Grand Hibernian is how to tour Ireland in style
Millions of tourists travel in luxury and see the world in some of the most expensive and incredible cruise ships every year.
Now, Ireland can offer its visitors an on-land alternative to the cruise ship – the Belmond Grand Hibernian train.
Ireland’s first luxury sleeper train offers visitors a unique and memorable trip across some of the most iconic and scenic parts of Ireland.
There are 2, 4 and six night packages available featuring various routes across the country.
The Grand Hibernian is a ten carriage locomotive consisting of 20 luxury en-suite cabins, two dining carriages and an observation car.
It gives its guests a unique memory of their tour of Ireland and takes in famous sites such as Blarney Castle, the Giant’s Causeway, the Lakes of Killarney and the Bushmill’s Distillery.
The two night package is named the Realm of Giants. Visitors board the Grand Hibernian at Dublin and travel to Belfast where they are invited on to a private guided tour of the Titanic Experience, and learn about the history of the ill-fated ocean liner.
Next is a visit to the Bushmill’s Distillery which is well planned as many guests will need a stiff drink following their nail biting walk.
Day 3 see the luxury locomotive return to Dublin for guests to depart and continue their adventure in Ireland.
The Realm of Giants package costs £2,338.40 per person.
The four night package is named Legends and Loughs. It departs from Dublin to Cork where visitors take part in a tour of the Jameson Factory before returning to the train for an evening meal and entertainment.
Day 2 includes a visit to Blarney Castle giving visitors the chance to gain the ‘gift of the gab’ by kissing the world famous Blarney Stone. The afternoon features a boat excursion on the spectacular Lakes of Killarney.
The Legends and Loughs tour costs £4,010.80 per person.
The six night tour, the Grand Tour of Ireland packages both the tours together and costs £5,714.28 per person.
