Hi, We have 3 Children, 2 boys and 1 Girl, their ages are 11, 9 and 7 years and we live in the countryside about 30 minutes from Galway city, just of the N17. We have enjoyed the company of au pairs twice before, Both stayed for long periods of time (1 and 3 years).
We enjoy the outdoors and love to go for walks in the countryside. We have interests in football and rugby and also listening to most types of music and the children love playing traditional Irish music.
We are a very happy easy going family who are looking for someone to be part of our family and who can stay for a minimum 2-3 months to help with our children and with the running of our home.
