This is a very confusing junction for novices wanting to travel West from Lucan towards Celbridge, who might wish to travel on the old road avoiding N4. I attempted this in May 2012, passing under the N4 but being immediately confronted by a No Entry sign on the R835 from Celbridge. So I followed the road round, passing onto L1018 without spotting the loop back onto N4. L1018 meanders past a number of golf courses before reaching R120. Instinct told me to turn Right through Adamstown, but this really goes too far South with no right turns possible (other than no through roads) until Newcastle where R405 will eventually take you up to Celbridge. Returning from Celbridge to Lucan is easy; the old Dublin Road passes the Tougher station before clearly signposting the minor road on the right (R835) to get you back to Lucan via the Dodsboro interchange.
