Dear Au Pair
We are the Wall - Regan Family from Celbridge, Co.Kildare, Ireland. Our little boys are Finian (age 4) and Theo (age 2). We live in a large detached house in the countryside, peaceful and green with lots of space for the children to play. Yet we are only a 5 minute walk to shops and the bus into Dublin city centre. Celbridge village is a short distance away as is the historic university town of Maynooth which has a big choice of cafes, bars and restaurants.
We are looking for a caring, energetic, responsible and fun loving Au Pair to come and live with our family. Ours is a busy household with two active children. Responsibilities will include collecting our children from school and preschool; preparing their lunch, snacks and sometimes evening meal; taking care of and playing with them during the afternoon.
We like our boys to spend as much time as possible outdoors (even on rainy days!) so football / games / other activities outside are encouraged as well as visits to local playgrounds, parks, pet farms etc. They also enjoy going for cycles on their bikes. We live very near one of the best outdoor amenities in Ireland - Castletown - a huge country estate and park, ideal for cycling, long walks and runs if that is your thing!
Our boys like to be kept busy and love nothing more than to have someone to play with!
You will have a very spacious bedroom located on a different floor from the rest of the family. You will largely have the use of your own bathroom. Both are part of a brand new renovation in our house.
Your mornings (until 12) and evenings (after 6) will be free as well as weekends though we will need some occasional flexibility which we will give plenty of advance notice for.
A full clean driving licence is an essential requirement for this role.
We would love to host you in our family and show you around our part of Ireland. If you have any more questions about the role, our family, where we live etc please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Marylee Wall and John Regan
