Cupidstown Hill is the highest point in Co. Kildare. However, it is on the fringes of the Dublin Mountains and is dwarfed by other nearby hills such as Seefingan and Kippure, both on the Dublin/Wicklow county boundary. It is therefore less well known than certain lesser heights in Co. Kildare, such as Dunmurry Hill (231m) and the Hill of Allen (202m), which dominate their surroundings to a greater extent. Cupidstown and Cupidstownhill are names of townlands in the parish of Kilteel.   Cupidstown Hill is the 998th highest summit in Ireland. Cupidstown Hill is the highest point in county Kildare.

What are some people like?
by Colin Murphy  3 Apr 2015
Cupidstown Hill is notable for one thing only, the shocking amount of dumping and litter everywhere. About 200m up the hill into the wood, some gobshite has gone to the trouble of hauling up an old fridge and dumping it between the trees - the effort he must have put into it makes you wonder if it simply wouldn't have been easier to simply go to the recycling centre. But everywhere there is rubbish - at the entrance gate, on the track and at the summit, which is marred by old prams, plastic sacks and all sorts of junk. The 'walk' itself takes less than 10 minutes and is worth doing merely to bag a county highpoint. But just close your eyes on the way up. Another contributor has stated that the entrance is marked by a black and yellow bar - this no longer exists. But don't worry, you'll know you're at the right place when you see the pile of junk dumped outside the gate. (See pic) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1051/comment/17903/
