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 1264th highest place in Ireland. Mullaghmeen is the highest point in county Westmeath.

Westmeath County Top
by mazamegaza  18 Feb 2016
After a dander up Corn Hill we tried to find Mullaghmeen as part of our County top odyssey and even armed with maps we had a struggle but its worth the effort! The beech forest is beautiful, even in February. Beech are not native and their large canopy restricts the growth of local fauna but putting that aside, its a lovely walk. There are path maps in the car park and i would recommend printing one off as we got confused about where the summit cairn was. We got there in about 40 minutes from the car park, meeting lots of dog walkers along the well maintained paths. For the smallest County Top it was a pleasant surprise!
