Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Dublin

    Board the train in Dublin and join the Train Manager for a champagne toast in the Observation Car. Enjoy traditional afternoon tea as we journey towards Cork. Disembark in Cork for a short walking tour of nearby Cobh Heritage Centre, where impressive displays on Irish history include the town's links with the Titanic. Rejoin Belmond Grand Hibernian for your first gastronomic dinner on board, then mingle with fellow guests over coffee and liqueurs in the Observation Car.

  • Day 2 - Cork

    After a leisurely Irish breakfast, select one of two morning activities on Cork. The first option is a guided walking tour of the riverside city, with a visit to the vibrant English Market for a sampling of Cork delicacies. The second is an exclusive tour of the world-famous Jameson Distillery in Midleton, finishing with a rare whiskey tasting. Rejoin the train for lunch as we continue to Killarney National Park. Disembark for a fun ride in a traditional jaunting car. Arrive at 15th-century Ross Castle on the shores of Lough Leane and alight for a scenic boat trip. Afterwards, either stroll back to the train and relax, or enjoy a little free time exploring the charming streets and independent shops of Killarney. As evening falls, drinks, dinner and entertainment on board await.

  • Day 3 - Limerick

    Spend a relaxing morning admiring the ever-changing scenery through your windows as you enjoy your breakfast. Stepping off the train in Limerick, after a short transfer, immerse yourself in a secret Ireland most visitors rarely see. Meet with local people and gain a refreshing insight into contemporary Irish art, architecture and sculpture. Round off the visit with a unique gastro lunch on site. Back on board, the dinner is served as the train continues toward Athlone.

  • Day 4 - Westport

    Linger over a leisurely a-la-carte Irish breakfast en route to the leafy Georgian town of Westport, arriving just before noon. Meet a local guide, who will enlighten you with historical and present-day facts. Pause for lunch in a local tavern before visiting Westport House, a magnificent stately home with rich interiors dating back over 350 years. In the grounds, admire the views of Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick, as well as tumbling waterfalls, ancient oaks and possibly a hawk-flying display. Before rejoining the train for the evening, take time to explore Westport's picturesque town centre with its pretty river and tree-line promenade.

  • Day 5 - Dublin

    The train makes its final journey back to Dublin, where you will disembark for your onward travel arrangements.
