|Distance:||8.1 km (5 miles)|
|Meets:||R147, N3, M50, R101, R805|
This leaves the R806 to serve all the places the R147 doesn't, including Castleknock and the residential side of Blanchardstown.
Despite it appearing to follow the R147, it never actually meets that road, but it does come very close to Ashtown Roundabout. Here the route of the road is dictated by Phoenix Park and Dublin Zoo, and known as Blackhorse Road.
At Blanchardstown, it then turns back on itself to run from the village to the new bypass. Here it used to end at the Blanchardstown Roundabout, but this is now a signalised junction. The sliproads to the M50 separate it from meeting the R147 again.
