There’s a tattoo festival coming to the city centre this weekend

Tatts & chats, anyone?

One of Cork’s most popular late night and live music venues, Conway’s Yard, has teamed up with The Black Poppy tattoo parlour to host a tattoo festival this weekend. 

As part of the Festival Season line up of events, customers can choose from a range of tattoos designed by the incredibly talented artists in The Black Poppy, while enjoying the chilled summer vibes of Conway’s Yard. 

A busy line up of live music awaits with The Stars on Friday night, soon-to-be superstars The Cliffords (trust us, you’ll want to say you saw The Cliffords in a few years time) on Saturday, and Lady Bird Lad, better known as Harry from Hudson Taylor on Sunday. And the best part? All of these gigs are free to attend!


Summer staple Kopparberg will also be on hand to give away free rounds of drinks and merchandise as part of their takeover of Conway’s Yard. 

Festivities are kicking off from 4pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and if the sun appears, Conway’s Yard have promised that the rooftop will be open so you can bask in that summer sunshine. 

Those wanting to get inked are advised that The Black Poppy will be taking cash only, and alcohol cannot be consumed prior to getting their tattoo to ensure safety.
