Pet Sitters Ireland provide Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Services across all of the Republic of Ireland for all types of animals.

We started using Pet Sitters Ireland in January 2015 when we moved to a new home. We met with our walker and felt at ease straight away with his experience and relaxed demeanour towards our fur babies. Judith and the team are always there to support us when needed; and we can’t recommend Pet Sitters Ireland highly enough

It is a great weight off my mind knowing that while I am away for the day at work I can rely on Pet Sitter Ireland to walk my German Shepherd regardless of the weather. I get an update after the each visit to reassure me all is well. Strongly recommend the service. Very professional and reliable.

I have found Pet Sitters Ireland great in helping me look after my dogs and cats. Due to working long hours and recent ill health regular walks were not on the cards and my dogs were frustrated. Since they are recieving a mid day visit and walk they are happier and more relaxed. I also make use of the service when away on holiday to have someone come and look in on the cats and feed them as they find kennel life very stressfull. So all round my animals are happy and relaxed an I have peace of mind.

They have been faultless in the 18 months I have been using them and always update promptly if there are any issues. Recently one of my dogs had suffered from diarrhoea and was prone to accidents in the house. On one occasion the walker arrived to find such an accident. They not only walked my dogs, but also cleaned up the mess and then phoned me to let me know it had happened. Needles to say I was delighted with this level of service and was very thankful that they see that as part of their service. I can’t recommend them enough.Duffy D.Duffy D. ★★★★★ Let me tell you abut Michael McQuillan. The man redefines and gives new meaning to the term customer service.

Knowing our pets are being well looked after, in their own home, while we’re away is such a relief. The pet diary updates are a brilliant feature. Very trustworthy and reliable service. I’d highly recommend !Sally ASally A ★★★★★ We have used Pet Sitters Ireland for both live in sitting and drop in pet sitting services for our puppy and elderly cat. Mike and his team went above and beyond to look after my pets. In particular, my puppy is a handful and they did so much more than I expected to help her settle in with her sitters. You will receive great customer service from booking, sitting and beyond, in addition to updates at every visit, including photos so you can be away from your pet with total peace of mind. I would highly recommend… thanks Mike and the team!geraldine B.geraldine B. ★★★★★ My first attempt flew off. Shannon comes to me and is brill. Very professional and has managed to put manners into my lady in a lovely way. Thank you.Tania G.Tania G. ★★★★★ Alba looked after our cat Milo so well when we were away. She loved him as if he was her own cat. She cared for him so well that we never had to worry for a second about him as her updates and photos gave us so much reassurance. We can’t recommend Petsitters Ireland highly enough. They really care for your pets the way they would care for their own. We didn’t want to put Milo in a cattery as he is a rescue cat and having Alba come to take care of him gave us such peace of mind.jackie S.jackie S. ★★★★★ Mary B.Mary B. ★★★★★ This is my first time using Petsitters Ireland, to look after Bailey for me. Geraldine has been walking Bailey only for a few weeks now, she has been a absolute god send, so reliable & fantastic with Bailey, daily up dates puts my mind at ease & I know Bailey enjoys her walk & has a great time.Totally professional service from first contact. By using this service gives me time to consentrate on my recovery, as poor Bailey was lost & kept looking to me to bring her for walks. I honestly don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t use Pet Sitters, I would highly recommend them to any pet owner considering using such a service.Thank you Pet Sitters & Bailey says thank you as well.Abigail Maria O.Abigail Maria O. ★★★★★ Petsitters are a fantastic service which I have used many times at this stage. They are efficient, reliable and their staff are so friendly and helpful. Alba has looked after my cat Mud on numerous occasions and is such an animal lover. I have always felt so reassured leaving Mud in their care. Alba has always gone the extra mile, even putting a bird feeder outside for mud to enjoy watching the birds come and go from the window inside while we were away for an extended period. Their website is also very handy to use. I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Would highly recommend to everyone and anyone!!Kenneth M.Kenneth M. ★★★★★ Words cannot express how brilliant and valuable service is to us. We city break and travel often and to have these guys with us minding our pets is simply fantastic. The service they offer and the little extras like daily photos really puts our mind at ease. In one word they are a godsend and we look forward to working with Mike for years to come. No hesitation in recommending them.Kenny MohanAbigail Maria O.Abigail Maria O. ★★★★★ Truly excellent and professional service which I have used many times now. They really gave me peace of mind when I was away and had to leave my cat at home. The photo updates are so reassuring, I think my cat Mud might have been a bit in love with the sitter Alba, not sure he even wanted us home in the end! So seamless to book and the online portal is great to see the updates from the sitter everyday. Cannot recommend enough, I will continue to use this service anytime I am away for sure. I would give more than 5 stars if I could.Mary HMary H ★★★★★ We are delighted we decided to use Pet Sitters Ireland to look after our two cats when we were away. We have used the short morning and evening cat nip visits on three occasions so far, both on weekends and for a full week. The online system is easy to use to book petsitters and both petsitters we have had have been extremely professional, reliable and trustworthy. We could tell they were real pet lovers, they communicated really well, followed all the instructions, even cleaning the cats eyes when needed, and filled out a pet care journal including pictures. The features that gave us peace of mind before using this service for the first time were that the pet sitters are vetted by the company and their phones tracked to make sure they are there when they should be. Also there is always a backup petsitter in case the allocated person is sick or something. They will also switch on/off lights and take in bins to make it look like you’re home and deter burglars. Hope this review helps if you need a petsitter. We will definitely be be happy to use their service again next time we go away 😸😺L iL i ★★★★★ Great service, very professionalLisa B.Lisa B. ★★★★★ Fantastic company..Very professional with an amazing personal touch which is very rare these days…our dogs are both rescues and one is very anxious and doesn’t like being without us at all however we had to attend a funeral of a loved one and Mike talked us through the service that was personally designed for our dogs… Trish,our pet sitter is a star and treated our dogs so well while they were in her company…For us to leave our home and for our dogs to be looked after so well was really appreciated… Would highly recommend and would definitely use Pet Sitters Ireland again…Josie H.Josie H. ★★★★★ Good and kind and good serviceMairead O.Mairead O. ★★★★★ Thank you so much Mike and Sarah.

Mike made sure that we got the best suited pet sitter and was always available when we had any concerns or feedback. One of our cats has separation anxiety and as we are travelling quite a lot, it is very reassuring to know the ladies are cared for by someone that love cats as much as we do.

We will definitely use their service all the time in the future. Thank you so much PSI. Highly recommended.Maria C.Maria C. ★★★★★ Pet Sitters most definitely deserve a five star rating. I started using the service almost a year ago and have never had a problem. Annemarie is truly dedicated to her business and seems to just love her four legged customers. Each week we liaise and decide which type of walks to organise. Sometimes we go for the mid day breaks, other times longer walks. I can rest assured when I am working that my dog is very well looked after. Annemarie helped organise walks when I was away for a few days. The doggie was happy in his home and Annemarie called in three times a day. The communication is brilliant too with reports each day.Everything is clear and I never have to worry. I would highly recommend this service. Thanks very much Annemarie and Pet Sitters.Sheila R.Sheila R. ★★★★★ Couldn’t rate Annmarie and pet sitters any higher. The peace of mind that we have with our dogs being walked and cared for is unbelievable. Pet sitters have never let us down and have always stepped in if we are stuck late at work etc. Makes our lives so much easier to know that our two dogs are being loved and cared for by people that we trust entirely, which is a must for leaving our two girls with anyone! 5 starsPeter B.Peter B. ★★★★★ Pet Sitters have being looking after our dog for the last 2 1/2 years and for us it is money well spent. The dog get walked, fed and very well looked after. We get an email notification that leads to a website update for each walk so you know how it went. I highly recommend this service.js_loader
