Just back from our 1st visit to Oakfield Park with my wife, 3 year old and 3 month old. From the greeting at the gates right through to the table service in the restaurant the customer service was excellent.

I saw on trip advisor people mentioned the upper park was closed, but you are offered the tour of the upper park at the gatehouse as you drive in. We didn't take the tour, but tbh we still spent 4.5 hours in the lower park and i feel we hardly scratched the surface.

Sure the food in the restaurant wasn't fast food prices, but the quality of the food matched the price. My burger was very tasty.

My son had a ball and had lots of 1st experiences e.g going on a train, seeing a duck, seeing a swan in real life etc, no issues sitting down in the shade to feed our newborn, staff checking if we needed anything in the restaraunt and cleaning promptly around us even though it was pretty busy and adhering to covid measures.

Thanks for a great day!

Thank you so much for the lovely and detailed review. Over the years over 90% of visitors stayed in the lower gardens where the railway, Difflin Lake, restaurant and features all reside. You’re correct in that it does take a few visits even to see half of the park but at least the train does allow you to spot things as you travel! It’s great that your son had so many new experiences. We’re delighted that you enjoyed your meal and the best burger! We really appreciate your kind words on the attentiveness of Buffers staff. Thank you again so much, for taking the time and hope to see you again soon.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We visited yesterday 4 generations 5 to 69 years old. The Harry Potter themed visit was amazing for the 13,10 and 5years olds and I must say the adults enjoyed it just as much. Early rain cleared and aftermoon autumnal sunshine allowed us to walk all of the beautiful grounds and take the train ride. We all had fun with the games and the questions and answers. Overall a great experience for everyone and the coffee was great. Highly recommend we will be back.
