  • I visited earlier this week and found that a once lovely facility is looking care worn and in a poor state of maintenance. On arrival the automatic entry machine only takes coins and also rejects them...  more »
  • It's a lovely place to visit but the €5 charge to car park seems a lot. Coffee shop is quirky & there is nice seating outside...but v pricey for what I consider to be basic food.  more »
  • Lovely walks and lakes in this place.. was lovely to get out and see the wildlife.. spread over a vast area and plently of beautiful sights.. me and my partner really enjoyed it :-)  more »

  • Great place for a walk in the woods. You can inhale this lovely pine smell and walk for hours. Good place for kids as well! There are toilets, a huge car park (don't forget to bring your 5 Euro in cash to pay to get in) and a coffee place. Around Christmas this place is magical.
  • This is such a fantastic spot. Great to take dogs for a run. At €5 a visit- guess that's why cars are parked dangerously along the various park entrances.
  • Donadea is a wonderful forest park, offering woodland walks, large green areas & picnic areas. Car entrance has to be paid in coins - last time we visited it was about €5. Well known locally, Donadea can be very busy on sunny summer days, limiting the parking available
  • Charming forest, great 9/11 Memorial. But entrance fee in coins @ 5 euro very problematic at times.
  • 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.
