NÓS (Irish pronunciation: [n̪ˠoːsˠ], meaning "custom" or "trend") is an Irish language culture and lifestyle magazine.

Launched online on 17 March 2008 during Irish Language Week, Seachtain na Gaeilge, it began publishing a glossy print edition in November of the same year. [1] Run on a voluntary basis, this full-colour monthly edition continued for over a year before NÓS was printed as an entertainment supplement with Irish language weekly newspaper, Gaelscéal. In July 2013, NÓS was relauched with a new design and is currently being published monthly, with extra content updated more frequently online.

The magazine covers topics such as music, film, travel, design, activism and current affairs. It was launched by Tomaí Ó Conghaile, former assistant editor of Lá Nua and television and radio presenter with BBC NI, and relies on a large network of contributors throughout Ireland and abroad.

NÓS has received a number of awards for its contemporary design and content, including Best Irish Language Website at the Irish Web Awards in 2009. It was also the first and only Irish language publications to be nominated at the Irish Magazine Awards.

In January 2015 NÓS launched a new website, updated daily with new content.

Articles in the magazine are normally written in the Irish language, although a number of articles have also appeared in Scottish Gaelic.
