Directions to Armagh
From Belfast, take the M1 motorway south; take the slip road (M12) to Armagh; follow the road-signs around Portadown to Armagh. Approaching Armagh, go straightover at the first roundabout, then first left at the second roundabout. At the first and second and third traffic lights, keep in the right lane. Go straight through the fourth set of traffic lights – following the sign for Enniskillen. Navan is just 3 miles from Armagh on the right hand side and is clearly sign-posted. There is plenty of parking space, both for cars and buses.
From Dublin, come to Armagh via Newry. At the traffic lights at the bottom of the steep hill into Armagh, turn left, following the signs for Enniskillen. At the next traffic lights go straight ahead. Follow the road for about 3 miles and Navan is clearly signposted on the right hand side of the road.
