Co. Westmeath, or An Iarmhí in Irish, is located in the midlands region of Ireland. It is home to Athlone Castle which, after a multi-million euro renovation, reopened in 2012 as a state-of-the-art, multi-sensory visitor experience. Our county town is Mullingar and we have a population of approximately 88,396. We look forward to helping you connect with your ancestors’ place of origin.
