Au Pair Abroad Ireland


Au pair in Ireland – Ireland is the go to place now- a-days. Although it may seem small in size it is definitely a place you will not forget! Many of the host families are situated in Dublin.

About the job

Au pair jobs in Ireland are for a maximum of 6 months due to visa restrictions. Once you finish your 6 months in Ireland you may decide that you want to do another 6 months at another destination in the UK or Europe. One of the advantages of doing this is that there will be no extra charges and you get to explore more of the world! After 6 months you may decide you want to use the remaining 6 months of your visa to travel and explore Ireland.
If you’ve never been to Ireland you’re truly missing out. It has something for everyone but you must see it first to believe it. Not only does Ireland have great music and country pubs but the people of Ireland will amaze you.
Many of the host families live in or near Dublin, with a small amount of host families based in the country. Please let us know your preferences and if you are flexible about what location you prefer.
