Ballaghaderreen ( ) is a town in County Roscommonmarker, Irelandmarker. It is located on the N5 National primary road. The town has become a bottleneck on the N5 route in recent years and the opening of the Charlestown bypass down the road has exacerbated the problem as traffic is funneled into Ballaghaderreen at a much faster rate. The Irish meaning of the town name is 'The way (Bealach) of the little oak (DoirĂ­n)'.

The town of Ballaghaderreen was located in County Mayomarker until 1899, when it was transferred to Roscommon by the Local Government Act 1898. Gaelic games supporters are split between those who support the Roscommon county team and the local Gaelic Athletic Association team which plays in the Mayo league.

In 1860 Ballaghaderreen Cathedral was dedicated as the cathedral for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Achonry.
