The R111 shadows the Grand Canal, with space for a hypothetical dual carriageway.

The R111 forms an important part of the Dublin Outer Orbital Route, carrying traffic from the eastern side of the city towards the routes out to the west. For most of its route, it runs along the southern bank of the Grand Canal.

It starts at the junction with the R131 in Irishtown. The R111's status as a major route is hindered by the narrow crossing of the Dodder on London Bridge, and then under the low bridge at South Lotts.

At Macartney Bridge, the road begins to shadow the Grand Canal. It meets several key routes, before handing over most of its traffic at Suir Road. From here the R111 moves from its wide and straight alignment to a more claustrophobic affair, as it passes through Kilmainham and over the Camac River. Here it merges with the South Circular Road.

After a brief bit of 1980s gyratory at the R148, the R111 squeezes through Islandbridge, ending at a junction with the R109 near Phoenix Park.

There have been several plans to cover up the Grand Canal, and use the space created to build a dual carriageway. The General Traffic Plan (Schaechterle) called for this road to be D3 and grade separated. The 1973 plan had it running at-grade, but still as a dual carriageway.
