|What's Stangmore Like?|
Stangmore Park is located
alongside the A29, one mile south of the hilltop
town of Dungannon. It is in a pleasant rural
location, boarded by the towns rugby ground, a
housing estate and green fields. Looking on from the
A29 the ground has a small floodlit training pitch,
a large car park, plus a modern clubhouse building
with a first floor viewing lounge and a low single
storey social club which unusually sit outside the
boundary of the ground.
|In a town with a passion
for sport, with good facilities on offer at both
Dungannon’s Rugby and GAA stadiums, it is the
football ground which leads the way. Having removed
the original pitchside floodlights and replaced them
with more powerful corner floodlights during 2011,
Stangmore Park’s current capacity of 5,000 with 600
seats is sufficient for Irish Premier League
fixtures. However with space restricted on the North
side of the ground it is likely any future
improvement in facilities will be by building a new
stand at the East (away) end of the ground.
|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
|Visitors are allocated the Moy Road (West) end of the ground. This is a narrow flat standing area behind the goal, which has a low cover the length of the penalty area. There are a number of columns and a deep rooftop advertising board which may impede your view, however the cover does at least keep the rain out!|
|Where To Drink?|
|There is a Social Club at the ground. Otherwise there does not seem to be much else around in the immediate vicinity. Dungannon town centre is around a 25 minute walk away.|
|How To Get There By Car & Where To Park|
|There are no train
services to Dungannon, however Goldline Bus Service
273 From Belfast Europa
Bus Centre to Omagh passes the ground on the right hand side and stops at Dungannon's town centre bus station. Alternatively Goldline Bus Service 278 Dublin to Londonderry can be picked up from Armagh Bus Station. This also passes the ground on the way to Dungannon Bus Station. Local Ulster Bus service 72 Armagh to Dungannon passes by Stagmore Park, though the weekend timetable is restricted.
Directions to the Ground from the Bus Station:
There is a supermarket next to the bus station which has a taxi rank, otherwise its a brisk 20 minute walk to the ground. From the bus station, turn right into Railway Road, follow into Barrack Street. At the mini roundabout follow the road into Brooke Street and Wellington Road. This road leads uphill to the A29 Moy Road. Follow the road down the hill, past the petrol station and Dungannon Rugby Ground. Stangmore Park will then appear to your left.

|If you require hotel
accommodation in the area then first try a hotel
booking service provided by Football Hotels who
are powered by Activehotels, who specialise in
locating accommodation near or within a short
travelling distance of the football ground. They
also have the added advantage over some other
hotel booking services that you pay on
departure. Yes this

through them, but it will go to help with the
running costs of keeping the Guide going.
