Irish MagiCon 2018


Event Details

So we are very excited about the line up for MagiCON 2018: Vanishing Inc, Ian Keable, Andi Gladwin, Greg Wilson, Jeff McBride and Larry Hass. What a weekend! We also have a host of Irish talent to enjoy.

A number of people have been asking about the schedule. See below. It’s packed to the brim!…. and there may be one or two more surprises (Please note that this is open to revision so don’t be surprised if it changes a little).


There are still a few rooms in the Hampton Hotel left. Please let us know if you have any problems getting a booking. You can only book by phone on +353 (0)1 668 0995.


We’ve tried to balance the timing so that if people really want to head off on Sunday evening they can do so and still get home for bedtime without FOMO, and equally, we’ve tried to make sure that Sunday is full enough that people will want to stick around into the wee hours and make the very most of the whole weekend. Nearly all the acts are staying Sunday night.
