Streamstown (Irish: Baile an tSrutháin) is a town in County Westmeath, Ireland. It is close to the large town of Mullingar. Streamstown was historically called Ballintruhan, which is an anglicisation of its Irish name.
Streamstown railway station opened on 1 August 1851 and finally closed on 17 June 1963. Midland Great Western Railway from Athlone to Mullingar formed part of the main route between Dublin, County Galway and County Mayo until 1987, when Córas Iompair Éireann (CIE) closed the line and severing the rail link between Athlone and Mullingar. This section of disused railway may now have the potential to be developed as a walking/cycle route which would greatly benefit tourism in the local area.
