An exceptional new rail experience is taking shape in Ireland; launching in summer 2016, Belmond Grand Hibernian is the country's first ever luxury touring train, lifting travel in the Emerald Isle to dazzling new heights. A journey aboard Belmond Grand Hibernian takes 40 guests in lavishly furnished, private en-suite cabins to remote areas and exclusive attractions including ancient castles, famous whiskey distilleries and vibrant cities. 

With its lush green landscapes, mystical tales of old, fabulous food and wealth of literary and musical talent, Ireland truly has something for everyone to enjoy. Belmond Grand Hibernian takes its name from the classical Latin word for Ireland-Hibernia-recalling the ancient isle's romance and culture. Step on board to enter a whole new world of elegant carriages, fine cuisine and attentive service, with a breathtaking backdrop of the ever-changing panoramas of Ireland's celebrated scenic landscapes. Explore ancient castles, spot rare wildlife, sample famous whiskies and visit vibrant cities.
