Thu Aug. 13th 2015
An exceptional new rail experience is taking shape in Ireland; launching in 2016. Belmond Grand Hibernian will be the country's first ever luxury touring train, lifting travel in the Emerald Isle to dazzling new heights, operating April to October each year.
It will be the 7th train to join the Belmond family, evoking the golden age of travel in the style of its legendary sisters, the Venice Simplon Orient Express and Royal Scotsman. A journey aboard the Belmond Grand Hibernian will take 40 guests in lavishly furnished private en-suite cabins to remote areas and exclusive attractions on 2, 4 or 6 night journeys departing Dublin and encompassing both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland..
THE CABINS - there are 5 carriages offering 16 twin and 4 double cabins. All of the double cabins can interconnect with twin cabins.
THE DINING - from wonderful artisan cheeses and superb smoked fish to smooth Irish Whiskies, the onboard menus feature the freshest ingredients from the regions the train travels through. The onboard chef and his team serve this sumptuous fare in two air-conditioned dining carriages.
THE OBSERVATION CAR - the local point for making new friends, listening to music or storytellers bringing Ireland to life.
