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 1267th 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.
