|Route outline (key)|
While generally fairly close to a straight north-south route, the R108 has been diverted since the late 1980s for 2 km east-west around runway 10/28 at Dublin Airport. The alternative of a short tunnel was felt to present an unacceptable security risk for quite a minor road.
Once north of the airport, the road quickly becomes very rural in character.
