Approaching Carnaween from the west, Cloghmeen Hill side you will encounter a stretch of the Bluestacks Way. It leaves the valley road to the north at a ruined house around 85178880 G, goes along the crest of the ridge to a stile at around 86818833 H where it then takes off East. As of 2007 there is only a bare trace of a path following the route of the waymarked way.

One way to access the summit and Cloghmeen Hill is to start at the house mentioned.
South of the summit there is the peaceful reed filled water of Carn Lough where this picture was taken. It is surprisingly steep from the Lough to the summit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/409/comment/2853/
