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 1005th highest place in Ireland. Cupidstown Hill is the most westerly summit in the Dublin area. Cupidstown Hill is the highest point in county Kildare.

Accessing Cupidstown Wood from the North is difficult
by jgfitz  13 Jun 2019
I followed Track #2611, which starts at Slievethoul/Saggart Hill, and then heads south to Cupidstown Hill. No problem with Saggart Hill. However, the access into Cupidstown Wood at O 009 211 starA is very difficult as there are two barbed wire fences to overcome - one outside the ditch and the other just inside it. Having emerged from under the trees, the clearing in the wood from there to point O 007 207 starB has very long grass. After that, there is not much problem. In retrospect, it would have been better to take the detour on the country roads around the wood, as described in Track # 2900, and approach Cupidstown Wood from the south.
