Towns of Westmeath
Multyfarnham —County Westmeath
This charming village, with top quality accommodation and restaurants was once a National Tidy Town winner. It still retains much of its original charm. The history of settlement here is closely linked with the founding of a Franciscan Friary in 1276. In the mid 1950's the Friars established an Agricultural College in Multyfarnham, which is still in existence today. Located in the grounds of the Friary are life-size Stations of the Cross. East of Multyfarnham a road leads to the Donore shore at Lough Derravaragh, a beautifully developed facility that caters for boating, fishing and swimming.
