Dublin 2019 – An Irish Worldcon

The CCD, Thursday 15th August - Monday 19th August 2019

Dublin 2019 – An Irish Worldcon. The 77th World Science Fiction Convention, the longest running SF convention in the world.

Ireland has a rich tradition of storytelling. It is a land famous for its ancient myths and legends, great playwrights, award-winning novelists, innovative comics artists, and groundbreaking illustrators. It has a well established science fiction and fantasy fandom, and active gaming scene. Worldcon has lots of activities for attendees – multiple programming tracks, Exhibits, Events, an Art show and Dealers' Room. All these activities together make up the Worldcon experience, and they are open to anyone with a full attending membership or a full day admission for the relevant day of the convention.

Dublin 2019 programming will feature an exciting and varied array of sessions that explore the depth and breadth of a world class science fiction convention, delving into speculative fiction, art, comics, music, and gaming with a special focus on Irish themes. From the fantastic to the scientific, the daily schedule will consist of fun and engaging topics that dig into the past, propelling us into countless futures. Participants will be smart and articulate and the programme will celebrate the best of what Worldcon has to offer. Not to mention The Hugo Awards, ‘Hugos‘, leading awards for excellence in the field of science fiction and fantasy, which are awarded each year by the World Science Fiction Society, at that year's Worldcon.
