Tucked away in the heart of Ireland, Westmeath has often been overlooked by natives and tourists. Yet one group is out to change that!

@Westmeathlife is a new Instagram group set up to share user generate photos of Westmeath and spread the word that this is a county not to be missed.

The account was set up just under a week ago and is carefully curating amazing images from amateur and professional photographers in the midlands. These photos are being shared on the Instagram feed along with accreditation to the original photographer.

People are encouraged to tag the account or DM them images to be shared on the feed or story! After all, the account is user generated and wants people to get out, explore the country and snap some great pictures!

The account is hoping to show the beauty of Westmeath and encourage people to visit the lakes, forests and walks of the Lake County.

Last year some creatives from Mullingar put together this amazing video on the town that took the internet by storm!
