Údarás na Gaeltachta was established in 1980 in Ireland. The organisation has its headquarter in Na Forbacha, Galway and is the regional authority responsible for the economic, social and cultural development of the Gaeltacht. Moreover, Údarás na Gaeltachta has 5 offices throughout the Gaeltacht. Due to a census from 2016, the organisations represents 99,617 people, of which 20, 586 are daily Irish speakers.

The main goal of the organisation is to ensure the Irish language as the main communal language of the Gaeltacht now and in future. This is done by supporting language, cultural and community based activities. Also, the development of enterprises and the creation of jobs aim at achieving the overall objective. The organisation has a youth organisation called Muintearas.

Údarás na Gaeltachta is a member of the FUEN. The organisation was admitted to the Federal Union of European Nationalities in September 2021.
