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 1002th highest place in Ireland. Cupidstown Hill is the most westerly summit in the Dublin area. Cupidstown Hill is the highest point in county Kildare.

Quickest of all CHP's to do
by paddyobpc  25 Jan 2017
Walk Date: 25 Jun 2016. A spur of the moment decision even though it was late in the evening and we still had quite a long way to go to Kildorrery on our journey home from holidays in Donegal saw us going back and forth near the M7 around Naas to find the start point of Kildare's highest point. This was more to do with our Sat Nav acting up than anything. We finally found the forestry entrance as described in Kieron Gribbon’s book “Ireland's County High Points – A Walking Guide”. Cupidstown Hill is probably one of the fastest of the 32 county high points to complete. It took Rachel, Dillon(dillonkdy) and myself just over 10 minutes to be back to the car and on the road again for home.
See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1051/comment/18820/
