While pop up spaces have been highly utilized for retail purposes and special events, this informal yet exclusive approach is now being used all over the world to keep the Irish language alive. Pop Up Gaeltacht nights began in Dublin to actively demonstrate learning and using the language had value following reports Gaelic was dying out. The events encourage the regular and public use of the Irish language as well as promoting a festive, fun and social atmosphere.

Currently the organization relies on announcements via Facebook to get the news out about events. In addition to hosting Pop Up Gaeltacht nights in Toronto, NYC and Washington DC, the founders would also love it if Gaelic speakers hosted their own events.
