Mullaghmeen is the highest point in Co. Westmeath but, at 261m, it has the distinction of being the lowest of all the county tops in Ireland. A walk to its summit is described in Paul Clements' book The Height of Nonsense (147-53). The hill also gives name to the townland (par. Foyran) in which it is located.   Mullaghmeen is the 1258th highest summit in Ireland. Mullaghmeen is the highest point in county Westmeath.

A Coillte forest like no other
by csd  9 May 2010
A hidden gem! Taking the turnoff noted in my other comment leads you into a Coillte forest like no other I've seen in Ireland. Instead of the usual serried ranks of dull conifer, the skilled navigator (you really do need a map to find this place!) is rewarded by a wonderful scattering of beech trees, the like of which probably covered large parts of the island up until the middle ages. wicklore's wonderfully evocative photo captures the dreamy ambience created by light filtering through the green canopy as you make your way to the summit area, so instead of repeating that I've chosen a summit view.

The summit area itself is a bit scruffy, betraying its history of being felled and replanted. That said, the views are wonderful, especially north to Lough Sheelin. If I hadn't been on a mad three county-top dash I'd have spent much longer in this amazing forest. Definitely one I'll be returning to. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1050/comment/4699/
