The R114 road is a regional road in south Dublin, Ireland. The road runs from the city centre to Brittas in remote southwest County Dublin via Rathmines, Rathgar, Rathfarnham, Knocklyon, Firhouse and the mountainous area of Boharnabreena. [2] The final stretch of the road runs just north of the border between County Dublin and County Wicklow, parallel to the Brittas River and a canal to the River Camac, which rises just to the north.

The official description of the R114 from the Roads Act 1993 (Classification of Regional Roads) Order 2006 [2] reads:
