The B80 is a medium-length B-road in south Northern Ireland.
It starts at the B46 TOTSO in Fintona. The road heads along the western section of Main Street to a T-junction where it TOTSOs itself. The road to the left leads to the B122 (and according to some maps is a spur of that road) and the B80 continues to the right.
The B80 now heads southwest and quickly reaches open country. It follows Tattymoyle Road, which is largely straight for the first couple of miles but then bends to the right to lessen the gradient as it goes round the edge of a hill. The road straightens out once more and reaches the B107 at a triangular junction, where the B80 has to TOTSO right. A short distance further on the road enters Tempo. Interestingly, this village is the original eastern end of the road; presumably it ended on an unclassified road in the village centre as the other roads in the area did not exist on classification in 1923. The road had been extended east to Fintona by the mid-1920s.
On the far side of Tempo the B535 bears off to the left and shortly afterwards the B140 does the same. The B80 now bends round to the right to head westwards. Eventually it reaches Enniskillen and reaches a roundabout on the A32 relief road, where the B80 ends. Before the relief road was built in the 2010s the B80 continued ahead along what is now the A32 to end at traffic lights on the A4 to the south of the town centre.
