The junction of R811 and Clanbrassil Street at Leonard's Corner.

The R811 is the formal name for Dublin's South Circular Road, so-called because it once followed the southern boundary of the city.

It mostly follows the Grand Canal, but unlike the North Circular Road, the R811 isn't regarded as a major route. That's because, for most of its route, it has the R111 following it. When past plans for Dublin talked about turning Grand Canal into a dual carriageway, it was always the R111 they were talking about.

The R811 begins at a junction with Leeson Street, the former N11, and close to both the Inner Orbital and the Outer Orbital. It runs along Adelaide Place, with the eastbound side taking a slightly convoluted route around the one-way system at Harcourt Road. This section of road was once planned to be a major route into (but not out of) the city.

Beyond Kelly's Corner, it takes a tree-lined route round towards Rialto. There is a rare example of an inner-city roundabout at Herberton Road. It then crosses the Luas, and turns left to get around Old Kilmainham.

Here the road ends and lets the R111 take the baton, completed South Circular Road's journey to Islandbridge.
