Welcome to Akumakon

Akumakon is an Anime, Manga and Japanese Culture event that happens in, NUI Galway. Being one of the biggest events like this in the West of Ireland, we aim to provide a fun-filled weekend for our attendees every January. Events we hold include cosplay events, video game tournaments, Japanese culture events, nerd culture-related events, a pub quiz, special guests, a trade hall and performances from many talented people. In 2016, Akumakon experienced its most successful year to date. We were privileged to welcome over 950 attendees through our doors and raised almost €2,800 for charities.

This year we hope we will bring you just as much fun and excitement as last year. Along with Eric Stuart and Aya Ikeda and even more guests yet to be announced, we here at Akumakon are sure we’ll have something for everyone to enjoy.

All the best,
The Akumakon 2017 Committee
