About Octocon

Octocon, the National Irish Science Fiction Convention, is a weekend celebration of the weird and wonderful, attracting artists, writers, film-makers and fans from across the human sphere of influence. Running since 1990, where our first Guest of Honour was Terry Pratchett, some of our guests have included  JG Jones, Tanith Lee, Mike Carey and George R.R. Martin.

For one weekend every October, we delve into the unsung genres and curious concepts of Speculative Fiction, with workshops, panel discussions and charming guest speakers.
