A lush landscape containing parkland, mature woodlands, formal gardens, lakes and breath-taking vistas surround the beautifully restored Oakfield House which dates back to 1739.  Oakfield Park includes beautiful walled gardens with deep flower beds, a kitchen garden, flower meadows, ponds, streams, wetlands, a parterre, a castle, a classical lakeside Nymphaeum, garden sculptures, heritage listed trees and a newly established international collection of oaks.

The gardens can be explored on foot or by train on the 4.5km narrow gauge railway.  Our new tea room ‘BUFFERS’ will be open each day the gardens are open.   Bring the family and spend hours exploring the Secret Jewel in the Heart of Donegal.  Group bookings welcome.  Children’s slide and swings, picnic benches and W.C. provided for visitors.  There is partial access for wheelchairs. Check our website and like our facebook page for more information and events.  Garden tours available on request.  Check the website www.oakfieldpark.com for details of special events and directions.
