Located just one hour and 15 minutes from Dublin, ​​Castlepollard is a historic and bustling town, flanked by unspoilt Irish countryside yet with all the connections needed to make it a desirable place to live and to work.

This website has been commissioned by Castlepollard Local Development - in conjunction with Westmeath County Council and Westmeath Community Development - to promote our local community & economy, celebrate our heritage and to share our vision for the future.
