Mullingar : Michelin's recommendations
The county town of Westmeath is an important agricultural market town in the heart of a region known for raising fine livestock. It is also prized by anglers, set as it is on a loop of the Royal Canal off the west bank of the River Brosna, between Lough Ennel and Lough Owel. During his student days, James Joyce lived here for a time, when his father was in charge of reorganising the electoral rolls.
