Oakfield Park & Gardens

Oakfield Park is a beautifully restored 18th Century Georgian Deanery sitting in a lush landscape with 100 acres of parkland and mature woodlands to explore. The grounds include formal walled gardens, ponds, lakes, a lakeside Nymphaeum, Heritage trees, sculptures and extensive walks and trails and a 4.5km narrow gauge railway with a Diesel & Steam Train operating passenger trips. The Gardens are open 12 to 6pm, Wednesday to Sunday and Bank. The gardens are open to the public from 1st April to 27th September 2015. Opening times are 12 to 6pm, Wednesday to Sunday. (Closed Mondays & Tuesday)

The gardens will be open and train running on Banks Holidays (Rep. of Ireland and N.Ireland). Gardens will be open for all of Heritage Week. Trains run at the weekends and Banks Holidays (between 12 and 6pm) and at 3pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The Steam Engine ‘Duchess of Difflin' runs on the last Sunday of each month ‘Steam Sunday'.

From May to September our Vintage Tea Van will be open serving tea, coffee, light snacks, sandwiches, bakery treats, cold drinks including Wine and Kinnegar Craft Beer.

Author's Review

County Donegal isn’t abundant with tourist attractions as the county itself is the main attraction and in my opinion, the attractions that the county does have to offer, are all ones that you just cannot miss, take Oakfield Park for instance. This has to be one of the counties brightest hidden gems and compete with its very own steam train and 4.5 km of narrow gauge track, this just adds to visitor experience here and I have to say, I absolutely loved the gardens, they really took me by surprise and no wonder they have won countless awards. It’s very hard to explain how great Oakfield Park is in just one hundred and fifty words, but one thing I cannot forget to mention is the ‘Buffers’ tea rooms. Great coffee, home baked cakes and locally sourced ice cream is all on offer here, so leave the packed lunch in your hotel!
