We live in Galway, Ireland and have had 5 au pairs that we found from your website. They looked after our 3 boys.
Our first au pair was Malvina Polish. She was brilliant at taking the boys for walks. The boys still talk about the great sea-side walks and hide and seek games they all played in the sand dunes. Malvina's English really improved and she had a great social life in Galway city, she has since returned to Galway and is studying here.
Next was Martha, from Poland, had lots of expienence looking after kids and was very competent. Martha was a dream au pair really. She was so good she stayed two years.
Next there was Anika from Germany who again had a great social life in Galway and made great friends with a neighbour au pair from USA. She had excellent English and our boys language really improved in her care. She had to leave after 3 months because she got a job opportunity - an offer she could not refuse.
Next there was Irene from Spain who smiled every single day. She loved our boys and especially our youngest and with her boyfriend Toni taught him great soccer skills. Toni and Irene since became teachers. They will be both wonderful teachers. The local librarian really missed them calling into the library. We are still in contact with them.
Then came Martha, Polish, who stayed with us for 3 years. She was again fantastic. We helped her to get work in Galway and she now works with children as a childcare assistant. So we are now looking for our 6th au pair through AuPairWorld.
