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 1260th highest place in Ireland. Mullaghmeen is the highest point in county Westmeath.

Forest Walk
by scarecrow  27 Aug 2017
2nd CHP in one day - Trip from Slieve Na Calliagh to Mullaghmeen Forest Recreational Park is only 20 minutes. Follow sings to this park on google and you can't go wrong. We were in a 6 berth Camper and faced no challenges and car park plenty big. This is a forest walk with a short steep climb to summit. The only problem was some "joker" had changed the sign of cairn so we went wrong and and added an extra hour to our hike. More signage in this park would not go astray.
