Aoife was fantastic with the kids all day. We booked the 24 hour package and she was minding our son and daughter (3 and 2). Straight away they took to her and were happily playing away. Took the stress off us and family members to mind the kids.

We just got married over the weekend and had the lovely Aoife with us for 24 hour package for our 11 month old - it was by far the best decision with made when planning our wedding.

Aoife was absolutely amazing with our son, he absolutely adored her and she made sure he was present throughout the day but was quick to take him for a little walk or the room to play when he might have been overwhelmed and needed some downtime.

Everyone commented on how wonderful Aoife was and what an amazing service it is. Thank you so much Aoife you absolutely helped make our day even more special knowing our little boy was in such good hands.

Katie looked after our little boy who is 1.5 and his two older cousins on the day of our wedding for an over night and the kids are still talking about it! They absolutely loved her! We were totally relaxed all day as we knew the kids were happy and so safe with Katie. They took to Katie as soon as she arrived, which isn’t surprising given her warmth and fun energy. Nothing was an issue and it was like Katie knew the kids all along. We got regular updates and photos to put us at ease too which was an amazing touch. The kids have already asked when they’re having another sleepover with Katie! If you are thinking of booking, we couldn’t recommend this service enough! The best money we spent for the whole wedding. Thank you so much Katie! You are amazing at what you do!

I had been stalking Auntie Katie’s from
The minute I got engaged. I was 4 months pregnant, I remember being so impressed with the service , I had just seen it n passing on instagram so started following straight away.

I had never known of anyone that got a babysitter for a full day a night of a week wedding that wasn’t a family member.

Our little boy was 15 months old when we got married last May. No one ever had him except us and our parents so I was up to 90, but the minute Katie came through the front door my mind was at ease.

She was a breath of fresh air. Dylan was having a nap when she arrived so she was helping out downstairs with the bridesmaids an all :)


Dylan woke up and she went and got him from bed, she got him dressed for the wedding and kept him entertained. She was so amazing with him

She kept him occupied in the church but brought him for photos. He was always around and she was texting updates throughout the day

I thought the idea of the suitcase full of toys was amazing. They cater to all ages so the suitcase was fully equipped with toys for Dylan’s age group

My best friend was my bridesmaid on the day and is currently pregnant and getting married next year. She was blown away with Katie and is def going to get booked in

I couldn’t recommend her enough. She gave all the family the chance to enjoy the day but still spend time with the baba

We had Katie for our wedding recently and she is outstanding at what she does. When we arrived at our venue she was running around after our boy and he had the biggest smile on his face. I was worried before the day about how our little man would take to someone new and if he would become overwhelmed with so much going on. Katie reassured me that she would go with the flow and spoke about her experience. This put me at ease and when we saw her in action we knew we went with the right person. Our boy absolutely loved her and took to her straight which isn't surprising as she is such a wonderful and caring person. She came prepared with her bag of tricks and her bubble gun was a big hit. She took him away when things got too much and nothing was a hassle. Katie even worked hand in hand with the photographer to catch the perfect family photo. Everyone who attended were so impressed with how she carried out her job, how attentive she was and how easily she fitted into the wedding party.
We can't thank Katie enough for her services and would highly recommend her.

Laura was the Nanny for our wedding and we would have been absolutely lost without her. We have a 5 and a 2 year old and Laura was absolutely fantastic with them. Laura had her work cut out for her with our extremely energetic 2 year old but it didn't phase her at all. She took it all in her stride and he was the most connect little boy all day in her company. It was priceless not to have to worry about our children on our wedding day. We had the 24 hour package and it was brilliant. The children stayed in the hotel room with Laura and brought them down for breakfast the next morning, all dressed, ready and happy. Laura, you were amazing and we are so grateful!

Without a doubt this was the best money I spent on my wedding. Clodagh was so amazing with all the kids, they took to her instantly and she kept them entertained all day. Whenever they wanted me they cane for cuddles and then happily went away with Clodagh again. She sent regular updates to my sister so we always know where they were. Having her there meant we could all relax knowing the kids were happy and well looked after. I'd highly recommend that anyone with kids hire Auntie Katie's for their day.

Had Katie for 2 days of my wedding starting in limerick & heading to Tralee. Didn’t have any worries from the moment we met her, my 2 kids (1&2 year old ) took to Katie like a duck to water and enjoyed her company so playful with them, no problem with feeding them changing them ( we had everything organised) kids were spotless had their naps, if I could pick Katie up and bring her home with me for everyday I absolutely would. My kids had not met her prior and can make strange with people but Katie just had a great way with both and off they went, she stayed with them overnight for the 2 nights. The best vendor we had for our wedding was Katie, once we knew our kids were safe and happy you can relax and enjoy your day & no family member is worrying about them or running around after them which is not something we wanted.
Highly highly recommend auntie Katie’s ❤️

If you are in two minds about booking Auntie Katie’s trust me, just do it, it will be the best decision that you will make for your wedding. Shannon was a godsend. We had Shannon for a 24hr package from 10am the morning of our wedding to 10am the next day.

It was the first time our two kids, 4yr old & 1& 1/2yr old met Shannon & they took to her straight away, our youngest even fell asleep in her arms at the church. You will always worry about your kids no matter who they are with but I knew then that I could relax knowing they were in safe hands. Shannon has a lovely way with kids and was like Mary Poppins with her bag of tricks, fully prepared for all eventualities

All our guests were amazed by Shannon & how effortlessly she fitted into our family on the day. Thank you so much to Shannon for looking after our little ones & keeping them so happy & entertained all day/night, allowing us to relax & thoroughly enjoy our wedding day.

If you are thinking of booking auntie Katie’s please take my advice and book them! We had Aoife from 10 am the morning of our wedding to 10 am the next day. To say she was unbelievable would be an understatement. As soon as I met her I relaxed and knew my 2 year old son would be in good hands. She is such a warm friendly and overall just really lovely lady. She was so good with our son, playing with him all day and taking him for walks when needed. We could fully switch off and enjoy our day. She even had him sleeping in a cot which he won’t do for us at home. So many of our guests asked who she was and commented on how amazing she was with him. I cannot recommend Auntie Katie’s enough. Thank you so much Aoife for looking after our boy so well!

Great communication in advance and on the day itself. Carla was super, arrived exactly when she said she would, was fully equipped to keep our 16 month old entertained and soothed. She was so good with him from the get go that it put our minds at ease and allowed us to enjoy the evening. We would be happy to recommend this service, and Carla in particular.

We had Katie and Ashling look after 5 kids at our wedding, ages from 2-9 years. All the kids were immediately so comfortable with both girls. They were amazing with the children and really assured we could enjoy our day. They came so prepared with lots of toys to keep everyone entertained. They settled our kids to bed so easily meaning we didn’t have to leave our guests. I couldn’t recommend Auntie Katie’s highly enough. They made such a difference to our day.

If you haven’t already, book this service now!

I do not know where to begin - our experience with Clodagh was 2nd to none, we would have brought her home with us if we could!!

My husband and I booked Auntie Katie’s the moment we had secured our venue knowing our now 3yo daughter’s comfort and enjoyment was our top priority on the day.

Clodagh took care of not only our little girl but my niece (4) and nephew (6) too. All 3 children had the best time, were entertained and cared for to the highest standard and for someone they had only just met they fell in love with Clodagh - she put them at ease immediately.

Clodagh, we cannot thank you enough for minding the kids but also helping with my train at the photos too - there’s nothing you can’t do!! We are so grateful for your help in making sure the kids had the best time.

I will say it was the best decision we made when planning our wedding, best money spent as well. We had Katie for 24hours and the relief when she arrived the morning of the wedding it was a weight lifted off my shoulder's. The kids loved her, family loved her, I didn’t have to worry about what they were up to as I knew they were in safe hands with Katie. I cannot rate or recommend these beautiful women for their hard work and dedication to the children they mind to help brides have the best day, which is definitely what we had thanks to Katie.

Clodagh came to watch our little girl for our wedding day and honestly it’s the best money we spent at the wedding, it was such piece of mind knowing she had Daisy and we didn’t need to worry, There was originally no requirement for her to put her to sleep and she brought her up no bother, she brought a suitcase of toys and was extremely prepared! Daisy was even asking for her the next day wondering if she was coming back 😂❤️ 10000% recommend

Katie was unbelievable I knew when I arrived. And my two year old didn't run to me she was out on her own.
Hands down the best thing we booked. Our children are still asking when they can see her again. She was so much fun, Nothing was to much trouble to her. She dressed our son for the ceremony and danced with them into the night. We could relax knowing they were happy and safe.
Katie is so lovely she felt like part of our family and friends. Couldn't recommend her enough.

This was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding day. We wanted to ensure all our loved ones were able to enjoy the day without having to look after the kids so we turned to Auntie Katie. We were blown away by how fantastic all the team were with our kids, they were just incredible . The kids were immediately at ease which gave us such great peace of mind. Extremely well prepared with games and activities, they also had a great nack of bringing our son around at crucial moments of the day whilst keeping him happy and entertained. A special shout out to Clodagh who helped organise the service with such professionalism and bonded with our son so quickly we were sure he’d try to go back to Cork instead of coming home with us the following day.

Aisling from Auntie Katie's looked after our 2 boys(age 6 and 10) for 24 hours at our wedding. From start to finish she was exceptional. Within minutes of meeting she had built a rapport with them so they felt safe and happy in her care. The boys were fully involved in the day but when they needed some time away Aisling was right there with them. It was such peace of mind for us knowing that even when the boys were having a little wander, Aisling always had eyes on them and we didn't have to wonder what they were up to!! My younest especially loved the suitcase of toys!!! Both boys agreed after the wedding that they were so happy Aisling was with them for the day. We highly recommend Aisling and Auntie Katie's.

I don't know where to start. I booked 2 nannies for my twin daughters (who both have autism). I was extremely nervous as I'd only ever leave them with a close family member. Clodagh and Donna arrived that morning for a 24hr package. They were an absolute dream and made me feel so comfortable. After a short while getting to know the twins they just completed took over and done what met their needs. Not to mention helping myself out also. I could not fault these ladies in any way. The really made our wedding day and it was the best money we have ever spent. I would highly recommend them. Also my guest were asking about them and couldn't believe how great they were and that they had never met the twins before. Their amazing!!
So thanks a million I wish you all the best in the future. Nakita and Eddie

I couldn't recommend Auntie Katies more highly. Clodagh looked after our 2 year old and Carol Anne looked after our 7 month old. From the moment they arrived they just slotted straight in and took over looking after the boys. They were both so sound and fitted in so well. I couldn't picture it until it happened but our two boys were instantly content and happy with clodagh and Carol Anne. It was such a relief that it all worked so well. We had a long conversation in the run up to the day about how much we wanted the boys there and how we wanted things to run. I was concerned that the boys had never met them before and they wouldn't settle. Clodagh assured me all would be fine and it 100% was. They even sat happily on their laps during the ceremony! If you're thinking about using this service I can tell you it is the best money you will spend. Our 2 year old is still talking about Clodagh one month later!

I highly recommend Auntie Katie's wedding babysitting. I was (and still am!) amazed at how comfortable and happy our son was with Clodagh, Clara and Katie from the minute they arrived. The girls are amazing at what they do and we can't thank them enough for taking such great care of our son and flowergirls. They have such great initiative and insight that the children are part of the day as much as possible, while never being allowed to become overwhelmed. This service is invaluable and it was possibly the best investment we made on our wedding day. Thanks so much Clodagh, Clara and Katie!

Wedding date : 8th March 2024. Sheen Falls Lodge.
I would highly recommend Auntie Katie to anyone thinking about it. It is an excellent service and Clodagh was excellent at what she does. We booked 24 hour package and I have one son over 2 and half. It's not everyone my son stays with and considering he only met Clodagh on the morning of our wedding he took to her straight away even looking for her the week after our wedding. He was also a bit out of sorts with a cold. I cannot recommend this service or Clodagh enough. I would have had a stressful day without Clodagh there to look after my son so well. She is friendly, professional, calm and helpful not just with my son but the whole bridal party. She kept not just me but my sister updated by text and photos of how my son was doing. This service exceeded all my expectations. If anyone is undecided about booking Aunty Katie, do not hesitate just book them. It will be the best money you spend. It was a pleasure to have Clodagh as part of our special day.

We booked Auntie Katie's for our March 2024 wedding for our 2 boys (Aged 2 & 3) for the 24 hour package.
From the moment the boys met Katie, they felt at ease and it was like they had always known her. The youngest boy was very upset and overwhelmed at the beginning with the new surroundings and all the people but Katie was able to make him feel at ease and happier straight away. He was clung to her for the rest of the day, Katie had a great way of making them feel happy. The whole day, Katie knew where the kids needed to be, for the ceremony, the pictures etc. When the kids were upset or overwhelmed Katie brought them for a walk or back to the room for some down time.
For the photos, Katie worked some magic and had the kids looking at the camera and smiling, we were calling herself and the photographer the dream team with the kids photos.
There wasn't one person at the wedding that didn't ask about Katie or mention how amazing she was with the kids. A lot of people asked for her details which we happily passed on.
It was honestly the best decision we made regarding the wedding to book the babysitting service for the full day and night. Katie kept us updated on what was going on with the kids throughout the day. Everyone was able to enjoy the day including the kids which meant the world to us.
Without hesitation I would highly recommend Auntie Katie's and I think it should be at the top of the list for any wedding with kids.

Clodagh and Donna were professional and responsive to our 3 children from the moment they arrived on the wedding morning. Our children (ages 4, 2 and 8 months old) took to them immediately and it was like they had known them forever. They were excellent at responding to the children's needs and reading and responding promptly to all situations during the day and night. They kept us informed as to what was happening and made decisions in the children's best interests throughout. This service exceeded our expectations - we would have been lost without them and we are so grateful we decided to book Auntie Katie's.

I cannot recommend auntie katies enough! We booked the overnight package and it was the best money we spent on our wedding! Clodagh was a gem, from the minute my 2 girls (aged 22 months & 3 years) met her in the reception area they were obsessed with her! Clodagh looked after them so well. She ensured we still felt the girls were present during the day but also knew when to take them away to play when we needed space to chat to our guests. When my 3 year old is asked now what her favourite part of the wedding was, her answer is my friend Clodagh. I think that sums up how amazing Clodagh was! If you have children attending your wedding, book auntie katies- you won't regret it!

Carol Anne was amazing!!!! She was so full of energy. She was so prepared for every eventuality (I forgot lots of things and her reply No problem I'll work around it and she did). There were 3 or 4 other babysitters at the wedding (not from Auntie Katies) and Carol Anne was by far the most professional and prepared. Lots of other guests commented on how amazing she was. She was minding 5 boys aged 10 to 3 and they all loved her. The 3 year old keeps asking to stay In the hotel with Carol Anne again.

We would highly highly recommend Auntie Katies (especially Carol Anne). We had no worries at all during the wedding.

Auntie Katie is simply amazing! We couldn?t be more delighted with the exceptional service she provided.

We had Katie for a 24hour package for our wedding this December for our two boys who just turned 3 and 1. Everyone was very doubtful of how this was going to work as they are always with us and often nervous even going to other family members. From the moment they met Katie they loved her and we could relax and enjoy our day knowing they were so happy and in such good hands but also part of our day.
Her dedication and professionalism deserves five stars and we couldn?t recommend Auntie Katie enough. Ciara and Joe

Auntie Katie was with us on our wedding day and that night. What can I say. Can we keep her was our 1st thought when we woke up the morning after our wedding. Auntie Katie came to my house the morning of our wedding and I don?t know what she did but the kids gravitated straight to her. We have a 2 1/2 year old, my nieces 2 & 3 were also there. All I could hear was laughing singing and giggling and it filled my heart with such joy knowing the kids were happy. Having our son with us on our wedding day was so important to us but we were also aware that it was going to be a long day for him and not once did I hear a cry come out of his mouth. He gave us kisses good night and when we met them at breakfast the next morning he was up in Auntie Katie?s arms and didn?t want to come back to us ????. I cannot put into words what an amazing person Katie is and the service she provides is worth its wait in gold.

Auntie Katie was superb with our 2 babies (Aged 1 & 2) from the moment she arrived on the day of the wedding. I was apprehensive about how it would all work, because they're so young, but I had nothing to worry about. Katie has a natural gift with children. There's no panic or distress just excellent care. Any time they needed me she brought them straight over and they were so happy with her.
Having Auntie Katie with the kids allowed us to relax knowing that someone had eyes on them constantly. This allowed us time to meet people and enjoy the day while still having our children there with us and part of everything.
I have lost count of the number of guests who commented on how amazing she was in the church.
I cannot recommend Auntie Katie highly enough. Excellent service, excellent care, total professionalism and she went above and beyond her role.

We couldn’t recommend Auntie Katie’s more and would have been lost without Katie on the day. The kids all took to Katie within minutes and were more than happy to stay with her for the evening. Prior to the day Katie was really responsive and willing to respond to any queries we had. On the day itself Katie arrived with a bag full of toys and activities and entertained the kids for the entire evening even bringing them into the venue to watch the first dance. It was so lovely to have the kids there for this and without Katie it wouldn’t have been possible. Thanks so much for being a part of our day!

We could not recommend Katie more! She looked after our two daughters and my niece in December in Hotel Doolin. We had a 24h package. Katie arrived at 10am the morning of our wedding and the girls immediately took to her. We were a little worried ahead of time but there was absolutely no need. Our girls were infatuated with her and have often asked for her to visit them again. Katie is a pro at knowing and anticipating the girls needs. She was present in an unobtrusive way and knew exactly when it was time to let them have some down time when the excitement got too much. It was great that they were very much part of our day but when the time came for them to nap, take a break or eventually go to bed for the night, we knew that they were in safe hands and we genuinely did relax. So many of our friends and family commented on how great she was with the girls and we have passed on her details on numerous occasions!

Katie was absolutely amazing. She took great care of our two young daughters ( 1 and 3 year old) and niece (2 year old) for 24 hours. Katie is a professional. Very easy to communicate with and schedule the day. She set up a very handy whatsapp group for the day for all the parents and carers which was very useful for sharing updates. Bedtime and baths went better than with us at home! The other guests were very impressed and kept asking us, "who is that amazing woman with the kids?!"

The bride and groom arranged for Auntie Katie to look after the flower girls and page boys. My 2 little girls had a ball, and said it was the best part of their day. They did crafts, games, dancing and loads more besides. They were genuinely disappointed when it was time to come home.
And from the parents point of view, we got to enjoy the reception (and champagne) without having to keep checking where the kids were, and have our meal on our own.
I could not recommend the girls enough. They would be the most welcome addition to any wedding with little people involved.

Dawn was our Sitter the day of our wedding . But we felt she was more like another member of our family . We have 2 little girls ages 4 & 1 . And from the moment Dawn arrived I felt more relaxed. The 2 girls took to her instantly. She was so kind, fun and helpful. We couldn't of done our day without her . I would highly recommend Auntie Katie's services. We can't thank Dawn enough for all she done .

Nikita was our minder for our daughter on our wedding day. From the moment she stepped into the room she fell into the vibe of everyone and introduced herself to our daughter Thea who was smitten with her straight away. Our daughter keeps saying she loved the wedding because of Nikita, she loved her. It was the first time Thea had a babysitter and we couldn't have asked for better. Not once did we fret or worry she wasn't being cared for. Thea was beyond content and comfortable we felt totally at ease throughout our day. Our families were equally impressed. Nikita was beyond amazing! We were so impressed on every level and will be highly recommending Auntie Katies service. Thank you!

We had Clodagh for our wedding last November and she was just amazing from the minute she stepped in our company. She took over getting my little girl getting her dressed. I knew my kids were safe with Clodagh from word go, anytime they went away from us throughout the day, she texted to say where they were. It was the best money we spent on the day. Clodagh wasn't just good with the kids, she was amazing getting us all geared up for photos and fixing my veil etc. Anyone getting married or a guest with kids, i would highly recommend hiring Auntie Katies for piece of mind. All our guests had commented how brilliant Clodagh was throughout the day.

I can?t recommend Clodagh from Auntie Katie?s highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt so at ease knowing our 18 month old was in great hands. Clodagh made sure he was involved in the wedding as much as possible but also kept him to his routine which was a life saviour. When he wasn?t with us at the wedding she kept my sister updated with messages and photos which meant we could all fully relax for the day knowing he was also happy out!
Clodagh was so professional, friendly and kind and our son absolutely loved her. An easy 5 star review :)

Katie minded our 2 boys age 2 and 6 for our wedding last month. She was absolutely amazing from start to finish of the day! Katie has such a friendly and enthusiastic manner about her that it was like our boys always knew her! Having Katie around gave myself and my husband great ease on the day of the wedding as they were safe and always seemed to be enjoying themselves with Katie every time we met them during the day. If you are looking for a babysitter for the day of your wedding look no further and get Katie!

The best money we spent on the wedding was on Katie, our daughter and nephew instantly attached to Katie like they had know her all their lives. Katie had the kids with us at all times unless they needed a break, she was as we kept saying "a child whisperer". Absolutely delighted we decided to book Katie she made our day stress free. She was on hand to help with anything, not just child related. Absolute star, best service you could get for your wedding.

Our two year old boy is a Covid baby, and we live in the UK. His time with other people is limited to nursery. Clodagh was amazing from start to finish, and they got on immediately (well, when she brought out the truck with mini trucks inside!). We had intended to come back to the room to put him to sleep, but he didn?t need to! The next morning he was even asking when she was coming back! First time in a long time we danced the night away ?? Thank you Clodagh!

What can I say about Katie and Clodagh? Working as a wedding supplier myself, I often bump into both of them at numerous weddings & have seen them in action. So when our own big day came up, we always knew who we were going to call. The hardest part of planning a wedding when you have children is the job of the care of your child on the day. You cannot fully relax unless you know that they are in safe hands and my god are Katie and Clodagh the safest pair of hands. They were absolutely phenomenal. They came to the house that morning to look after our two sons who are three and five. They took care of them at the church. There was not a geek out of the kids in the church. So many wedding guests complimented how fantastic they were at keeping them entertained throughout the church and they were so happy and content. So much so when the mass was over, the kids wanted to go straight back to our Airbnb with the two girls even though they had only just met then because they were having so much fun with all the toys. The two girls took the kids back to our house and minded them until 12 o'clock the following morning so that we could get a sleep in and rest. We cannot thank both of you enough for all that you have done. Not only are they so professional but they are unbelievable at their job. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us and we will be recommending you to absolutely everyone x

Katie is truly an expert in what she does not only just with the kids but all things wedding. Her professionalism is so fantastic it was witnessed by all, even guests and couldn't not be acknoledged. From the moment Katie got to the venue our 5 month old was in awe of her and I had an instant sense of ease knowing how well she was going to be looked after, something I had been nervous of being a first time mom leaving her with someone other than family. Not only did she take amazing care of Mia all day she also brought her to us for cuddles at perfect times and had her nearby for photos at all times. I genuinely don't know what we would have done on the day without Katie, she was honestly the best money spent and I couldn't recommend her highly enough. Thanks so so much Katie for making our day so stress free.

My sister got married in Gougane Barra recently and we booked this babysitting service for the day of the wedding. Clodagh was our babysitter and she was fantastic. I have a 20 month old and a 4 month old, so Clodagh was kept busy. She was brilliant with both kids, we felt very at ease knowing she was minding the kids. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone as we got to enjoy the wedding knowing the kids were well looked after and in safe hands.

Katie was unbelievable!!!. I genuinely don?t think our wedding day would have been so amazing if it wasn?t for her. Book her for your wedding 100%!
We had a 5 month baby who is breastfed, won?t take bottles, and is very attached to Mammy. And on top of this we had a 2.5 year old full of sass - not an easy combination to take care of! Katie somehow managed to keep them both smiling and everyone was saying how great she was with them and how good the girls were on the day.
We didn?t need to say a thing to Katie, she knew herself when to take them away but she knew how to keep them close to us too, she has great initiative and obviously has great experience with kids and babies - you get the impression that she has seen it all!
At nighttime I was able to pop up and down to the room to feed the baby to sleep as I just couldn?t leave her for the night, Katie was happy to roll with this and watched over her and let me know when she was stirring, meanwhile the toddler slept 12 hours happy out. All in all everything worked out smoothly all thanks to Katie - she?s a pure gem and we won?t forget her for all her help!

Having never had a childminder outside of our family, I was unsure how our 16 month old son would take to someone he didn't know. From the moment he met Donna he was totally at ease. We wanted all of our family members to enjoy our wedding without needing to looking after our child and this service was the best decision we made! Donna was amazing, so much so our guests thought she was a family friend as Arlo was so comfortable with her. At one point he was with us and put his arms out for Donna! We knew right away he was in good hands. Despite Arlo not sleeping well before our ceremony, Donna ensured he was in and out of the day as much as possible, while ensuring he was getting what he needed. If you are reading this considering booking this service for you wedding, DO IT!

This is a must have service for any couple getting married with babies and young children. Katie and her team will come to the house the morning of the wedding and look after them right through until the morning after. Allows all family memebers to enjoy the wedding stress free while ths children are still present and involved in the wedding celebrations. Our children are two very active 2 and 3 year olds. They could run and play under the watchful eye of Katie while the wedding was underway. It made the day for us to be able to relax knowing the children were well looked after. I would highly reccommend this service.

We had Clodagh & Elena for the daytime & staying overnight for our wedding last Saturday to mind 7 kids ranging from 11 months to 9 years, I was worried with how my 2 year old would respond as he's usually always clung to me, a few of the other kids would be too, but oh my god how shocked I was when not even an hour with them he was running to the girls instead of me. I can honestly say this was the best money that I had spent on the wedding, the girls were so friendly and caring and did such a great job taking them away for tantrums during the speeches, and bringing them upstairs when they were becoming overwhelmed with all the people downstairs. They are all still asking where the suitcase of toys are gone hehe! Honestly girls I can't thank you enough, the kids were still present for the important parts of the wedding and then looked after for all the rest, you really helped make our wedding day the brilliant day it was, I will 10000% be recommending you to everyone!

We had Clodagh for our wedding last Friday. We have 2 kids and they both instantly took to her the minute she came into the house. I'm still too emotional to watch back the videos she sent me, as the photos alone are making me ball my eyes out. She made our kids day more special than we could have ever done ourselves. She kept them entertained and happy during all aspects of the day. Nobody would believe me when I told them that the kids had first met her at 11am that morning. I feel so lucky that we were fortunate enough to get Clodagh for our day, as she really and truely made our day extra special with her beautiful personality and love for minding children.

I booked Auntie Katie?s for our wedding in Kinsale. It was hands down without a doubt the best money spent. We had 13 children ranging from 3 - 10 and we had Auntie Katie?s from 3pm to 9pm which covered our drinks reception and evening meal because what child wants to sit through either of those!

As the bride, I was concerned about my level of stress as my 2 children were 4 and 5 but it was not needed as my kids and my guests kids were all entertained amazingly and all the parents (including ourselves) were thrilled they actually got to enjoy the wedding because of Auntie Katie?s.

The added comfort was that the kids are all free to go between their parents and Auntie Katie?s which reduces the stress of ?what if they?re upset?

I honestly cannot believe how amazing they were, I?ve told anyone that will listen to hire them!

My one regret is not hiring them from prep that morning so if you?re a future bride and stressing about how the kids will do, hire Auntie Katie?s (from wedding prep!)and through the dinner and you and the kids will have the best day ever! I can?t imagine the added stress if they were not there xxx

We simply can't recommend Aunty Katie's Wedding Nanny enough! They were absolutely fantastic with our son,niece and newborn nephew. They met the children at the church and instantly bonded with them and insured they had everything they needed for the entire day, night and the next morning. The kids are very easy going but we underestimated how overwhelming the day would be for them so we were so grateful we had arranged Kate and Maria to be there from the church. They are so professional, kind and caring. They don't remove the children from the day but ensure the children are part of the day in the best and safest way possible which was our highest priority. They were also a massive support to myself and Dave throughout the day and have great advice as they have a wealth of experience behind them. We can't thank them enough and will never forget how they made our little man's day on our families big day.

She allowed us as a family to have such a lovely day. The kids got some time out from the celebrations when needed allowing them to enjoy the day more also. She was beyond professional and straight away we felt content leaving the kids in her care. Outside of all she did for the kids she also helped us to get some beautiful family picture's and was on hand to tie ribbons on the bridal car too. I can't imagine her not being a part of our day.

We would like to say a million thank yous to our Wedding Nanny Aisling from Auntie Katie's who was an absolute star on the day of our wedding. She did such a great job taking care of our 4 and 8 year old. She arrived an hour before our ceremony and introduced herself to our little girl (4), she got her dressed and everything for us just before the ceremony. She sat beside the kids during the ceremony in case they needed the distraction or some time away from all the grown up stuff. After the ceremony she helped with the photos the kids needed to be in and then she watched them for us for the rest of the day. She took them to their room for little breaks when they needed them and had a bag full of toys the kids loved exploring. After dinner she sat with them while they played in the kids corner and she watched them when the kids danced the night away on the dancefloor. When it was time for bed she took them to their room and got them ready for bed and they were really settled when she left us at 1am. We got so many compliments from guests on how good she was with them, so much so they thought that Aisling was our full time childminder cause the kids took to her so well, even though they had only met her. She was so kind and patient with them and made sure to check in with us throughout the day. It was a massive reassurance for us that we knew someone was watching our kids for the day and that they were happy and still enjoying themselves. We would definitely reccomend Aisling and Auntie Katie's to any couple getting married who have kids they need looking after. Thanks so much again Aisling for all your help and a super service. X

Charlie was so comfortable with Katie through the Day and night we didn?t have one worry or stress!

She was a childminder and a right hand women the day of our wedding! It was the best money we ever spent. She was a lovely kind girl! (I speak so highly of clodagh because she was with my children) Isabelle I only met in passing but my brothers children were crazy about her! Girls thank you so much ???? I still have a four year old her telling me about all the fun things ye got up to! Ye have a wonderful business and wishing ye every success going forward.

Katie and Clodagh looked after our 3 children (age 4, 2, and 5 months) for our wedding last week. I cannot praise them highly enough on here. If there were more stars to give, I would give more. I was very nervous about the kids being with someone they had never met, but the girls just swooped in, took over and it felt like we all knew them with years. I honestly can't imagine what we would have done without them. All of our guests were commenting on how attentive the girls were with the children. Our children had NEVER stayed anywhere else apart from their own beds, and I let Katie know this straight away, but it didn't phase her one bit, she just put me at ease straight away and said it would all be fine, which it was. They also went above and beyond their line of duty, doing extra jobs like helping me with my dress on multiple occasions, and doing small things that they didn't need to do, but gladly did to help us out. I'll never forget when I arrived to the church in the car, the gate had closed in the wind, I then saw Clodagh running at full speed towards the gate to have it opened in time for the car!!!! I called her superwoman! We are currently packing for a few nights away and our girls are asking if Katie and Clodagh are coming with us!!!! I WISH!! If anyone is hesitant on booking Auntie Katies, please, let this reassure you that it will be the best money ye spend on your wedding day. 100% guaranteed. Xxx Linda

I cannot praise these girls enough here, from the moment they arrived they were hands on, the kids took to them straight away like they had always known them. They both stayed over and we knew our kids were safe and in great hands for the night. I can recommend anyone to contact Katie if you are having an event and worried about the kids going, they will look after them and play with them like their own. Thank you so much girls for looking after our babies so well.

My biggest worry in the lead up to our wedding was our 9 month old daughter. I was still breastfeeding and so we were still somewhat joined at the hip. She hadn't been away from me for more than 3 hours on a rare occasion, and never in the evening. She would make strange with anyone outside of her inner circle, and was not a good sleeper.

None of this phased Katie! She listened to my concerns and reassured me. She was very confident and made a bond with Gr?inne quicker than I've seen anyone else do. She was calm and confident and did an amazing job of looking after our daughter for the day. I had made out a schedule, hoping that we could have Gr?inne awake and in good form for the ceremony. Unfortunately that didn't go to plan as Gr?inne got overwhelmed by all the people, but Katie did an amazing job of reading the situation and making judgement calls before things escalated. She was able to read Gr?inne's cues and respond quickly, avoiding a complete meltdown on numerous occasions.

When it came to the evening, I was fully expecting to miss some of the meal / speeches / band etc. but Katie managed to get Gr?inne to sleep and I came in to check on her and feed her twice during the night and that was it. I was so reassured to see Gr?inne smiling and giggling with Katie even in the middle of the night. They had clearly made a bond during the day. I couldn't recommend Katie more! If it wasn't for her, I don't think I would have been able to relax and enjoy our wedding day. Because of Katie, I was up until 4.30AM when the party ended, which was more than I could have ever expected! Thank you so much Katie for taking such great care of Gr?inne and for being so pleasant to deal with. You are a lifesaver and I wish you all the best with your business!

We had the absolute pleasure of having Katie to mind our three kids and niece on our wedding day. She made the day so easy for us and minded them so well. Kids loved her. She was an absolute dream to have with us minding the kids. Cannot recommend Katie and Auntie Katie's services enough what an amazing choice we made! Thank you again.

Katie was amazing from the time we met her to the morning after our wedding. Katie came and met our son the evening before as he is very clingy and can be apprehensive with people so I wanted to make sure he would be okay on the day of the wedding. He took to Katie after a small while and the day of the wedding they were great friends. We were so comfortable knowing Jack was happy, enjoying the day while still being able to do his own thing which meant an awful lot to us. Jack adored Katie and still looks at the pictures and mentions her name. Jack happily slept until half 9 the day after the wedding, went for breakfast and returned to mum and dad in great form. Would highly recommend, best money we spent without a shadow of a doubt. Don't second guess your decision you will not be disappointed. Wishing Auntie Katie?s Service the very best for the future.

Clodagh was our babysitter for our boys at our wedding and she was just amazing. I was a bit nervous to have a minder initially because both boys can be a bit strange with people but Clodagh was so professional and the lads immediately warmed to her. She was so pleasant to deal with and the children geniunely loved her. Would definitely recommend. It really is a great service and gave us peace of mind on our big day.

I can't recommend Katie enough . She was absolutely brillant on Saturday with my two boys. My oldest boy has additional needs Katie was amazing she new lamh signing and just couldn't do enough for them. They were involved in the day but got breaks as needed. Everybody at the wedding commented how amazing she was and they couldn't believe she only met the boys that day. They thought she was family friend she was so good. The boys loved her so much the youngest lad cried his eyes out when she was leaving. My day was extra special because I knew the boys were happy. This was definitely the best money we ever spent. Thank you Katie. Would give Katie 100 stars if I could .

We had the absolute pleasure of having Clodagh to look after our 2 girls, aged 4 and almost 3 for our wedding. 10 mins after arriving our youngest was up in her arms which never happens! There is no way I could've enjoyed myself as much without Clodagh. And my girls didn't miss anything either. They had a bit of time to themselves in the room after the ceremony and were ready then for dinner and dancing. One of my girls has allergies and Clodagh was very attentive to this and checked with me if unsure. When the girls were out dancing Clodagh was never too far away. Definitely the best decision to have Clodagh there for a stress free day!

We got married in June and Kate and the team minded my 12 nieces and nephews ranging from ages 3 right up to 14. All the parents were singing their praises and I could not have asked for a better service. Kate and the team could facilitate anything we needed. Some of the kids needed someone to stay late in the room and this was looked after, one of my nieces has mobility restrictions and every game or actively was completely inclusive. My siblings and their partners could enjoy themselves knowing the kids were in safe hands. It?s hard to imagine a wedding without this service now that we have done it, 5 stars

Many family members commented on how fantastic you were with her in the church. I was able to fully relax and be present on my wedding day knowing she was in such safe hands. I really couldn?t recommend Katie more. I didn?t have to worry about anything baby related all weekend because Katie and her team do such a 10/10 job!

Well where do I start. I contacted Katie to check availability Corey age 2 and Freya 10 months(Bride and groom baby)for my brother wedding two full days and nights and to my delighted she was available. From the minute I met Katie and Kesley on the day I knew they would be well look after. They took both of them for walks to see horses to playground and for lods of games . From the church they were hand on and for when things got to much for them they took them outside and for photos Katie making them laugh and smile for them . Nothing was ever to much for them and to see Corey and freya happy and looked after let the bride and groom and myself happy to enjoy the day without worry and also for the second day . I can't thank ye both enough ye are truly amazing thank you x

I cannot begin to explain what an incredible service this is. It's a 5 star service all round. Nanny Donna was amazing start to finish. We booked the 24 hr package. I was weary as my kids haven't really had anyone mind them aside from their childminder or family but they took to Donna instantly. She has such a pleasant nature about her. My little boy was distressed on occasions throughout the day including during the ceremony and she knew exactly what to do. This service allowed the kids to be involved in the day while been happy and cared for throughout. This was the best money we spent on our wedding. If your considering booking then do it!!! You won't regret it. Thank you Donna, Katie and all the team. My kids still speak about her xxx

From the second we booked Auntie Katie's we knew we had done the right thing. We had 8 kids (aged 4-8) at our wedding and we really wanted them cared for, to be part of the day, have fun but have space to run around too.

Once we had a call with Clodagh Moloney we were blown away. Clodagh is a true pro, and such a warm and brilliant girl we just warmed to her immediately.

We booked Clodagh for 24 hours (10-10) and another fabulous Clodagh came for 14 hours (10 - midnight) From the second they arrived they just took over and the kids started having fun immediately. We literally did not worry about our little girl at all, she was having the time of her life. She was flower girl and Clodagh helped me so much on the morning and really just made it all so seamless. Clodagh helped me with some of my own bits too and she was just so fab to have around and we had so much fun.

The kids were very much part of the day but it meant they could have some chill time after the ceremony and just play and have some fun with eachother. We had a little mini kids disco for them before they went to bed and the 2 girls were giving it loads on the dancefloor too. We loved having them around and we were thrilled to share the day with them both. They were a pleasure.

Our little girl spent the night with Clodagh and slept until 10am the next day and was hugging her madly as she left!

Auntie Katies are honestly the best investment for your wedding day - don't give it a second thought! It's a genius idea and we are so delighted we brought them on board. It's a complete no brainer and most importantly your kids are well looked after and will have a BALL.

Forever grateful to the 2 Clodaghs - we loved having you and we will always be so appreciative.

Where to start.... Katie was just amazing! From the moment she met our daughter Izzy (a year and a half old) they had an instant bond. We were stressed that Izzy would want to be in Mom and dads arms all day and we wouldn't get to immerse fully in our wedding day. Katie put our mind at ease straight away. Izzy was there all day, happy, involved, looked after and cared for so much. We booked the 24 hour package and booked Katie for the following evening so that we got to enjoy day two also. We couldn't believe how quiet and content Izzy was in the church and at the meal for the speeches. All our guests commented on how good Katie was and could not believe Katie was A) Not our everyday childminder and B) That the day of the wedding was the first day Katie and Izzy had met. Could not recommend Katie enough. Made our day/weekend so much better!

For our wedding we had Siobhan looking after our Daughter Ellie who is 2 and a half years old. We got on amazing with Siobhan, she was absolutely brilliant. Ellie loved her. Ellie had a nap with her in the morning which I was delighted about. Ellie even brought Siobhan a bit up the aisle when she was walking up because she didn?t want to leave go of her hand.

Went to bed at 8 and slept all night I think she only woke once for a couple of mins. Siobhan brought her down for breakfast in the morning and then brought her back to james and I.

Honestly, Siobhan was amazing and it really put me and James at ease to know Ellie was in safe hands and happy.

Siobhan even made a group chat with me and James and sent us pictures of Ellie throughout the day and sent us updates when she was asleep.

I was delighted to come across Auntie Katie?s. I had looked into a number of different options for our big day and all others were very pricey and not as easy to deal with.From the beginning Katie was very warm & friendly. She was easy to work with. We mainly required support for our 8month old however also needed consideration for our 7year old especially if he chose to stay with his baby brother that night. Subsequently he didn?t (instead opting for a cousin sleepover) which is why flexibility was paramount to us and we were so appreciative of this & that it didn?t affect our cost. Again this was a big differentiator compared to others we spoke with. On the wedding day itself we had Clodagh. From the get go she was incredible. Our 8month old was teething very badly and, as a heavily breastfed baby is not used to being minded by others therefore would get upset whenever he was away from my husband and I. On the day he was also refusing solids & bottles yet this did not phase Clodagh at all. My only regret is that I didn?t get Clodagh for earlier that morning because as soon as she arrived (2hours before our ceremony) it meant I could instantly relax and actually get ready. Our baby was overtired and overwhelmed when Clodagh arrived however magically she had him ready and in amazing form for the ceremony. I had expected he would miss it entirely so was thrilled we got exactly what we could?ve hoped for. When our baby need to be away from all the fuss Clodagh immediately removed him and calmed him, she got him to nap and made sure he was brought to me for feeds. Clodagh kept us informed of how he was via my sister which provided huge reassurance and let me know when he really needed a feed or just to be with us. Clodagh was professional, polite, warm, patient, flexible and incredibly attentive to our babies needs while also ensuring our 7year old was looked after for anything he needed too. Our day & night would not have been the same without Clodagh there. She felt like part of the family when she was departing. I highly recommend Auntie Katie?s for any future couples considering this service.

Ensuring our 2 children were well looked after for our wedding day was our top priority and Clodagh Moloney made sure of this which meant we could fully enjoy our wedding day and not worry about our nearest and dearest small people. Clodagh was fantastic with our children (3 and 7months) an absolute dream from start to finish, she read the situations very well and was so professional and capable, even when we had forgotten the babies buggy in the boot of the bridal party car, Clodagh carried the baby until the buggy appeared with the groomsmen, going above and beyond.
When photos needed to be taken Clodagh was there with her suitcase of toys, helping to get the children to smile. auntie Katie's is a fantastic service which I would recommend to anyone. Our little boy keeps asking when Clodagh will be back! Look no further than booking auntie Katie's for your big day, you won't regret it

I had 15 children at my wedding all family and there ages ranged from
9 - 1
Katie brought a team of 3 with her. They were outstanding literally all of us parents didn?t even have to lift a finger all day ,anytime I seen my 4 year old
and 2 year old Katie or one of her team were with them ,they played games with them all day they fed them
At dinner time changed nappies, danced with them for the disco and when the time came they put them to bed ,The one worry I had was with my 2 year old who just wonders off and does his own thing all the time but My 2 kids took to Katie the minute they seen her she has a very special way with kids and from that very minute I knew I didn?t have to worry as they were in very very safe hands ,I am so so glad I booked Katie and her team for our wedding day ,knowing the kids were so well
Looked after meant me
And my husband could relax and enjoy our day ,It was worth every penny and more
And I highly recommend this team

Auntie Katie's we can't thank you enough for taking such amazing care of our kids on our wedding day! They had an absolute ball and were included in absolutely everything throughout the day. 3 kids was no bother to Katie! What a professional!! D?ire Katie and Saoirse are still talking about the 'best day ever' ???? We chose the 24hr package and it was so well worth it. The children were in safe hands from start to finish and really enjoyed being a big part of our day. Katie thought of everything! Her suitcase of toys was a big hit.
She was brilliant when it came to pictures and had all the children focused and engaged and when they had enough she discreetly took them aside and entertained them so they were still part of it all. We didn't have to worry at any stage as she checked in with us regularly to ensure us they were all fine and enjoying themselves. We cant recommend Auntie Katie's highly enough!! Such a professional service and such an experienced lady Katie herself is. Thank you so so much. Aileen and Tom

My partner and I flew home from Oz for my sisters wedding in April with our boy who was 11 months old at the time - we had previously been informed of Katie?s amazing service and got her booked! I actually couldn?t have been more grateful to Katie she was absolutely amazing. I was a bridesmaid and my son was pageboy so it was going to be manic getting ready - Katie was in the area so arrived 4 hours earlier than expected and came to meet us it was genuinely like she had known my son from birth there was no faffing about she just came in and took over and it was amazing! Katie took Kai for a walk and joined us in the bridal suite after and even got Kai ready into his suit - Katie had him for the whole service and even afterwards was floating around the wedding with him making sure he got to see and meet everyone

When it came to bedtime Katie dashed off with him and sent plenty of updates and photos so I was reassured that he was ok but I knew from the minute I met Katie that he was in the best of hands - my partner and I have both said that getting Katie was the best money we spent our whole trip home she is so caring and my boy absolutely adored her. Myself and my partner were actually able to enjoy the full day and the day after all thanks to Katie and her service. If you book this fantastic service I can guarantee you won?t regret it ????

Our girls loved them and we could see from the get go that they were in the best of care. They will fit in anywhere, they are great fun and are so easy to get along with. So helpful throughout the day, not just with the kids but with whatever they could help with. We missed them when they had gone.

We had our wedding on Friday and Katie was our wedding nanny. From the very first conversation I had with Katie on the phone I knew she was going to be amazing. It was evident that her top priority is the children she cares for. We booked Katie to take care of our 2 year old son for a 24hour period during our wedding. Katie arrived at the hotel at 10am, she immediately bonded with our son within seconds, she brought a bag of toys such as bubbles, cars, tractors, blocks. She dressed him, fed him, changed him, soothes him, played with him, and met all of his needs throughout the period we had her until 10am the next morning. Katie is an absolute professional who is incredible with children. She is very calm and caring. All of our guests kept asking who the girl with our son was to complement how good she was with him. I would HIGHLY recommend katie and will definitely use her again in the future. Thank you Katie! 10/10

Absolutely fantastic service!! Everyone was asking about Clodagh and where we found her. Clodagh arrived to the house the morning of our wedding and put everyone's mind at ease. Not only did she mind our son but she also helped myself (bride), offered advice when needed and was like a ninja jumping in to get Ois?ns attention for photos. We wanted our son to be part of our special day but without him getting too over whelmed. Clodagh involved him in every aspect of the day from the church, photos and even some dancing. She was like a babysitter/wedding planner/advisor all in one. Clodaghs experience with children and attending weddings really shone through. The best money we spent!! We would highly recommend Clodagh!! She is absolutely amazing at what she does!!

What a fantastic service!
Clodagh was waiting for us when we arrived at the hotel, and immediately bonded with the children; we were two families with 4 kids under 6. She had them all day and overnight and they loved her. She kept in touch throughout, and sent us pictures of the fun they were having. I had to bribe my children to come down to the wedding reception as they ?were having too much fun with Clodagh?. Knowing that the kids were happy & safe, gave us great peace of mind and we were really able to relax and enjoy the wedding.
Thank you so much to Clodagh & Auntie Katie?s ? I would highly recommend your services.

We had Auntie Katie look after our three year old for our wedding day and she was amazing. Katie is fantastic with children and has such a nice way about her my son just loved her straight away. He was sick the day of the wedding but it didn't phase Katie she was fantastic. Everyone was asking us who was the lady minding Jamie and thought we had known her for a long time when I said he had just me her that morning they could not believe it, she is just so professional and great at what she does. Jamie is a real mommy's boy and I was really worried about who would mind him on the day but with Auntie Katie there I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding day knowing Jamie was in good hands. Anyone who is getting married and has children I would highly recommend Katie, it was without a doubt the best money I spent the day of the wedding, thank you so much Katie

Katie was fantastic with our six month old. She ensured that the baby was involved at a level to suit her schedule. She removed any anxiety or worries we could have had, making the whole day stress free. We would definitely recommend Katie.

My husband and I got married on December 15th 2022. We have a 1 year old son and a 3 month old son. Katie came to the home house and was absolutely fantastic. I was so worried about how my eldest would react but he absolutely loved her. We have been asked since the wedding for Katies number. She is all people are talking about. I couldn't recommend her enough !! We will 100% get her again.

Katie was outstanding the day of our wedding, she took great care of our 14 month old son Dermot and he had so much fun with her. We were really at ease knowing that Dermot was happy and he could join the celebrations when he wanted. Our guests and the hotel staff all
commented how great Katie was too, she was like part of the family. Katie was very flexible and worked around the times that suited us. Such a great service and will definitely recommend to anyone I know.

The best money we spent for our whole wedding! Dawn was absolutely amazing!! She was so helpful as well as looking after the kids. Our two kids were 3 and 6 at the time, they are both a handful, everyone commented on how amazing Dawn was with them. From the minute she arrived she got stuck in and they loved her straight away. Our wedding is almost 3 months ago now and they still talk about her. We didn't have to worry about the kids all day which was so lovely to know they were being well looked after. We will be recommending this service to EVERYONE we know! Thanks again for making our day stress-free xx

We couldn't have asked for better with Katie. She did an amazing job minding our 11 month old the weekend of our wedding. Katie is very experienced and intuitive; our daughter Rhea to her immediately. Katie ensured Rhea was part of the day (they even did the rounds during the drinks reception and dinner which we loved!) but also that she had her naps, meals or was whisked away when things got overwhelming for.
Katie was so easy to deal with and professional. Our guests were so impressed with her and how she managed Rhea. Thank you Katie.

We got married at the weekend and Kate took our 11 month old daughter all day and kept her overnight! She brought her into the church for the ceremony and into the reception when aswell. She was absolutely amazing with her and we didn't have to worry one bit about her. Aoibheann had her arms out for Kate rather than us. We could enjoy every minute of our big day knowing she was in safe hands. If your thinking of booking Auntie Katies don't wait just do it, you will not regret it ??

Can't recommend Katie and Clodagh enough. They were singly the best thing we did for our 3 kids who were attending their aunt's wedding. Communication was brilliant with Katie at time of booking and she took such interest in learning about our kids and what they liked. On the day Katie and Clodagh made sure that the kids were their only focus, so well looked after and they had the best fun. We genuinely knew that they were in great hands from the minute we met the girls. The had so much energy and enthusiasm. The kids got to have great fun but were also brought down to join in the fun when wanted. Without a doubt amazing value for money, the girls went above and beyond and our kids still talk about the great fun they had with Katie and Clodagh.

Where do I start Katie and clodagh looked after the kids at our wedding recently and all I can say is they are AMAZING ???? ????. There was nothing these women can't do. They made our day so so special by making sure of 2 kids were looked after and also part of our special day. They aren't just babysitters they are so much more than that and the kids had an absolute ball all day. We felt so happy and we knew the kids were happy with them and that made all the difference. If anyone is thinking about booking with Katie don't even question it for a minute best thing we did for our wedding. Forever grateful for all they did on our big day.

Aunty Katie was a godsend for my wedding! She came to Portugal to look after my two little girls under 3 for 3 days! My girls loved her and enjoyed all the time with her. But not only that me and my now husband were able to completey switch off knowing our little girls were in the capable hands of Katie!
I would 100% recommend her to every couple getting married with young children in Ireland or abroad!

I honestly cannot speak highly enough of the work kate and her team do we had kate herself for our wedding a few weeks ago and my god I was blown away she cared for 2 very "energetic" 3 year olds and our son and niece. Kate made it look easy from the morning of the wedding in the church the venue and even the following morning they were so well behaved trust me we were shocked ???? honestly the best decision ever made was having kate care for them they didn't look for us once and we were quiet content with that she had everything under control from start to finish!! I personally just want to say thank you so much for everything and making the day so much easier for myself and my sister will 100% be recommending to everyone xx

We were blown away by the service provided by Clodagh. Clodagh entertained all 4 of the bridal party kids superbly. She had her hands full with the 3 girls 3,4 & 5 years but managed them better then we could ever hoped for. All the kids who have only ever had immediate family babysitting loved her and took to her straight away. Clodagh made our day taking the kids soon after we arrived at the hotel. The comfort of knowing the kids were happy and safe with her was fantastic. She brought the kids to us several times throughout the evening letting them still be part of the celebrations but allowing us adult time and them wedding free time in between. It really was perfect. Our family didn?t even have to be called on for bedtime help!! The kids have talked very positively about Clodagh and when i asked my 3 year old 3 year old if she liked her she told me she was ?so much nice? & my 4 year old told me all the fun things she did with them ???? We received several comments from guests who noticed how fantastic a job Clodagh was doing. Clodagh went above and beyond even helping me with my dress & veil. Thank you so much to auntie Katie?s for giving us such an amazing childminder it really let the whole family enjoy the evening!!

Clodagh minded our 14 week old son on our wedding day & the following day. We would highly recommend Clodagh & Katie from Auntie Katie's wedding babysitter service. It was our first night away from our baby and we felt relaxed and trusted in the excellent care that he got. The service was professional & great communication meant we were kept up to date yet able to relax on the days also. Would highly recommend this service to anyone looking for a wedding babysitter service.

We were so worried how our 1 & 2 yr old were going to cope with our wedding day - thank goodness for Auntie Katie ! Kept them entertained and cared for all day long - the kids loved her from the get go - it was such peace of mind for the day and into the night - they had a ball with Katie and it meant we could relax and enjoy our day - Katie couldn?t have done more for them and for us on the day and I couldn?t recommend her highly enough - still can?t believe how instantly the kids took to her it was phenomenal!

We hired Katie to mind our 3 year old son Evan on our wedding day and it was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. Katie arrived early that morning to our house to meet Evan and came with us to the church and venue and stayed overnight until breakfast the next morning. Katie was fantastic with Evan. It was so lovely to have him with us for the day, but also have the comfort that he was being kept entertained and cared for all day.

Evan loved being with Katie and settled with her so well, which helped us enjoy our day even more!! We would 100% recommend Katie!! Such a fantastic service and I would recommend to any parents on their wedding day or celebrating a significant occasion.

Katie was minding my Son & nephew (4 & 1.5) for my wedding and I simply can't recommend her enough. She had the boys all day and over night and they loved her. From the moment katie came along she got stuck into playing with the boys, recognising when they needed to be distracted or needed some calm time, having fun and it was amazing to know they were safe and we didn't have to worry.

Katie, you are a star and truly amazing. We enjoyed the whole day and it was really mostly down to you and knowing that we didn't have to worry about the boys. The guests at the wedding also commented about what a great service Katie provided. Thank you so much

We didn't have worry about our sons for 1 second from the minute Katie had them until following morning. Katie came to our house few times before wedding so boys were well use to her. Months later and they they still talk about her. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

I started looking for kids entertainers as i wanted the adults to be able to relax and enjoy the meal and stumbled on Auntie Katie who provided a much more comprehensive service. Katie and Siobhan looked after our 11 month old son for 24 hours as well as entertaining 10 other kids during the drinks reception and meal time. Our son took to them like a relative and straight away we knew he was in safe hands. We didn't see a nappy for 24 hours! They kept the children entertained and had something to cater for all ages. We had from 0 to 9 years old. Katie brought plenty of toys and games to keep them occupied. The girls were on hand at the church and at photo time to make sure everything went smoothly. They entertained the other kids from 4.30pm until the music started around 9.30pm. The kids had a separate meal and the girls fed them meaning the parents didn't have to get involved. Both Katie and Siobhan are clearly used to dealing with children and all of the wedding guests were very impressed with them. I couldn't say enough of good things about Katie and Siobhan and would recommend them to anyone for kids entertainment or for for babysitting at weddings or other events. They can do everything!

We knew Katie was exceptional from the moment she walked in. Katie provided an outstanding service from start to finish & we are forever thankful to her for taking care of our two little ones with such dedication & professionalism. I dread to think how I would have coped if we didn't have her on the day. Our little boy of a year & a half doesn't stay with many people but he took to Katie straight away. Also while the photographer was taking our photos with the kids, Katie was well able to keep them content & looking at the camera for us which is not an easy thing to do. I would highly recommend this amazing wedding Nanny. Katie is highly capable, exceptional at her job. She goes above & beyond for the wedding couples & their children.

We had Katie mind our 2 boys from the morning of our wedding to the following morning. They absolutely adored her and 3 months on still speak about her. My oldest is autistic and normally doesn?t settle with many people but he loved Katie straight away. I had absolutely no doubt in my mind from the moment we met Katie that my boys were in loving and safe hands. She went absolutely above and beyond every moment of the day. Almost every guest commented on how absolutely amazing she was all day long. I honestly could not recommend her enough. We will forever be thankful to her for being a part of our day. My boys keep asking when we are getting married again so they can be with Katie lol.
Katie you truly are an absolute gem, from the get go it?s clear that you adore kids and love what you do. The boys were so happy the whole time with you and you made myself and Joe completely at ease. Thank you for everything xx

Kate was amazing start to finish. Kate really had her work cut out when minding our 2 girls 4 and 9 and page boy 7. After the church ceremony the vomiting bug hit and hit hard. Kate took them down for little bit of the meal but they wanted to head to the room so they all headed back to the room and she took the best care of gang. And to make 100 times harder our 4 year old daughter was a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic. Kate came to our house before the wedding to get a run down on how to look after clodagh and was so interested in learning how to care for clodagh and her diagnosis went through injection sites and her full care plan. Kate worked so hard all night organising and cleaning up after our girls and page boy. They were really sick and kate was just outstanding and we able to enjoy our night so much knowing that she was taking care of them. All 3 of them absolutely adore her and still ask for her. I have her booked again for another family wedding in 2024 and highly recommend her. It was so hard to find someone to care for type 1 diabetic and kate was so easy to talk to and so eager to learn and she really made our day because we knew all the lads were in the best care.

Katie was absolutely incredible from our very first time communicating with her to everh single step of the way on our wedding day.

She was looking after our 2 year old who at the time was still Breastfeeding and very much a Mammys boy. I was expecting him to be needing me all day long and to be honest I was a little worried about that-

I couldn't have prepared myself for Katie and how her service would have made our whole Wedding Day what it was. Jack took to her so well and was so comfortable in her care. He even fell asleep on her during the ceremony which put my biggest fears to rest that he would need to be up in my arms throughout the vows or worse be roaring crying that I wouldn't lift him and have to be taken out. I feared that but instead I looked down from the alter to see him fast asleep in Katie's arms and I could have cried with happiness knowing he was so content.

For the whole day Katie was amazing she entertained not only Jack but his two brothers 8,9 ( My stepsons) and lots of the other kids at the wedding too.

She knew when to bring him over to us and when to entertain him.

We had the best day and night. Katie took all three boys to bed and slept with Jack ( he had never slept away from us before and I was worried before we met Katie but having seen her magic throughout the day I knew he would be absolutely fine and he was )

She took them to breakfast the next morning and returned our happy rested and fed children to us at 11am.

I honestly couldn't recommend Katie more- We would not have had the wedding day we had without her. She was without a doubt the best money we spent on our day and worth it and so so much more.

We got married in June when our little boy was 6 months old. From the minute Katie walked into the house it was as if we knew her all our lives. She blended in effortlessly and is so down to earth and easy to get along with. Our little man had never met her before (even though Katie did offer) and he took to her straight away. We didn?t worry about him once because we knew he was in safe hands. Katie is worth her weight in gold and we couldn?t recommend her highly enough!
