Dear au pair
We live in Barna village in a lovely area 4km west of the city of Galway, on the west coast of Ireland. We live right beside the sea and there is also a beach near-by, a small harbour and a wood. Galway is a lovely, compact, thriving city. Population approximately 65,000 people. The people are friendly and there is usually a lot going on. For example, there is a thriving arts community here. It's got a university (approx 13,000 students). It is a regional capital, a tourist destination, a cultural and arts centre and a university city. There is always lots going on and lots to do and see, even during the winter. There is a vibrant music scene to suit all tastes - rock, traditional, dance, jazz etc... So its a great place to live. We live in a large house by the sea.Our last au pair loved it here.The city has a large student population and a thriving arts scene.We are beside Connemara,a beautiful place to walk/hike. We are on a bus route to city centre and will provide you with a bike.We would be delighted if you will consider us as your host family.
We have had an au pair here with us from Alaska for the past 2 years and she has really enjoyed her stay. We will make every effort to put you in contact with other students from your country or other au pairs. We will may be able to arrange free english classes if required. If you choose to come here, we think you will enjoy your stay. If you are interested we can talk more.
Hope to hear from you,

Dara will be at school mon-fri 9-1.30pm and Oisin from 9-12. I, (the mom)am a teacher and will be working part time school hours 9am-3pm, 2/3 days a week. Jim(the dad) works mon-fri as a technician in the university. We think we are a fairly easy going family. Jim (the dad ) and I , Fiona (the mom) like to paint (in oils mostly) when we can get the chance! We both like the arts in general especially small live music gigs and theatre.

To become part of the family. To play, interact,and look after all the childrens daily needs. To come at the beginning of January and stay until the end of June.The duties will mainly be playing with, caring for and helping feed the children, general house work and some baby sitting. We will be following the guidelines of an aupair agency here in Ireland re. hours and pay. Looking after the children alone 8.30-4.00 two or three days a week, school term time.
