The European Au Pair Agency also help young women and men in Ireland find suitable au pair placements abroad with the assistance of our trusted affiliate agencies.
Au pairing abroad allows Irish residents to expand their horizons by learning another language in a European country of their choice while also gaining valuable life experiences by living apart from family and friends.
For those who enjoy looking after children, au pairing abroad gives young adults the opportunity to form a close bond with their family away from home and make new friends in a foreign country.
