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 1258th highest place in Ireland. Mullaghmeen is the highest point in county Westmeath.

Unforested summit area a haven for wildlife
by Bunsen7  5 Sep 2018
Ironically most of the area in the close vicinity of the "summit" is not deeply forested. There are brambles and gorse allowing wildlife to flourish. My visit in summer meant a huge number of butterflies and bees in particular could be seen enjoying the flowering foxgloves.

The picture shows the track over the summit. There is some gorse encroaching on the path so this may perturb some children. Apart from that, a pleasant family walk with little ascent.

As I recall it, views from the summit are probably best to the north and west. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1050/comment/20056/
