AU PAIR IN IRELAND offers the fastest way for those who come to study in Ireland to work as an Au Pair, i.e. taking care of the child or children of a family. This kind of exchange offers, in addition to payment, a great experience of the culture of the country, as the Au Pair takes on the role of an older sibling or responsible family member for a few hours each day. The word “Au Pair” is a French term, which means “on par” or “equal to”, denoting living on an equal basis in a reciprocal, caring relationship between the host family and children. AU PAIR IN IRELAND is unique because we offer a personalised service in matching each Au Pair to their family in Ireland.

Understand why we are different

In other agencies, the candidate fills out a CV and waits for a family to view it, amongst the hundreds available. Meanwhile, families advertise vacancies and receive a true “flood” of proposals to evaluate. Thus, the selection process can take a long time for both host family and candidates. AU PAIR IN IRELAND provide a fast turnaround, within hours of your application. We carefully screen candidates, selecting the Au Pairs who most closely match the families requirements, and then connect them together. We do the searching for you, saving you time and taking stress out of the equation! We have nine years of expertise in the market, and have built a long-term, trusting relationship with Irish parents. Today our database connects more than three thousand families! As well as connecting families with the right candidates, AU PAIR IN IRELAND also guides you through the interview and selection paperwork process, helping you to manage the cultural and practical aspects of this special working relationship.


To apply for a job through our agency you must be at least 18 years old and be enrolled in an accredited school in Ireland, studying at least 15 hours per week. Men can also sign up, but remember that the vast majority of families, for cultural reasons, prefer to hire female caregivers.
