Across the Irish Sea on the northwest tip of Europe is a land of
immense history and grand adventures: Ireland. Affectionately known
as the Emerald Isle, Ireland is a showcase of breathtaking
seascapes, rolling green hills and tranquil lakes. Dramatic cliffs
frame the coastline, and ancient castles and ruins are peppered
throughout the country, hinting at the grandeur of yesteryear.
Travel Ireland by train with one of our tour packages and
experience this enchanting land for yourself.
Ireland tours often depart from Dublin or other major cities,
such as Belfast or Limerick. During your time in these
metropolises, enjoy guided tours that present points of interest
either on foot or by motorcoach. In Dublin, popular attractions
include St. Patrick's Cathedral, Trinity College and the Book of
Kells. Belfast is home to the Titanic Museum, which details the
history of the world's most infamous ship. Limerick's medieval old
town features centuries-old row houses and a castle, town square
and cathedral that date back to the 12th and 13th centuries.
Venturing out into Ireland by train puts some of the country's most
iconic sights at your fingertips, as well. Tour the Ring of Kerry
in Killarney, gaze over at the rough water below from the Cliffs of
Moher or marvel at the endless stretch of basalt columns at Giant's
Causeway. Ireland castle tours voyage between the country's most
impressive fortresses, such as Hillsborough Castle and Blarney
Castle, home to the famous Blarney Stone.
Embark on a luxury train tour of Ireland aboard the Belmond
Grand Hibernian, and enjoy an intimate atmosphere highlighted by
traditional Irish furnishings and accommodations for a limited
number of guests. Alternatively, select one of the train vacations that
include time in both Ireland and Scotland for a trip filled
with legend and lore.
