    Santa’s Express: great!!
    Santa’s Express was brilliant. From the elves to the train to the lovely Santa and Mrs Claus. Just brilliant all round. My children loved it. Lots to do and see and the elves were very enthusiastic and engaging with the children.

    10 out of 10 - wonderful family day
    10 out of 10 - a little gem in Donegal. Perfect for a family day out! Everything is so tastefully done. We’ll be back in the very near future and likely on a regular basis.

    Wonderful family day out
    Had a fabulous day in Oakfield Park. Absolutely beautiful gardens and features. Loads to see and do. We would recommend the guided tour. Bronwyn was very knowledgable and had an infectious personality. Lovely restaurant caters for all tastes and happens to be licensed too😀👍🏻. Looking forward to our next visit❤️

    Great day
    Great day with lots to do train is fab.. Would be better if easter bunny was around the park rather than an extra charge. An egg hunt for the kids would be a good addition. Would recommend the Easter experience.

    🐰 Easter Express 🐰
    🐰 Easter Express 🐰 Just like the Santa Express, it was a very well organised event with so much for kids to do, and of course the highlight of the train ride around the beautiful park. Fantastic facilities, minimal queues, all ages and abilities catered for. Wonderful staff, all in character for the kids. A brilliant day out. Would highly recommend. 10/10 ⭐️

    Easter event
    Visited here for the easter event with my husband and 2 year old. Having done the Christmas event previously I knew we wouldn’t be disappointed. The event was really well organised, lots of characters in costume including Peppa Pig, lots of garden games including snakes and ladders, potato and spoon race etc, face painting and even a craft station. The play park is large enough to accommodate a lot of children. The train ride is always lovely, takes about 10 minute which led us to the start of the treasure hunt. The hunt led to the Easter bunny where you were given the opportunity to meet him and get a photo. It was an additional €10 for a photo and I didn’t feel you were given much of a choice if you wanted one or not. The two boys posted outside the Easter bunnys room were very friendly and great with the children, providing treats if successfully competed the treasure hunt. We ate in the cafe, service was very friendly and quick, food was tasty but I did find it very expensive for what it is. Oak field park is always a great day out for all the family, I have no doubt we’ll do further seasonal activities here.

    Santa Express
    Santa Express at Oakfield Park. We had an amazing evening!! There were 4 adults and 3 kids in our group and we just had to write a review to compliment the staff at Oakfield (particularly Santa and the Elves) and the overall experience. We ate lunch in Buffers and it was lovely. Again all the staff where very friendly and welcoming and the food was delicious. The kids were truly amazed by Santa and he was very patient and friendly towards them. Well done all at Oakfield Park for a truly amazing experience for the kids. We will definitely be back next year xx

I have returned from a very brief visit at oak field park today. We are from Donegal Town and would visit the park numerous times every year and it has never been as busy! The car park was full and we were advised that there was an overflow carpark on the other side of the main road in a field but we were able to find a space. We are a family of 3 adults and 2 kids. We queued for 20 minutes at the restaurant only to be told the kitchen had just closed for the next 30 to 40 minutes. The crowds of people were outrageous. There was absolutely no covid restrictions in place. The queues for the train was extremely long. We were there no longer than 30 minutes and had to leave because we felt so uncomfortable. We let the girl at the ticket office know and she was apologetic and gave us a family pass to come back by the end of the season, which is over in 2 weeks! She said herself that she has never seen it so busy as this year. Very very disappointed. I know the park is large but surely the 200 people outdoor rule

Hi Laura We absolutely respect your views on this but have to say that we are totally in disagreement and find the feedback both inaccurate and potentially damaging to one of the few attractions in the county that can provide more than adequate social distance. Even on a very busy day like the one when you visited, the spread of people is around 5 per acre. At hotspots like the restaurant, sometimes we have to stop hot food to disperse queues. For that we are very sorry, but we will always offer drinks and pre-prepared food as an option. It takes around 4 hours to get around the park here. The queues come and go but there is so much more to see on foot. It is normal to wait up to 20 minutes for the train , which is not extraordinary as that is as often as it can go with the sanitation between each run and newly compartmentalised carriages. In fact, a 20 minute queue is not unusual anywhere in Donegal at the moment given how busy we are as a county. We are very pleased that a staff member gave you a Family Pass to return again in the future as a goodwill gesture. Our season goes on until the end of September, not for another two weeks as you stated. Overall we really feel this one star review is both unusual and unfair. Like every business, we are doing our bit to keep going, provide employment and make people as happy as ever. Our recent reviews aside from this one are testament to that. Hopefully when you next visit you will be able to observe our efforts, make us of all the space afforded to you here, and possibly you might consider editing your review. We really hope you enjoy your day here.

Kids enjoyed the place but service very slow. Restaurant said it would be an hour to serve food & then told they ran out of hot food. One girl in an ice cream van serving very slowly, she needed someone else to help with the queue.

After coming to the park for many years we found the upper gardens now closed, for me this was the best part. Having already coughed up €40 I would need to pay and extra €7 for a tour, something I would have had before and viewed in my own time to enjoy and not by guided tour which would bore young kids who don't understand why we can't rest and take a break. I feel this is a total cash in on the staycation.

The upper gardens are not closed - they are available to visit by guided tour for €2 each for reasons beyond our control. That’s €2! I’m not sure how this can be perceived as “cashing in” when it costs more money than comes in. We have had fantastic feedback from this addition. It’s true that nobody complains when prices remain static for the past 4 years despite the fact that the park is constantly being developed and added to. The offering now is so much greater than when prices were the same four years ago. Did you actually do a tour to find out that breaks or tests aren’t allowed? I’m sure the guide would allow breaks if required on a tour that lasts over an hour.

Overall a great experience from start to finish. The tour of the upper garden was outstanding and the tour guide Bronwyn made it an even better experience leaving no stone unturned throughout and was very attentive. The food was delicious and the staff were friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend checking this place out, it's a real hidden gem worth a visit!

Top class. Great day out. From the girl in the ticket booth to the staff in the restaurant and at the train they were all excellent. Just as they should be - friendly, bright and cheery. The place was lovely - immaculately kept and lovely to walk round. The train ride was fun and the maze was good craic. The food was good too and not unreasonable. The walled garden was beautiful. The only small criticism I would make was the the music being played in the restaurant area was too loud and not in keeping with the atmosphere of the place. Turn it down and change it to traditional Irish or classical. But apart from that I’d give Oatfield top marks.

Our first visit to Oakfield and were very impressed. There are beautiful walks and something interesting around every corner. Too many to list. The fairy tree and giant are great fun but we also loved the wood carvings around the park. We went as a couple but there were lots of families with kids all having a great time without it feeling like you can’t enjoy it because it’s crowded with kids. The highlight was the maze which we loved and spent ages trying to figure out.
Would definitely recommend if you want a nice walk in an interesting beautiful garden.

The grounds are in perfect condition and very nicely laid out. There was a bit of a queue for the train ride, but they had them running more frequently so the wait was not too long. There is a nice cafe onsite too with hot dishes for lunch. Plenty of outdoor seating too. Great day out for the family

Quite pricey for a group of five adults (€70). Good day out though. Noticed a lot of litter in the maze. Perhaps some of the young staff doing nothing on the station platform could be better employed lifting the rubbish?

Why have I never heard of this place before? It’s brilliant! We stumbled across it while looking for something to do whilst staying in Co. Donegal. We highly recommend it for everyone!
The restaurant/cafe is fabulous. Great food, lovely coffee and charming staff. Tables were outside, but covered, and spotlessly clean. There’s a great kids’ play park that you can see from the tables at the cafe and music playing in the background. Total holiday mood! Kids’ portions were huge.
The train was great. It brings you all around the park. I’d recommend going on it to get your bearings before having a walk around the grounds. Lots to see: sculptures, a maze (which was great), a folly and a fairy tree on which to hang your wish (we were given a label and a pencil at the entrance to write our wish- nice touch).
Toilets were sparkling clean. We finished off with some ice cream from the little truck. These were possibly the biggest servings of ice cream we’ve ever had and went to waste as we couldn’t finish them. We could have shared one between 3 of us. They should consider doing a small cone for kids!
Honestly a great visit.
