The R575 road is a regional road in Ireland. It is a road on the Beara Peninsula in County Cork.[1][2] The road forms part of the Wild Atlantic Way.[3] Parts of the road form part of the Beara Way walking trail.[4]

Hillsides by the road near Allihies are marked by ruins of former copper mines. The mines were at peak production in the 19th century but some were operational until 1962.[5]

The R575 travels northeast from the R572 via Allihies and along the Kenmare River inlet.[5] The road ends at the R571 near Eyeries. The R575 is 19.0 km (11.8 mi) long.[1]
