Today marks the inaugural journey of the Belmond Grand Hibernian, Ireland's first luxury sleeper train, set to take off from Heuston at around 2.30pm. 

With a choice of two, four or seven nights on board, prices for the Grand Hibernian start at €3,160 per person – and that's for a two-night trip, starting out in Dublin and going to Belfast and Portrush before coming back to your departure point.A

At 252 metres long and with 10 carriages, the train is the longest in the country, and no expenses has been spared on its outfitting – fabrics, linens, cutlery and uniform were all designed in Ireland, and it's been in the works for the past year, built in Belfast by a team of 40 craftspeople.

There's space for 40 people on board each trip, with dinner served in one of the train's two dining carts – with a strong focus on local Irish cuisine.

Into it? Better get saving – and recruit a friend, because single occupancy is fairly limited, and prices are based on two people sharing.
