As twilight falls, the magic begins at Oakfield Park, Donegal. The Santa Express at Oakfield Park runs from Saturday 1st to Sunday 23rd December and offers children and families a magical Christmas experience that they’ll treasure forever. With just three weeks until Oakfield Park opens its doors for this exciting event, now is the time to book tickets.

Described as one of Donegal’s hidden gems, Oakfield Park is home to a 4.5km narrow gauge railway and has over 100 acres of manicured parkland, making it the ideal venue for a truly magical Christmas event to share with family and friends.

This year’s Santa Express at Oakfield Park includes a new theme as well as lots of additional features including story-telling, Elf workshops and a craft marquee. Children and families are invited to experience the magical four realms in Oakfield Park’s enchanted woodland and board the Santa Express where they’ll enjoy an exciting train ride through Oakfield Park’s magnificent woodlands, through thousands of Christmas lights, installations and decorations. On arrival, children and families will be welcomed to a cosy grotto where Father Christmas and his special helpers will be waiting to greet them.

All children on Santa’s list will receive a gift and adults can enjoy the event with a complimentary hot drink of mulled wine. The park’s restaurant, Buffers, will also be open so guests and families can enjoy a delicious festive menu and children can post their Christmas letter to Santa in the special post box.

As part of The Santa Express in Oakfield Park, new Autism friendly train rides with tailored experiences have been introduced.
