Looking towards Dalkey Island from the R119
The R119 runs from the R113 at Templehill, Blackrock, in County Dublin to the M11 at Old Connaught, Bray, in County Wicklow by way of Monkstown, Dún Laoghaire, Dalkey, Killiney, and Shankill.
The northern and central sections of the route lie close to the coast and offer excellent views out over the Irish Sea, which explains why the R119 here is lined by some of the most desirable property in the country. Once past Killiney beach, the road turns inland and passes through more mundane suburbs.
At Shankill the R837 (a former section of the N11) runs in on the right from Junction 3 of the M11 and the final 2.3-km stretch of the R119 – from here to the terminus of the road at the Wilford roundabout (part of Junction 5 of the M11) – also follows the old N11, with the R761 forming the onward route into Bray town centre.
