Belmond Grand Hibernian
Whoever coined the phrase ‘travel in style’ must have just stepped off The Belmond Grand Hibernian. The perfect blend of traditional Georgian design with modern luxury, there really is no better way to explore this beautiful country.
Within the ten carriages, each named after a county of Ireland, 20 en-suite cabins provide the perfect haven to guests as the world glides by. Each cabin subtly reflects the county they are named after in their various accents of colour. Yet with tranquil shades of stone grey weaved in to each, along with the plush natural fabrics for heightened comfort in the spacious cabins, you can be sure to arrive to your next adventure fully rejuvenated, ready to take on your next adventure.
Each cabin features a writing desk and a long wardrobe and the large windows extend the boundaries of each cabin outwards towards the surrounding landscapes.
Dining on the Grand Hibernian rivals even Dublin’s most prestigious venues. Onboard you can delight in delight in the daily celebration of fresh Irish cuisine in the Sligo, Waterford and Wexford dining cars. From Skeaghanore duck leg confit at dinner to Donegal turf-smoked salmon at breakfast, you’ll be sure discover the truest taste of Ireland.
This train also almost doubles as an art gallery on rails, featuring contemporary Irish oil paintings, watercolour paintings as well as lithographic print.
When relaxing in by the bar in the observation car, one could almost forget they were not in a traditional Irish saloon if it weren’t for the concession of phenomenal views. Yet despite the beauty of the landscapes it takes you to, once you hop aboard the Belmond Grand Hibernian, you’ll be in two minds whether to leave.
Whatever you want your luxury tour or safari itinerary to include, we’ll create something fully bespoke for you… and only you.
