"Being an au-pair in Ireland changed my
life completely. Ireland becomes a part of you when you live there.
The outgoing people, the nature, the culture...too many things
to name! I took a year out between highschool and college and
was living with a great family with 3 young children. I'm still
in contact with the family and a lot of the other friends I still
have in Ireland. At the moment I'm thinking about becoming an
au-pair again after getting my degree. I can definately recommend
to spend a year in Ireland! Find it out for yourself!!!"

"During my stay in Ireland
I immersed myself in the local culture, socialising! I went out
most weekends with friends I met over there and during the week
I really enjoyed family life with my host family.
Basically, I grew up through getting to know myself better and
to reflect on my future. You could call it a sabbatical.
It was a fantastic experience and I would do it again if I could.
We're two years down the line now and I still think about my au-pair
year every day."
