The haunting beauty of the pure, unspoiled landscapes and dramatic coastlines, combined with the magic of thousands of years of culture and history, combine to make Ireland an unforgettable destination.  Wild and beautiful, Ireland’s energy and romance are intoxicating.

Our journey takes you from Dublin to Cork and then on to Killarney, Galway and Westport before returning to Dublin.   Activities en route include a behind-the-scenes tour of the Jameson Distillery, kissing the Blarney Stone with private access to the Blarney Castle Gardens, enjoying the spectacular Lakes of Killarney, the breathtaking scenery of Connemara National Park, sporting activities at Ashford Castle, sheepdog trials and traditional Irish music and crafts in Galway. 

The Grand Hibernian has been described as a “relaxed country house on wheels.” Inspiration for the interiors of the Grand Hibernian was drawn from Ireland’s unique character and mythology as well as Dublin’s Georgian architecture.  The color scheme was influenced by Ireland’s flora and fauna.

Two dining carriages will serve cuisine rivalling the best restaurants in Dublin.  Dining aboard the Belmond Grand Hibernian is truly a taste sensation.  From wonderful artisan cheeses and superb smoked fish to the freshest seasonal vegetables and Irish whiskies, the onboard menus feature exceptional and authentically Irish fare.
