For the first time, you can experience Ireland’s lively cities, picturesque countryside, and breathtaking coast from the vantage point of a luxury overnight train.
When the Belmond Grand Hibernian launches on August 9th, it will be the first of its kind in Ireland, and a sister train to Belmond’s renowned Orient Express. Travelers can enjoy two-, four-, or six-night journeys, all conveniently departing from Dublin. The train’s name comes from “Hibernia,” the Latin term for the area of modern-day Ireland.
In 2015, Belmond purchased ten ordinary carriages and a locomotive from Irish Rail and began an ambitious refurbishment project. After 35,000 hours of work, the train was transformed into twenty luxury cabins accommodating forty guests.
The décor is a mixture of classic Irish tradition and contemporary glamour, with all the furniture crafted in Ireland.
The Grand Hibernian’s inaugural voyage is called the Grand Tour
, a six-night journey showcasing the country’s highlights. Circle clockwise across Ireland and even stop in Belfast, Northern Ireland. See everything from the lakes of Killarney to Connemara National Park to the Giant’s Causeway and much more.
