N55 road passing the local pub in Ballykeeran

Ballykeeran, (Irish: Bealach Caorthainn, meaning "road of the rowan trees") is a small village in County Westmeath, Ireland, near Glassan. It is located on the N55 road in the townland of Annagh overlooking Lough Ree.


There are tourist accommodations, a caravan park, and a local pub. There is also an old mill that sits on the Breensford River that runs through the village. At one stage in history this was used as an RIC Barracks.


The poet and philosopher James Patrick Gandy (1837–1920) was born here and is believed never to have left the village.
