The R281 road is a regional road in Ireland linking Kinlough and Glenfarne in County Leitrim.[2]

From Kinlough the road passes along the south shore of Lough Melvin before joining the R282 near Rossinver. After about 1 km (0.6 mi) the R281 leaves the R282 towards Kiltyclogher.[1] In Kiltyclogher, a monument to Seán Mac Diarmada, a leader of the 1916 Easter Rising, occupies the roundabout junction with the R283.[3] From here the road continues southeast to end in Glenfarne. The road is 30.8 km (19.1 mi) long.[1]
