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 997th highest place in Ireland. Cupidstown Hill is the most westerly summit in the Dublin area. Cupidstown Hill is the highest point in county Kildare.

One for the County High Pointers only!

The start point as mentioned by others leads to an easy walk along a forest road for about 500m before reaching the trig point. behind the mast marking the Kildare CHP. The forest trail had lots of rubbish strewn along the side and I even saw what was either a washing machine or drier, in any case whichever it was it shouldn't be there. You will be back to the car in ten minutes so needless to say this will only be visited by the CHP brigade. The most unspectacular of all the county high points (and I'm including Slieve Beagh in that comment). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1051/comment/20129/
