Amiens Street at the junction with Buckingham Street Lower.

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 north-eastwards out of the city centre.

At Buckingham Street Lower, it had been suggested a one-way triangle gyratory be created, but this hasn't happened. Instead the road continues to the Five Lamps junction, crossing the Royal Canal on Newcomen Bridge.

After crossing the Tolka on Annesley Bridge and passing Fairview Park on the right, it meets the R803 at Edge's Corner. The R105 then runs through Fairview and forks left at Clontarf Presbyterian Church, where it 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.
