Is Oakfield Park wheelchair accessible?

Oakfield Park takes great care to make as much of the gardens as wheelchair friendly as possible. Many of the paths have a hard base or geogrid under fine pea gravel, the restaurant if fully accessible and we provide accessible toilet and parking facilities. The trains are also fully accessible, and staff will help anyone needing assistance to ensure everyone is able to ride the train and see as much of Oakfield Park as possible.

Is Oakfield Park dog-friendly?

Oakfield Park is one of the best places for people to bring their dogs with no threat of traffic and plenty for your pooch to peruse. We absolutely love to see people and their dogs in the gardens, and this is a big reason for many to purchase a Seasonal Pass each year. Dogs on a lead are welcome but please lift droppings from paths and lawns.

Are the Upper Gardens open?

The house in Oakfield Park is a private, permanent residence and as such, is never open to the public. The Upper Gardens are open but only at weekends and Bank Holidays and by guided tour. It is possible to book your own guided tour outside weekend hours for larger group bookings. Just contact the estate office for further information.

Do Oakfield Park host weddings?

Oakfield Park do not currently host weddings despite great demand for doing so. We do, however, provide Wedding Photography packages for up to ten wedding parties per year. Please contact the estate office for further information.


This park is fabulous! The grounds are very well kept with loads of wildlife! Plenty to see and do! Definitely on the list of things to do in Donegal

What a fantastic day

I went to Oakfield park with my 4 and 5 year old boys and in their words it was the best day of our holiday ever! From the start we were met with extremely kind and enthusiastic staff members who couldn’t be more helper. My son’s played in the playground and explored all Oakfield had to offer for six hours. It was so clean and well looked after. A hidden gem we will definitely be returning to.

Great day at Oakfield Park yesterday

Had a wonderful guided tour of the upper gardens (delighted to see 4 acres of wild flowers coming up and wild garlic everywhere) then strolled around the lower gardens later on. Scrap was still with us the last time we were here and his photo by the Faerie Tree is still one of my favourites. Oakfield is more beautiful than I remember and Morholt the Land Giant is amazing! Coffee at Buffers was great and cheap. Something for everyone.

Santa Express

By FAR the best Santa experience we have visited. Every part is so well planned and feels so professional. From the train to the grotto to the outdoor entertainment and puppet show. My sons loved every bit of it. We ate at the restaurant and the food was so easy to order and quick. All round a 5* experience.

Fantastic jewel of a location.

Beautiful gardens and superbly maintained. It is beautifully presented with wonderful facilities and staff. The railway is a gem and so much fun. The restaurant has good value food and great coffee. So much to see in the grounds. Do not miss a visit to Oakfield.
