    Its all going great. Im an Au pair and had a job ready before i left. I also went by myself, it was scary to start with but the Irish are so nice. There are lots of hostels around to stay in if thats what you wanted to do. What sort of work are you looking at doing? Australian Au pairs has a big demand if your interested. Im not sure about other jobs tho.
    When are you planning on coming over? Im planning to do a trip start of September by my self.

    I WOULD NOT recommend a working visa to ireland right now if you don’t already have a job lined up. Pick the UK and travel to ireland to sight see. All my cousins in Ireland are coming to Canada on visa’s because you can’t even get a job at McDonalds n Ireland right now. WAY high unemployment.
