There's a really cool Oktoberfest taking place in Westport this weekend

Trip west, anyone?

Oktoberfest West is in its third year, and this one promises to be better than all those that came before it.

The event is a collaboration between Jack & Eddie's, a renowned pork and bacon company created in Westport, and Mescan Brewery.

In an event that has grown substantially over the past two years, Oktoberfest West will be running over two days in the grounds of Westport House at Gracy’s Bar on October 6 and 7, 2018.

Jack & Eddie's themselves will be providing bratwurst on the day, with all of their pork sourced locally and there will be beer, lederhosen, Bavarian music agus craic for all those who attend.

It will be kicking off at 1pm each day and run through until 11pm that night and traditional Oktoberfest dress is encouraged.

Live music will be played on both days with Mélia frontman Ciaran O'Malley (who featured as the JOE Song of the Day a short while back) playing on Sunday evening to round out what should be a brilliant weekend.

Even the lads from Foil Arms and Hog popped down for a look last year... weekend away in Westport anyone?
