Depart on the Grand Tour of Ireland on Belmond Grand Hibernian and experience dramatic landscapes, regal castles and captivating towns, all whilst revelling in the elegant carriages of Ireland's only luxury sleeper train.

The train’s grand interiors echo classic Georgian architecture and the ambience of a Dublin saloon.

Follow it through each carriage and find yourself in the Observation Car, where large picture windows frame breath-taking views.

Thirsty for a tipple while you’re here? Our barman is on hand with a range of world-class malts and fine-wines at his fingertips. Or perhaps the evening’s entertainment calls for a Guinness while you sway to Irish folk tunes. Dining on board is a taste sensation, with our sublime menus rivalling Dublin’s top venues. Each dish celebrates Ireland’s finest local produce, served with modern flair in dining cars Wexford and Sligo.
