The R584 road is a regional road in Ireland. It is a road in west County Cork.[1][2]

The R584 travels southwest from the N22 near Macroom via Ballingeary and following the course of the River Lee (including Lough Allua) to reach Gougane Barra.[1] Gougane Barra is a scenic area including a Forest Park and Gougane Lake, the source of the Lee.[3] The section of the road near Macroom provides access to The Gearagh, a River Lee nature reserve of rare alluvial forest, unique in Ireland.[4] From Gougane Barra, the road travels through the Pass of Keimaneigh[3] in the Shehy Mountains and onward to end at the N71 at Ballylickey. The R584 is 47.0 km (29.2 mi) long.[1]
