Discover the Emerald Isle

Belmond Grand Hibernian transports you throughout Ireland in style

Discover the majesty of the Emerald Isle from the cozy Kildare observation car of the Belmond Grand Hibernian train, the new and first luxury rail experience in Ireland. Joining the legendary Eastern & Oriental Express, which traversed Southeast Asia’s timeless landscapes in our Ultimate Experiences magazine article, Belmond Grand Hibernian whisks you past the storied, jagged bluffs of the coastline and the lush countryside, highlighting the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, all while maintaining a classic, jovial Irish atmosphere on board. Whether you wish to tuck into a volume from the library collection or sip Irish whiskey while spotting castles from your cabin window, we’ll show you an incomparable side of the country in a way no one else has before in these memorable two- to six-night rail journeys.

Irish Immersion

Daily excursions invite guests to immerse themselves in traditional Irish culture, from visits to local produce markets and whiskey distillery tastings, to private tours in historic castles and up-close journeys to the dramatic Cliffs of Moher.

Onboard Indulgences

Step aboard Belmond Grand Hibernian and experience the same warm Irish atmosphere that is found within the destination. Reminiscent of a country home, the cabins, dining cars and observation cars showcase the utmost contemporary comfort with rich wood paneling, pops of color and plush interiors.
