The R821 road is a regional road in south Dublin, Ireland. The road starts at the junction with the R115 (Willbrook Road) in Rathfarnham and passes through Nutgrove before terminating at Churchtown.

Route[edit]

  • The road starts at the T-junction with the R115 (Willbrook Road) beside the well known The Yellow House pub. The road heads in an easterly direction and is known as Grange Road.
  • About 350 metres further the Grange Road turns off in a southerly direction as the R822 while the R821 continues easterly as Nutgrove Avenue.
  • The route passes the shopping center and retail park in Nutgrove after a crossroad with local roads.
  • The route terminates at a triangle in Churchtown where it connects with the R112 (Upper Churchtown Road) and a local road (Beaumont Avenue).

A westbound bus lane is present along the entire route while after Nutgrove there is also a bus lane heading east until the end of the route in Churchtown. There are a number of Dublin Bus routes along the R821:
