HOW TO GET THERE
We’re located inside the Maze Long Kesh development site (beside the old prison) on the West edge of Lisburn, just South of the Lisburn-to-Moira Road. We are only accessible via vehicle... ONLY via “GATE 3” at Maze Long Kesh, off the Halftown Road.
Drive west on the M1 motorway and leave on the Junction 7 off-slip for Sprucefield Lisburn, bearing left to turn toward Lisburn.
Proceed under the motorway overpass bridge, and turn left immediately at the traffic lights beneath it, heading west on Blaris Road for almost 2 miles.
At the Halftown Road T-junction, turn left, then immediately right to the security Gate 3 at Maze Long Kesh. A security attendant at the barrier can guide you from there.
There's only one main tarmac road directly to us on the site (passing the Air Ambulance on your right). Do *NOT* Stop to take photos of their red helicopters. Please keep driving.
Once you arrive at our hangar compound, please use the huge Overflow Car Park on the LEFT (as from early 2023 our hangar compound itself will be closed due to restoration work on our large Hangar Doors), thus please park in the car park at the other side of the road and walk over.
The pedestrian entrance is now around the LEFT SIDE of the LEFT hangar 1.
FROM OTHER DIRECTIONS
Make your way to the Sprucefield Lisburn roundabout and follow the directions above to Blaris Road.
