The Showgrounds


Directions from Dublin side:

Entering Sligo on the dual carriageway (N4), follow the signs for town centre. Turn left at the first set of traffic lights. Continue on for approximately half a mile going up Churchill – the ground is on your right.

Directions From Donegal Side:

Entering Sligo on the N4, follow the signs for Dublin. Crossing the river at Hughes Bridge, keep in the left hand lane (right hand lane is right turn only). Once over the bridge, move into right hand lane until you reach the third set of lights where there is a turning lane. Take the right-hand turn and continue up Churchill to the ground.

Via Train or Bus:

Services run from Sligo from Dublin and Belfast and Dublin airport. Connolly Station offers a direct line to Sligo with the station behind the ground.

When exiting the train or bus station which are on the same campus, cross the road and continue straight ahead up Wolfe Tone Street. At the end of the street turn right up Churchill – the ground is a short distance up hill.


There is limited parking in the ground but it is restricted. Street parking available in the Church Hill area as well as a pay car park in the grounds of the Cathedral a short distance below.

Ticket prices are as follows:

Adults €15
Students and OAPs €10
Kids under 12 €5


There are three seated stands in the Showgrounds giving a total seated capacity of 4,000. There is no reserved seating so you can sit in whichever area of the ground you like. The largest of these is the Treacy Avenue stand which is on your left as you come through the entrance.

It has a capacity of 1,800 seats and is where the majority of home fans sit and therefore is normally first to fill up on matchnights.

Opposite that is the Jinks Avenue stand which has 900 seats and like the Treacy Avenue stand is fully covered.

Part of this stand is for away supports while ‘Forza Rovers’ are also situated here.

The third stand is the Volkswagen Bank End which is behind the goals at the opposite end to the entrance. It has 1,300 seats but is uncovered.

Selected merchandise is on sale at every game from a shop on your left as you come in the entrance. This includes jerseys, hats, t-shirts, scarfs, keyrings and much much more. To see our full range of merchandise and prices check out our online club shop on this website.
