Oakfield Park is one of Donegal’s best-loved attractions. Our award-winning gardens and parklands are the perfect place to spend a wonderful day out in Donegal.
Whether you’re on a Wild Atlantic Way adventure or a first-time visitor to Donegal, there’s so much to see and explore. Our beautiful landscape of parkland, woodlands, lakes and formal gardens has everything you need to entertain the whole family.
Spend hours exploring the grounds at your leisure: from walled gardens to ponds, lakes, a lakeside Nymphaeum, our new hedge maze, heritage trees and sculptures. Children can make a wish at Oakfield Park’s Faerie tree, while navigating their way through adventures on extensive walks and trails.
Our crowning glory is a 4.5km narrow gauge railway with a diesel and steam train operating passenger trips daily. This is a magical way to explore the park’s gardens as the train passes through flower meadows, beautiful woodlands, willow tunnels, oak circles, boardwalks, heritage trees, a wooden causeway and sparkling streams and lakes.
After a day rambling around the parklands, you can refuel in Buffers Garden Restaurant, which is open daily and serves a delicious selection of home baked goodies, light bites and meals – all created with produce from the park’s gardens.
Come and experience why Oakfield Park was voted one of the top five parks in the whole of Ireland in the Irish Times “Best Day Out.”
The gardens will reopen in April 2019. Information, opening times and pricing can be found on the Information & Location page.
Special events will be running throughout 2019, details of which will appear on the Events and News pages.
Or why not become a pass-holder and visit the park as many times as you like throughout the season? Our Oakfield Park Annual and Gold Passes offer excellent value and are available here, but numbers are limited!
