Today, we hope you fished out some of your #green clothes again: THE #nationalholiday that is celebrated in more countries around the world than any other, #stpatricksday, or let's say – the day everyone wants to be #irish – is celebrated today.According to tradition, Patrick came to Ireland to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity. Patrick's efforts to convert, subjugate, and drive off the #celts were eventually turned into an allegory in which he drove #snakes 🐍 out of Ireland (Fun Fact: Ireland has never had any snakes!).Tradition holds that he died on March 17. Over the following centuries, many legends grew up around Patrick and he became Ireland's foremost saint.With this little history lesson, the staff of ASE Cultural Exchange wishes you a happy St. Patrick's Day! 🍀#exchangeagency #ireland #dublin #stpatricksdayparade #irland ...

As 2021 is coming to an end, we have once again prepared another #Irish vocabulary lesson to help you impress your host family on the “Oíche Chinn Bliana” (which literally means “Year’s End Night”, the Irish equivalent for New Year’s Eve).The Irish language distinguishes between talking to one person and talking to more than one person:If you want to say “Happy New Year” to one person, you can say “Athbhliain Faoi Mhaise Duit” (pronounce it like /Ah-vleen fway vah-sha gwitch/).If you wish to say it to a group of people, it is “Athbhliain Faoi Mhaise Daoibh” (/Ah-vleen fway vah-sha jeeve/).With this little lesson in mind, the staff of ASE Cultural Exchange Ltd. wishes you and your host families a prosperous #NewYear! 🎆🎉 ...

How many hours a week will I be on Au pair duty?

The weekly hours you have to help the family must be agreed between you and your host family. As an Au pair, you agree with your host family to help in the house for 25 to 35 hours per week, and your duties will be primarily childcare-related duties including some light house-work. What you do, how frequently, and for how long, depends to a large extent on individual family requirements and will be discussed and agreed upon by you, the Au pair, and your host family. The agreement between the Au pair and the host family stipulates that Sunday and one other day during the week are free.

Will I be able to attend language classes as an Au pair?

Of course. The family is required to give you enough time off to be able to do courses for the duration of your stay as an Au pair – at least one regular evening per week.

Will my driver’s licence be valid? Will I be able to drive a car in Ireland?

It’s unlikely that you’ll be driving in Ireland unless you – or your family – is willing to pay a high insurance premium.

Car insurance in Ireland is taken out for the driver – not for the vehicle as is the case in Germany. Car insurance in Ireland is much more expensive than in Germany, particularly if you are under 25 (as the majority of the Au pairs are). Your own driver’s licence is, in fact, valid in Ireland, but, to drive here, the host family would have to take out special insurance for you – which not many families are prepared to do because of the high cost involved. Driving a car without insurance in Ireland is a crime punishable by severe penalties!

What insurance cover will I need as an Au pair in Ireland?

It is strongly recommended that all applicants taking up Au pair positions in Ireland take out their own health insurance. A good insurance company for German Au pairs is Hanse-Merkur (Email Hanse-Merkur). Without private insurance you would have to pay, in the event of illness, for any visit to the doctor/hospital. (In an emergency, however, urgent health care would be covered by the state just as in the case of Irish citizens.) No other insurances are required.
