County West Meath

County Westmeath is one of the twenty-six counties of the Republic of Ireland, and also one of the thirty-two counties of Ireland, located within the province of Leinster. Westmeath is the 20th largest of Ireland’s 32 counties in area and 22nd largest in terms of population. It is the sixth largest of Leinster’s 12 counties in size and eighth largest in terms of population.

It was named after the historic kingdom and province of Mide, the original extant of the kingdom conforming to the present county. Westmeath was created under The Counties of Meath and Westmeath Act of 1543. The hill of Uisneach in the medieval Barony of Moycashel is generally accepted as the notional geographical centre of Ireland.

Westmeath is famed throughout Ireland for its beautiful lakes and rivers. Beautifully unspoiled, this delightful county is a haven for watersports enthusiasts, anglers, boating and some truly stunning cruising along the renowned River Shannon.

Filled with intriguing houses and gardens, and gorgeous forest parks, Westmeath is a perfect for enjoying outdoor life at its best.

For more of an urban buzz, head to Athlone, the largest town on the River Shannon and a wonderfully lively spot with excellent restaurants, elegant accommodation and one of the oldest pubs in Ireland.
