Getting to The Model

By Car: Coming from Dublin/Galway follow the N4 onto the Sligo ring road and through several sets of traffic lights until you cross Hughes Bridge. Take the right turn as you cross the bridge, onto Markievicz Road, (signposted for the Town Centre). Follow the one-way system, taking a left onto Connaghton Road. Continue straight up the hill and pull into the second car park on your right hand side - you will see The Model building. This is a metered daily rate car park and costs €3 per day, Mon-Sat 8.30am-6.30pm and Public Holidays 12-6pm. There is free parking outside of these times and all day Sunday.

Wheelchair Accessibility

The Model is wheelchair accessible. There are dedicated disabled parking spaces in Connaughton Road Car Park. When you enter The Model building there is a lift on the right hand side of the staircase to take you one floor down to Reception. There is also another lift situated next to Reception so you can easily visit our 1st Floor galleries.

Additionally there are two dedicated parking spaces at the side of The Model which are reached through our private driveway off The Mall. Access to the building from these spaces is via the ramp at The Mall Front Door. When you enter The Model building turn left, following the corridor along to the very end where there is a lift that will take you from Ground Floor to Upper Ground’s Reception area & Gallery Café and to our 1st Floor galleries.

To reach the Mall entrance by car follow the instructions above, but once you are on Connaughton Road take the second right onto Lake Isle Road, and then turn left at the cross roads onto The Mall. The Model driveway is on your left hand side about 500meters up The Mall and has a wheelchair accessibility sign.
