Ireland’s Revitalization Scheme Invites You to Refurbish Island Homes for $90,000


Dublin, Ireland–Ireland has recently announced an appealing initiative for those seeking a tranquil retreat from the hubbub of modern life. The country plans to rejuvenate over 20 scenic islands off its western coastline, including Inis Mór, familiar from the popular film “The Banshees of Inisherin,” and ten Irish-speaking Gaeltacht islands.

According to a CNN report, the Irish government is increasing grants up to €84,000 (almost $92,000) for individuals prepared to renovate and reside in abandoned or dilapidated homes on these islands to facilitate this ambitious revitalization project. Vacant Home Officers are currently identifying eligible properties for potential island inhabitants.

The report stated that it’s important to note that despite no restrictions on property acquisition in Ireland, owning a house does not automatically grant the right to live there. Prospective island dwellers should refer to the government’s official website for comprehensive information on the “Our Living Islands” policy and the ongoing refurbishment program.

In other travel news, plus-size travelers have voiced their concerns over the lack of uniform airline policies regarding seat allocation, urging airlines to provide clear instructions for larger passengers. Meanwhile, Australian airline Qantas has revealed the design for economy seats on its soon-to-launch 19-hour flights from New York to Sydney, promising additional legroom and movement space.
