I got there early, shortly after they opened on the second day of this surprisingly long festival. As such, the party wasn't yet in full swing. The food and beer stands were open, but the entertainment tent was empty and quiet.
It was probably a good thing that none of the entertainment had fired up for the day, because I had made a vow to myself not to buy anything, including snacks and beer. I was immediately tested by the Haribo gummi cart and its staggering collection of chewy, Central-European treats...

Just like any festival, be careful of the prices, food and drinks were going for 6 Euro and up. Since
The festival runs until October 5 on George's Dock on the north bank of the River Liffey in Dublin, full schedule can be found on their website. When the entertainment tent is open, it looks like there are Bavarian bar games, costume contests, and other fun.
