Towns of Westmeath
Mullingar —County Westmeath
The County Town of Westmeath, Mullingar is a thriving business, administrative and industrial centre. It is located on the River Brosna and midway between Lough Ennell, Owel and Derravaragh, which service the amenity needs of the town and is encircled by the Royal Canal which with its locks links Dublin with the River Shannon. This canal is now navigable to Abbeyshrule in neighbouring County Longford.
Famous for beefsteak and bachelors, Mullingar's sporting facilities, pubs, restaurants, nightlife and accommodation are second to none.
