Irish Pop-Up Collective Hosts its Biggest Ever Event This Weekend!

Posted 3 months ago in Pop-Up

Looking to nail that Christmas shopping list? The coming weekend sees over 55 Irish brands and businesses come together in Dun Laoghaire for the much anticipated Irish Pop-Up Collective (IPUC) Christmas event.

In addition to featuring some of the best Irish fashion, accessories, interiors, craft, beauty, and gifts all under one roof, this year’s event also sees the addition of a variety of cool festive workshops such as wreath making by Flowerpop, macrame Christmas decorations by Astrl Fibres and printed wrapping cloth by Liz Walsh textiles.

Curators Kate Fine and Debbie Millington tell us that “this event will be very festive with our new workshops and seasonal samples from our food and drink businesses.” In organising the event, their main priority is to give a platform to top quality, contemporary Irish brands and businesses so they can showcase and sell their products to new and existing customers.

Visitors can look forward to choosing from a wide selection of fashion and accessories from brands such as Una Burke Leather, Jill & Gill, Pearl Reddington, Begley and Bowie and Peelo handbags. Interiors too are well represented with brands such as Two Wooden Horses, Kaiko, Sinead O’Moore Ceramics, Sea Studio and industrial design brand Kopper Kreation.

Also setting up stalls on the day are beauty brands including Nunaia, Dalkey Handmade Soaps, Waters & Wild and Wild Rose Botanicals, with plenty on offer for the young folk too. Tales for Tadpoles, Pom Pom Pirate, Mimi & Bowe and Qubashi will all be in attendance, while there’s also plenty of sustenance on offer from food and drink brands Braw Chocolate, Mella’s Fudge, Strudel Bakery and Mr L’s Cocktails.

We can’t wait!

The IPUC takes place in the Carlisle Suite at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire from 10am – 7pm on Sunday 10th December.  Admission is free, and those heading to the event by car can avail of free parking in Dun Laoghaire in Sundays.
