Itinerary:


Day 1 – Dublin:

Your journey begins at Dublin Heuston Station where you board the Belmond Grand Hibernian in the early afternoon and your first feast of your journey is served, giving you a taste of Clodagh’s stunning cuisine. During your journey, both Clodagh with Belmond Executive Chef Mark Bodie, will be on board preparing all meals, giving you an authentic taste first-hand on board. When not busy, they wonder the carriages chatting to guests. Later that day, disembark to Ballyvolane House where you’ll meet foraging expert Andrew Malcolm as he takes you around the beautiful grounds to seek out wile edible delights. After your forage, meet owner Jenny and tour the enchanting country house before a tutored tasting at Bertha’s Revenge Gin Distillery located nearby. This unique distillery uses whey alcohol from Irish cows’ milk and is named after the legendary cow ‘Big Bertha’ who lived to a record-breaking age of 48. Return to the Grand Hibernian for a delicious dinner after which Celtic entertainment is offered in the Observation Car.

Day 2 – Galway:

A leisurely breakfast awaits as you have time spare to unwind and socialise on board before we arrive in Galway. On arrival, lunch is served at one of the many iconic restaurants, Ard Bia, for a sample of local specialities. After, choose either a walking tour focusing on foodie hotspots or choose to visit the Galway International Oyster and Seafood festival (if available on the date of your journey). Rejoin the train later that day for pre-dinner cocktails followed by yet another delicious dinner. This evening’s entertainment is courtesy of local musicians.

Day 3 – Dublin:

Your journey concludes with a leisurely breakfast before arriving back at Dublin Heuston Station.

We will contact you one to 10 working days after you have paid to confirm your booking, take further details of those travelling and send your itinerary. In the rare instance your booking cannot be fulfilled for any reason, such as the operator cancelling a journey or anything else beyond our control, we will be in touch with alternative options or will refund your payment.

All prices shown are for one adult ticket. Sleeper journeys are based on two adults sharing accommodation. Single occupancy of cabins may incur additional charge.

As an authorised ticketing agent of luxury train journeys, we may need to pass some of your details (such as your name and dietary requirements) on to the train operators in order to complete your booking. This is done so the operators can add you to their guest list, send you your tickets and ensure the meals served to you onboard meet your dietary requirements. By booking with LuxuryTrainTickets.com, you are agreeing that you allow such necessary details to be shared with the operators under the cause of legitimate interest. If you have any questions, please contact us by phone or email info@luxurytraintickets.com.

There are a limited number of private tables and cabin types onboard. While we keep our website updated regularly, there may be occasions when private tables or cabin types become fully booked meaning we are unable to fulfil your booking requirements.

We have the right to refuse the request of a deposit when a journey is scheduled to depart in less than 16 weeks. If you choose to book with a deposit you must pay the remaining balance in full 15 weeks before departure at the latest.
