Properties in Westmeath Ireland

Visited by few outsiders, County Westmeath is a tranquil expanse of lakes and rolling farmlands. Tourists come here to enjoy the water, as the Grand Canal and the Royal Canal both run through the county, while the River Shannon has a modern harbour in one of its major towns, Athlone. Lakes and waterways provide plenty of good fishing and recreational opportunities. Westmeath has stately homes and lovely gardens; especially renowned is the recently restored, 18th century Belvedere Manor in the county seat, Mullingar.

This largely agricultural county is close to Dublin, with easy road and rail access to the city. Other major commercial towns in Westmeath are Moate, Kilbeggan, and Castlepollard. Athlone is perhaps the liveliest town, with one of Ireland’s oldest pubs and 13th century Athlone Castle.
