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 1262th highest place in Ireland. Mullaghmeen is the highest point in county Westmeath.

- 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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1050/comment/18815/
