Cupidstown Hill (from Irish Cnoc Bhaile Cupid, meaning 'hill of Cupidstown') is a hill in Northeast County Kildare, Ireland, on the fringes of the Dublin Mountains. It lies 11.6 kilometres (7.2 mi) east of Naas.
At 379 metres it is the highest summit in Kildare, almost twice as high as the Hill of Allen. But Cupidstown Hill is lesser known than other summits in Kildare as it is dwarfed by nearby mountains such as Kippure. It is just above the village of Kilteel, and is the 872nd highest summit in Ireland.
