Castletown Geoghegan (Irish: Baile Chaisleáin Mag Eochagán) in County Westmeath, Ireland, lies south west of Lough Ennell near the county town of Mullingar. Castletown was the seat of the Geoghegan family of the medieval Barony of Moycashel, County Westmeath. The family were descendants of the Southern Ui Neill. They were major landholders in south Westmeath prior to the Cromwellian invasion, the Down Survey and ensuing Plantations that followed that and the later War of the Three Kingdoms. They lost considerable portion their estates to Gustavus Lambart (later created Earl of Cavan) through confiscation even prior to the publication of the Down Survey. The abundant productivity of the rich grazing being so self-evident he contrived to procure it early in the piece.

The abundant productivity of the rich grazing being so self-evident he contrived to procure it early in the piece. The Restoration resettlement Acts of the late 17th century favored the retention by some of the newly esconsced Cromwellian Adventurers and Undertakers and some to their traditional owners. Consequently, only relative smallholdings of the rich grazing lake land was restored to the Geoghegans. It didn't help that case for a greater proportion of restoration that many of his fellow allies of the "Irish of Meath" refused to sign the mandatory pledges and undertakings to the King, Parliament and the established church. Political acumen was not their strong suit. The Geoghegan leaders were mostly headed for exile and Connaught. Lilliput, on the shores of Lough Ennel is in Dysart, approximately 5k from Castletown Geoghegan. Nearby Middleton Park House, a magnificent 19th century Georgian house and estate, is now open to the general public. (en)
