The R241 road is a regional road in Ireland. It is a coastal road on the eastern Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal.[2] The road forms part of the Wild Atlantic Way.[3] Part of the road is on the Inishowen Head Loop walking trail.[4]

The R241 travels northeast from the R238 at Moville. The road travels along the western shore of Lough Foyle via Greencastle before ending near Inishowen Head at Shrove.[1] The Shrove Lighthouse is located here. Originally built with two towers in 1837, one operational tower now remains.[5] The R241 is 9.0 km (5.6 mi) long.[1]
