Hi, I’m Bran, the IrishFurries mascot - and thanks for visiting our website! We are an ever-growing growing group of creative artists, costumers, and fans of anthropomorphised animals.
We have a large online social community and have events mainly hosted in Dublin, Belfast, Cork, and Galway!
Our meets are for Furries who live in Ireland and Northern Ireland, but international visitors are also welcome to join our community and our events.
Hope to speak to you soon!
When are the meets?
We aim to meetup at least once a month. Dates and times vary depending on the local events / conventions that may be taking place that month.
Where are the meets?
Each event has a designated meeting point that will be available on the event information page, usually a well-known location, such as the Dublin Spire.
How much do meets cost, is there an entry fee?
There is no membership fee or charge to attend the meets. However some meets will have activities such as cinema or bowling that you may want to participate in, costs for these activities will be in the event details, and you must take care of these yourself. Special events that we host may be ticketed and this will be made clear.
Can I take pictures or record video?
You can always freely take photos and videos in public areas by law, however please respectfully do not take photographs or video of those who don’t wish to be photographed, and if you’re asked to delete a file by someone in it, please respect their wishes. Otherwise, you may not be permitted to return to future meets. Also please note that special events we hold or private venues we attend will have their own policies around photography, and at a minimum permission must be sought, and commercial use forbidden except by a release form.
Do I need a fursuit or costume to attend?
Nope! Irishfurries is a social space for all furries, not just the ones with costumes.
Is there a minimum age requirement?
You must be at least 16 years old to attend our meets or use our Telegram chat. Some meets, chats, or special events may have their own age requirement, usually 18, particularly where the meet or event is held in a licensed venue (such as our New Years party, FNNY).
Can I bring a non-furry friend?
Yes, as long as they understand our meetup etiquette they are welcome to join! Please remember though that individuals will have different levels of comfort and may have some nervousness around new people. Please be mindful of this.
Can I bring my own food or drink?
You can bring food or drink but please do not consume any of it on a business premises (such as a coffee shop, restaurant etc.). Also unless stated clearly in the meet details, please do not bring alcoholic drinks to the meets.
I have more questions, who can I contact?
At official meetups there will always be a member of staff available. For everything else contact us on Telegram, where you can find our moderation team!
