Cupidstown Hill (from Irish Cnoc Bhaile Cupid, meaning 'hill of Cupidstown'), at 379 metres (1,243 ft), is the highest point in County Kildare, Ireland, and lies on the fringes of the Wicklow Mountains, 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.
