Working as a Au Pair is a cheap way to visit another country and experience the culture and family life. Au Pairs normally work 5 days a week in a family home helping care for the children and doing cooking and housework. In exchange the Au Pair gets free meals and accommodation as well as an agreed payment (pocket money).
At online Au Pair agencies you can register yourself as available for Au Pair or Nanny work in Ireland or worldwide. Families can also register their requirements for Au Pairs or Nannys. Irish people can apply to work as an Au Pair abroad too.
