*Au pair working hours and wages Ireland
A number of families and au pairs have asked us how many hours of work equate to a particular salaries. We have compiled the tables to help.  Please also note that the below hours have been rounded to the nearest hour and that the allowable weekly deduction of €54.13 per week has also been subtracted from the overall figure. For full information regarding employing an au pair please contact your financial advisor.

Minimum Wages for Au pairs:
From our understanding of employing an au pair the following minimum wages apply.
Au pair who is in her first year of employment: €7.32 per hour
Au pair who is her second year of employment: €8.24 per hour
Au pair who has worked for more than 24 months : €9.15 per hour

Other things to note:
1. Employments include employments in any country.
2. The majority of au pairs are young adults who have never worked before. If this is the case the minimum hourly wage of €7.32 applies.
