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 1268th highest place in Ireland. Mullaghmeen is the highest point in county Westmeath.

Family excursion
by hazyview  4 Sep 2018
Highest point in Co Westmeath. We (family including a double-buggy!) climbed this one weekend by following one of the trails through the forest from the car park. However, there may be a better way, as I ended up scrambling through brambles & over a fence to find the actual summit. The great thing about climbing in this relatively flat area is that you can see huge distances after a fairly short climb and the landmarks you spot are easily identifiable.

- Nice Forest Walk
by paddyobpc  24 Jan 2017
Walk Date: 06 Jun 2016. Our second last of 8 CHP’s in two days we arrived at Mullaghmeen forest Park at 7:30pm to climb to Westmeath’s highest point Mullaghmeen. The route we took was a lovely forest walk to the summit and we had views of lough Sheelin from the top. We were back to the car after an hour so this would be one of the easier CHP’s and a nice walk too. The day wasn’t over yet though as we had planned to complete Meath also.
See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1050/comment/18815/

A walk in the woods
by Colin Murphy  30 May 2016
Followed jackill's route through the forest. Car to car it took us 90 minutes, although we did go astray for a while so I reckon you can do this in 70 minutes. It's a pleasant walk stroll through mature evergreens, with very little in the way of steep climbing - you could easily do it in trainers. Save it for a sunny Sunday afternoon.
