Itinerary

01

Dublin

Board Belmond Grand Hibernian at Dublin Heuston Station in the early afternoon. As the train weaves its way through verdant scenery towards Cork, lunch gives you your first taste of Clodagh’s stunning cuisine. Throughout the trip, Clodagh, together with our Executive Chef Mark Bodie, will be on board preparing all the food and, when not busy in the kitchen, chatting to guests.

Disembark for a visit to Ballyvolane House, where you will join foraging expert Andrew Malcolm in the beautiful grounds and woods to seek out wild edible plants, fruits and mushrooms. Afterwards, meet owner Jenny to tour the enchanting country house and romantic gardens before enjoying a tutored tasting at Bertha’s Revenge Gin Distillery, located in the adjacent farmyard. This aromatic, small-batch milk gin, crafted using whey alcohol from Irish cows’ milk, is named in honour of legendary cow Big Bertha, who lived to the record-breaking age of 48.

Return to the train for a sumptuous dinner, after which we invite you to make your way to the Observation Car for some lively Celtic entertainment.

02

Galway

Linger over breakfast this morning and unwind on board as the train travels north towards Galway. On arrival in the gastronomic city, head straight for lunch at iconic restaurant Ard Bia for a feast of local specialities. Afterwards, choose either to enjoy a walking tour of the charming centre, focusing on foodie hotspots such as artisan cheesemongers. Alternatively, visit the Galway International Oyster and Seafood festival, the oldest oyster festival in the world and the most internationally recognised Irish festival after St Patrick’s Day. Sample freshly prepared oysters and even try your hand at shucking.

Rejoin the train in perfect time for pre-dinner cocktails as you bid farewell to Galway and Ireland's dramatic west coast. After another delicious dinner, local musicians will surely inspire you to leap to your feet for some traditional céilí dancing! The train stops overnight in Athlone.

03

Dublin

As we head back east, indulge in a final leisurely breakfast before alighting at Dublin Heuston Station, your journey's end. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
