Beautiful quite spot for varying grades of walks, (we visited in May). We took the White Walk one of the longest. Beautiful scenery along the way and plenty of nice scenes to snap if you like photography. One or two parts of the walk were steep but a nice challenge. The roads to the forest are typical country roads and... More

Love to walk here with the family and dogs. Beautiful place and beautiful views. Not that greatly signposted and the roads aren't great, but once there it's fantastic. There are a choice of walks depending on your experience and the length of walk you want. A track suitable for buggies. My kids aged 7 & 9 like to build dens,... More

We just heard about this place last week. Apparently it's the largest planted beech forest in Western Europe. As we were planning to be in the Mullingar area on Sunday afternoon (20th) we decided to go. The weather was glorious. We enjoyed a fine walk through the woods, and reached the high point from where we had great views. Stopped... More

Beautiful deciduous forest ,with a couple of well marked walks. Forest is so on new you can easily go off track without getting lost. Access is completely free. Might be worth getting directions in Oldcastle. if you like that and you love travel maybe you will like this…#ramblingstampcollectors

Took a trip up to Mullaghmeen Forest today. This is the largest Beech Forest in Ireland. Situated 5 miles/ 8 km from Oldcastle, Mullaghmeen has 1,000 acres of forest. Picnic tables at the car park are a useful addition. There are long and short walks depending on level of fitness. We went for the longest walk (white) which is indicated... More

Mullaghmeen is the highest point in County Westmeath. Wonderful walks and points of interest along the way. The cairn on top of Mullaghmeen Hill (261 meters, 859 feet) is the highest point in the county. Great views over Lough Kinale and Lough Sheelin. European beech is the predominant species in the forest and provides a fantastic backdrop for moss, ferns... More

County Westmeath is no usually associated with hills but Mullaghmeen hugs the north east corner of the county like a territorial visitor from Co. Cavan. These hills have been planted with acres of dessiduous trees, beechs, oaks etc.....Beatifully laid out walks for all levels and fantastic views of the surrounding counties from the cairn on the summit, including majestic Lough...
