The Belmond Grand Hibernian offers 16 twin cabins and 4 double cabins, each featuring their own private en-suite bathroom. Each cabin reflects Dublin’s classic Georgian style and features a wardrobe, desk and chair as well as a more than comfortable bed. Each cabin is named after an Irish county and is decorated in that particular county’s very own tartan. Kerry, for example, comes in beautiful shades of purple whilst Waterford is dressed in calming blues. The huge windows in each cabin give way to the most splendid of views as the journey unfolds.
There are two air conditioned dining carriages on board the Belmond Grand Hibernian, each serving an exquisite Irish influenced cuisine. Sligo is fabulously elegant with accents of silver and chrome and guests are seated at tables of four whilst Wexford reflects its Irish roots with Celtic references and Irish tweeds and tartans and offers tables for six guests. A delightful Irish inspired cuisine is served from breakfast through to lunch and dinner including delicious artisan cheeses and amazing smoked fish.
Belmond Grand Hibernian offers two night, four night and six night journeys, each originating from Dublin.
The two night journey is known as “The Realm of Giants” and takes guests from Dublin northwards up to Belfast. Take in spectacular Irish sights such as the Giant’s Causeway, a magnificent example of natural beauty where over 40,000 basalt columns interlock perfectly. Visit the Old Bushmills Distillery, Ireland’s oldest working distillery, where five award winning Irish whiskies are produced and experience the vibrant city of Belfast, home to the Titanic Visitor Centre and the Grand Opera House.
Spread over four nights, the “Legends and Loughs” journey sees the Belmond Grand Hibernian head west from Dublin towards Cork where attractions such as St Finbarre’s Cathedral and the famous Jameson Distillery are both found. Just outside of Cork is Blarney Castle, famed for the legendary Blarney Stone. Guests of the Belmond Grand Hibernian enjoy a private viewing of the stone, avoiding the large queues that build up daily. After Cork, the train moves onto the Lakes of Killarney, travelling through the most beautiful countryside. Killarney National Park is a stunning setting with three lakes, mesmerising waterfalls and huge ancient forests and offers a magic all of its own. Take a boat trip to Lough Leane, passing the 15th century Ross Castle. Next on the agenda is the Connemara National Park, 5000 acres of rugged Irish countryside featuring lakes, mountains and unspoilt beaches. The trip rounds off with a visit to the lovely Galway with its charming old city centre filled with interesting shops and excellent restaurants.
For the ultimate tour of Ireland, indulge in Belmond Grand Hibernian’s six night tour named the “Grand Tour of Ireland”. This very special tour encompasses both the itineraries of the two and four night trip and also includes an exciting tour of the city of Dublin where guests can visit the famous Trinity College, sail down the River Liffey or shop along Grafton Street.
