I hope you can help (I´m a newbie here). I have been offered a 3 month contract in Dublin poss extended to 6 months. As I would need to temporarily relocate to Dublin (from Scotland) i would need to organise full time childcare for my 1 year old daughter.

My queries are:

- would I be able to find a childminder who would take on temp childcare?
- what are the current going rates for full time care in Dublin? (Still waiting on confirmation of the office/accommodation location) so not sure if West/North/South?
- any suggestions on good family friendly areas with easy commute to centre?
- what´s the best way to find a good minder? How long does it take?

Any other advice gratefully appreciated?

I will have to make a decision before lunch time tomorrow so any responses would be gratefully appreciated. Only got told today!
Many thanks
