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.

Lhe lowest high point
by TommyV  2 Nov 2018
Westmeath has the lowest county high point of all of the counties but this is by no means the least spectacular hill. It is surrounded by a lovely beech forest with a number of trails. As it is in Westmeath which is a very flat county there are great views of the midlands, particularly out over Lough Sheelin. jackills directions are the directions I followed.
