Milltownpass (Irish: Bealach Bhaile an Mhuilinn) is a village in County Westmeath, Ireland. It is located in the south of the county on the R446 regional road (formerly the N6 national primary route). The old route was replaced by a dual-carriageway in 2006, bypassing the village. Milltownpass is the second largest village in the parish of Rochfortbridge. It was one of the first villages in Ireland to have its own electricity supply: a mill on the Milltown River providing power to the village long before rural electrification.

The village is located close to the Milltownpass Bog. The Milltown River begins at the north side of the village and flows south to the County Offaly border where it splits into the Monagh River.

Milltownpass has a number of services available to the wide public including; Grennan's pub, social services- Milltownpass community Centre, Milltownpass GAA, St. Joseph's National Primary School, companies such as Cole Arc Engineers, Wrights Windows and Skyclad. Newly added is Grennans funeral home.

The local GAA team is Milltownpass GAA.
