The R805 passing Hanlon's Corner.

The R805 forms a route out of Dublin, running through Stoneybatter. Part of it is named Old Cabra Road and, as this name would suggest, it's not a recommended route. In fact part of it is only possible to drive in the northbound direction.

It starts at James Joyce Bridge, which is the newest addition to the route. It then runs up Blackhall Place, with a spur to the R804 forming part of the series of one-way restrictions in this area. The southbound route became buses and taxis only in 2003, creating a public transport priority corridor, with an alternative route via North King Street - but that road is unclassified.

Afterwards the road rises through Stoneybatter and along Prussia Street to Hanlon's Corner. It then merges with the R147 at Cabra Cross to create a major route out of the city.

This is not the end of the road, however, as the R805 continues north, around Cabra and Broombridge. It ends at junction with the R102 near Cardiff's Bridge.

Under the Dublin Transportation Study, Old Cabra Road would have become a major route out of the city. This would have met an upgraded North King Street. The lower section of the R805 at Blackhall Place would have been for local traffic only.
