We also only place Au Pairs who have a genuine interest in working with children.
We offer many different options for families depending on their needs

There are many Spanish Au Pairs in England and Ireland. There is a huge Spanish network in Ireland. They settle very well and are very like the English and Irish. They are very family orientated and are very social. They also rarely get home sick as it is only two hours on a plane home. They enjoy going out on day trips at weekends and they love to sample the Irish culture.
All profiles are vetted, medically cleared and all references are double checked by us. We work with agencies in Spain to try and get the best match for everyone.
Our Au Pairs are the highest paid in Europe and receive between €150 - €200 per week and our Au Pairs work no more than 30 hours. We are very proud to say we are the First Au Pair Agency in Ireland to advise higher pocket money and our placements are a huge success.

Please remember that this is a cultural exchange program and it is important for all Au Pairs to sample everything about the English culture. The food, sport, places and everything else that makes us English. Many Au Pairs do their own thing at the weekend with other Au pairs but feel free to invite to join you for some activities at the weekend if you feel they would enjoy it.
