Thank you all so much for your replies. I do realise that a scout trip would be a good idea but I do not have the money to do that too as it would cost a lot. I've been thinking about possibly Seattle, Washington sticks out a lot for me.
I'm not totally opposed to rain! Maybe i should have mentioned that?! Crime rate is a big issue for me too as I'll be moving alone....

Seattle and you don't want rain? It rains more there than almost anywhere else in the country. It's known for rain. It's called the Rain City.

Seattle's cost of living is high too. Maybe you should try Pittsburgh afterall! Pittsburgh is a safe mid-size city with lots of cultural amenities.

I recommend going to the different forums for the cities you're interested in and posting a thread for feedback.

How much could you spend on rent? Some cities can't meet that criteria for some people which would require you to live very far from the actual city.

Those are the types of answers you can find in the separate city forums.

And I'd advise the exact opposite! I think it would probably be easiest to find an Au pair position - especially if she's looking for the job while she's still in Ireland - and anyone looking for an Au pair from another country, is obviously going to have a fairly high income.

sarahlina, if you're at all interested in starting as an Au pair, you could always move into something else later on - it might be worth considering!
