The R839 is a very short road in west Dublin.

It has been bypassed on both sides, and for most of its route it can only be driven in the westbound direction. However it does have the distinction of serving Kilmainham Gaol - a historic feature and a recent tourist attraction.

With this and the car park for the Irish Museum of Modern Art both positioned at the same junction, this end of the road has had a major refurbishment.

The R839 is historic itself. It was part of the N7, the main route west, until the Chapelizod Bypass opened in 1987. Its narrow alignment suggests it has been a major route for much longer than that.

Despite its short length, the R839 does get the dignity of having a spur. The short spur connects Inchicore Road to the R148; the former N4.
