About Us

About SK Language Programmes Ltd.


The agency was set in 2000 with a mission to provide a quality service to families, au pairs and students. We are now have become Ireland’s leading au pair agency. We have featured on many radio programmes including the Pat Kenny and Marian Finucane shows.    

We find au pairs for families living in Dublin and the greater Leinster area. We have welcomed over 3,000 au pairs into Ireland over the last 2o years. As a result we have a wealth of expertise and experience to share with Irish families, some taking au pairs for the first time. While we receive many referrals from our existing client families, we also welcome contact from new families through our website. 

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 mini-stays for groups of adults visiting Ireland.

We look forward to hearing from you.
