The N60 road is a national secondary road in Ireland, linking Roscommon town to Castlebar, County Mayo. The main towns along the route are Roscommon, Ballymoe, Castlerea, Ballyhaunis, Claremorris, Balla, and Castlebar.
The quality of the road varies significantly, with County Roscommon having a better alignment. The worst section of the route is between Castlebar and Claremorris where some stretches are dangerously narrow. This section of the route is also the busiest with up to 7,000 vehicles daily. The N60 in County Mayo has seen very little improvement works carried out since the 1970s. The road remains almost the same except for the Claremorris relief road which was constructed in two stages between 1988 and 2000. This relief road removes the majority of the 7,000 vehicles daily from Claremorris town centre, in particular Mount St which was once notorious for tailbacks, as traffic had to give way to the busy N17 which once passed through the town.
A new route between Castlebar and Claremorris has been in planning for many years and will bypass the village of Balla when constructed.
The official description of the N60 from the Roads Act 1993 (Classification of National Roads) Order 2012  reads:
- N60: Roscommon — Castlebar, County Mayo
- Between its junction with N61 at Cloonbrackna in the county of Roscommon and its junction with N5 at Humbert Way in the town of Castlebar in the county of Mayo via Racecourse Road, Lissagallan and Drumatemple in the county of Roscommon: Ballymoe Bridge at the boundary between the county of Roscommon and the county of Galway: Ballymoe in the county of Galway: Harristown; Saint Patrick Street and Main Street at Castlerea; Fortaugustus, Ballinlough and Scregg in the county of Roscommon: Coolnafarna, Devlis; Abbey Street, Bridge Street and Clare Street at Ballyhaunis; Hazelhill, Brickeens, Cuilmore and Clare; Inner Relief Road and Mount Street in the town of Claremorris; Lugatemple, Brees, Balla, Moat, Manulla Bridge, Breaghwy and Kilkenny in the county of Mayo: and Station Road in the town of Castlebar.
