As with all E-roads in the United Kingdom, the E 01 is not signed. It begins in Larne, County Antrim
County Antrim
as the A8. A short section of the A8 at Newtownabbey
is under motorway regulations and is signed as the A8(M) motorway. This motorway joins the much longer M2 motorway to Belfast. At Belfast, the road becomes the A12 Westlink, a dual carriageway which links to the M1 motorway. The A1 leaves the motorway near Lisburn
and continues south as a dual carriageway. This takes the road over the border into Ireland. Ireland[edit]

in Ireland The dual carriageway continues in Ireland as the N1, which from Ballymascanlon
in County Louth
County Louth
onwards is under motorway regulations and signed as the M1 motorway. The road follows the M1 south to Dublin, where, in the northern suburbs, it meets Dublin's ring road, the M50 motorway. It follows the M50 through the outer suburbs of Dublin
until it meets the short M11 motorway near Shankill. The M11 continues as a dual carriageway, the N11, south of Bray
in County Wicklow. This section passes through the Glen of the Downs Nature Reserve. This section of the road is dual carriageway or motorway to south of Gorey
in County Wexford. Following this, the remainder of the route in Ireland is single carriageway and passes through several towns and villages. The N11 continues to Wexford, where at a junction outside the town it meets the N25 road from Cork. The route follows the N25 to its final destination in Ireland of Rosslare Europort. All remaining sections of the N11 (and therefore E01) outside of Dublin
are due to be replaced by motorways or dual carriageways.[1][2][3] Spain[edit]

and Vigo, continuing south towards Tui. The E 01 follows the motorway A-55 near the city of Tui to the Portuguese border at the river Minho. Portugal[edit]
