Octocon, the National Irish Science Fiction Convention, is a weekend celebration of our favourite stories from books, comics, TV, films and games; from science fiction, fantasy, horror and beyond; attracting artists, writers, film-makers and fans from across the human sphere of influence. The first Octocon was held in 1990 with Terry Pratchett as our first Guest of Honour. Over the years  some of our guests of honour have included Anne McCaffrey, JG Jones, Tanith Lee, Mike Carey, George R.R. Martin, Gail Simone, Rhianna Pratchett, Pat Cadigan and Colleen Doran. For one weekend in October, we gather together to talk about all the wonders we have read and watch over the year; to share our favorite moments from book, TV, comics and films; to delve into the unsung genres and curious concepts of Speculative Fiction; to take part in workshops, and listen to panel discussions and charming guest speakers; to see what ‘must haves’ are in the Trade Hall; to experience the fun which is Octocon.

Octocon is going to Croke Park!

The home of Irish sports is the new home for Ireland’s National Science Fiction Convention. The next Octocon will take place on October 15-16, 2022 in Croke Park.
