The R105 is a route running from the centre of Dublin to Howth Head.
It starts at a junction with the R138 at the northern end of O'Connell Bridge, from where it first heads east along Eden Quay and then turns left to run behind the Custom House and past Busáras (the central bus station) and Dublin Connolly railway station on Amiens Street, and so northeastwards out of the city centre.
After passing Fairview Park on the right, the route forks left at Clontarf Presbyterian Church and follows Howth Road through Killester and Raheny to Kilbarrack. With Howth Head itself now clearly visible ahead and to our right (unless, of course, it's one of Dublin's "soft days"), the road continues along the northern edge of Dublin Bay to the isthmus connecting Howth to the mainland at Sutton. From here the R105 performs a circuit of the peninsula, returning to Sutton and the start of the loop at a junction with the R106.
