The Santry rises in the semi-rural areas of Harristown and Dubber in County Dublin, near St. Margaret's and Dublin Airport. One branch can be found at the end of a small lane, now cut off by new road development. The river then flows along to the south of Dublin Airport, near the new Dublin Bus Harristown depot. It passes, for most of its course out in the open, through Sillogue in Ballymun, Santry, and Coolock. In Coolock, the river forms a central feature, and features ornamental ponds, running past the Stardust Memorial Park, and through the grounds of Cadbury's. It then enters Raheny, flowing along Edenmore, past St. Joseph's Hospital, passing through the village centre, along the grounds of Manor House School, and then after a brief culverting in the Bettyglen Estate, reaches the sea, where its mouth forms part of the eastern "lagoon" behind North Bull Island.

The dotted line on the above sketch is an artificial link made by Dublin Corporation between the Santry River and the Naniken River, to allow handling of any flooding in either watercourse. As part of the management of the river, the Santry is one of the third tier rivers being numerically mapped within the Greater Dublin Strategic Drainage Study, with floodplain hydraulics computed (the other rivers being the Carrickmines, Deansgrange, Poddle, Camac, Finglas and Mayne, along with one of the two second tier waterways, the Tolka).
