  • The park has enormous potential but is not in the same league as many other parks one could visit. It is certainly not worth the €5 per car entrance fee since even the toilets are closed outside of hi...  more »
  • Take a pair of waterproof boots if it has been raining. Lots of trails to explore. Dogs required to be leashed. The main area in from of the castle can get very busy. 
  • This is an outstanding place to walk the dog, walk the children or just waste time in a great place. The place is spotless, the massive lake superb, and a great little snack bar open on Saturdays and ...  more »

  • Nice park, great place for running. You need €5 in change to get into the car park via an unmanned electric gate, and there isn't a place to get change for miles, so be prepared.
  • Why oh why can't the fact that there is a fee to get into this park be mentioned on the website. After reading about it being a nice place for a walk we decide to take a drive there to check it out. The weather today is very unsettled so it was only going to be a 30 minute trial run. Imagine our surprise when we turned into the entrance to be faced with a barrier and a slot machine that needed feeding with €5.00 in coins to get in. As we didn't know that there would be an entrance fee we didn't have any change with us. We had not option but to turn around and drive home again. If it is worth the entrance fee please be courteous enough to mention it on the website.
  • Donadea forest park is an amazing and magical place I have been going there since I was able to walk and we even use to swim in the lake and In turn I have brought my children the eldest being 18. The park is kept immaculate and the events that are held are amazing. I don't think 5 euros is a lot to pay in for the privilege of being able to use the park. If there was anything I would change is that it should be able to take notes at the entrance.
  • Please indicate on your website that there is a charge which can only be paid with coin. like me most people don't mind paying the charge but might not happen to have coin. Prior notice on your website would be helpful
  • Nice park, lovely walks and very family oriented. €5 for car park entrance is a bit much. Don't forget to bring change as cards or notes not accepted
