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 1004th highest place in Ireland. Cupidstown Hill is the most westerly summit in the Dublin area. Cupidstown Hill is the highest point in county Kildare.

Picture: Gate access to trig point
 
5 minutes walk to the top of Kildare

Some changes since our last visit to this summit 5 years ago. The landowner has installed a gate leading to the field and the trig-point marker. And he/she has very thoughtfully installed a bench so that summiteers can sit in the sunshine and enjoy the view.

There was no evidence of fly-tipping or dumping. It's all been cleaned up and made for a pleasant walk up the hill. At the summit area, walk past the barrier and through the telecommunications mast compound until you reach the inner fence. Then walk around to the right and you'll find a gate (made from a plastic pallet) giving access to the field and the trig point. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1051/comment/24209/
