Oktoberfest! Just as the summer ends we can start looking forward to that first sound of steins touching & beer spilling, a time when we can bring a dollop of Bavarian cheer to Drumcondra with a whole month dedicated to all things beer, cheese, pretzels and of course, bratwurst."


The Bernard Shaw

Eatyard first appeared at Bodytonic’s Beatyard Festival, Dun Laoghaire in 2016 as a group of street food vendors feeding festival goers.

In November of that year, Eatyard opened up a semi-permanent food market next to The Bernard Shaw in Portobello.

At this location, Eatyard welcomed trucks and stalls through the gates including vendors like Vish Shop, Kale and Coco, Wing It and Box Burger.

Eatyard Stage

Eatyard also hosted talks and demos where the group cooked with Levi Roots, while hosting 3FEs Colin Harmon and Mr. Holmes Bakery from San Francisco.

After 12 years in Portobello, The Bernard Shaw & Eatyard moved to Crossguns bridge, beside the Royal Canal in Drumcondra.
