Maybe Ireland if Trump Wins

Only about 15 km off the coast
Ireland is offering as much as $92,000.00 to entice people to make a home on sparsely populated islands off their west coast.  

It looks like a lovely place, but you have to restore an abandoned home, and it is a bit remote, only having ferry access.

I also imagine that finding kosher food there would be a bit of a chore:

Ireland announced a new scheme offering generous cash grants to people willing to move to approximately 30 islands of the country's wild west coast. But some prerequisites have to be met to receive the funds.

The "Our Living Islands" scheme offers up to €84,000 (about $92,000) to people who want to move to the beautiful, sparsely populated islands on the Atlantic coast — which are not connected to the mainland by bridges and cut off by the tides.

Options include Inis Mór, which was used as a filming location for the recent hit film "The Banshees of Inisherin," as well as Árainn Mhór, a "rich and vibrant" island off the coast of Donegal.


The goal is to refurbish vacant or derelict buildings on islands into long-term homes as part of a broader initiative to revitalize life and the community on the islands, and increase the population, the government said.

Vacant Home Officers will identify empty and derelict properties on our island.

"As a result of delivering this policy, we will see more people living on the islands and more people working on our islands, with good career prospects, regardless of where their employer is headquartered," Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, said in a statement to receive any funding. However, a person must own property on one of the islands built before 1993 that has been vacant for at least two years.

 I wonder if I could telecommute from there.
