Cross Guns Pub on the R162


Northwest to southeast the route starts in at a junction with the N54 in Monaghan, County Monaghan. It continues southwards through Ballybay before crossing into County Cavan at Shercock.

It veers southwest through Kingscourt and enters County Meath, passing through Nobber. South of Nobber the N52 National secondary road joins it from the west and leaves eastwards at a staggered junction. (This is unusual in the R162 regional road has priority and also a much higher standard of road than the National route).

It passes southwards through Wilkinstown, Kilberry and passes Navan Racecourse before terminating in Navan at the R147.
