The route of the A34 in green from Maguiresbridge (Co. Fermanagh) to the border on the outskirts of Clones (Co. Monaghan). The R183 is also shown (in red) which is the route's number in the Republic as it traverses the county, before finishing in Castleblaney.

The A34 is a road in County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. The route carries traffic from the A4 in Maguiresbridge, near Enniskillen through Lisnaskea and then Newtownbutler (connecting with the B533 to Wattlebridge on the A3) to near Clones in County Monaghan. The entire route is 15.2 miles long, however the last 1.2 miles lies in the Republic of Ireland, where is forms part of the R183 in Clones. The R183 then continues across County Monaghan, through Newbliss, Swan's Cross Roads and Ballybay, to Castleblaney, another border town near County Armagh.

In Clones the N54 links westwards via the A3 to Cavan and eastwards to Monaghan and becoming the N12 becoming the A3 to Armagh.

The road lies to the east of Upper Lough Erne. The section of the A34 between Lisnaskea and Newtownbutler once formed the old coach road between Dublin and Enniskillen.
