Two-day trips on the train cost €3,160
The train is operated by the Belmond organisation which has a chain of luxury hotels around the world, as well as other high-end travel experiences such as the Venice Simplon Orient Express and the Eastern and Oriental in southeast Asia.
The carriages were originally used by Iarnród Éireann on inter-city services in the 1980s and there were problems with the plug-type doors in their early years. They were withdrawn from 2007 and had been lying idle in sidings for several years before they were purchased by Belmond in 2014 from Iarnród Éireann.
Two-day trips cost €3,160, four days cost €5,420 and six days cost €7,722. On board the passengers will have double or twin cabins with goose feather and Irish-made down bedding. You can book your jurney on website belmond.com
