A tiny island off the Northwest coast of Ireland is asking Americans to move there. Here's why you might want to think about it.

Arranmore Island is 8 square miles of quaint houses, green hillsides and plenty of sheep. And they want you to live there.

Apparently the population numbers on the island have been dropping in recent years and the people there want to turn things around.

The goal is to get new folks to move to the island, learn the way of life and keep their rich history alive.

And from the looks of things, people from the SouthCoast and surrounding areas are probably best suited to do just that.

I mean the waterviews.

And they color their sheep, which is pretty cool.

It also looks like fishing is big there, so you know many SouthCoast locals could find work easily.

The only downside seems to be the language if you ask me.

Even though the population is less than 500 people, 62% of those people speak native Irish.

So you'll probably have a hard time understanding your new neighbors for awhile if you go.
