About Us

About SK Language Programmes Ltd.


The agency was set in 2000 with a mission to provide a quality service to families and students alike. Since then we have become Ireland’s leading au pair agency and welcome around 200 au pairs and 500 teenage students each year.  

We find au pairs for families living in Dublin and the greater Leinster area. Our au pair agency has placed over 3,000 au pairs into Ireland over the years. We are delighted to share our expertise and experience with Irish families and au pairs alike.

We run summer camps in Arklow and Aughrim each July. We also place teenagers on immersion programmes with Irish families throughout the country. Furthermore, we organise school tours into Ireland throughout the year. 

For au pairs and other foreign nations living in the Wicklow area we provide English lessons at Arklow Language School. We also organise linguistic cultural exchange mini-stays for groups of adults visiting Ireland.

We look forward to hearing from you.
