Our Au Pairs

Nanny Options Au pairs are candidates from within Europe who have come to Ireland on an au pair exchange. They come to learn English, taking a break from their studies, travel, and experience a new culture and to earn a little pocket money. The au pair will live in with the family, they will need to fit in with your family life and be included in family activities.

The au pair helps you through your daily routine and is an extra pair of hands by providing childcare support. The au pair tidies up the children’s rooms together with your children and can take care of the laundry and light housework. As a live-in part of the family, the au pair can provide babysitting evenings or weekends.
