Discover Donegal & Oakfield Park, this Summer. Oakfield Park is now open 7 days per week with fun for all the family. It truly is a wonderful place to escape, it is best known as the Secret Jewel of the county. Located in Raphoe, Oakfield Park is one of Donegal’s best-loved outdoor attractions and has everything you need to plan the perfect outdoor adventure. Enjoy the surroundings everyday throughout July & August from 11am – 6pm and throughout September the opening hours are Wednesday – Sunday 12-6pm.

The grounds at Oakfield Park include a host of sites to explore, including walled gardens, ponds, lakes, an outdoor playground, a hedge maze, heritage trees and sculptures. Children can make a wish at Oakfield Park’s Faerie tree, while navigating their way through extensive walks and trails.

Weave your way through the park’s gardens along 4.5km of narrow-gauge track on Oakfield Park’s diesel and steam trains, the ‘Duchess of Difflin’ and ‘The Earl of Oakfield.’ The trains operate passenger trips around the grounds, which 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 exploring the parklands, visitors can refuel in Buffers Restaurant, which is open alongside park opening hours and is returning with a delicious new menu created with produce from the park’s gardens.
