Belmond Grand Hibernian

The Orient Express of Ireland.

Belmond have a global collection of 46 iconic hotels and 7 of the world’s most luxurious trains including the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. In 2016 $10m was invested in the first luxury rail experience in Ireland – Belmond Grand Hibernian. We were invited to design the livery.

Livery design

Evoking a sense of historic Ireland and the golden age of rail we devised a Celtic Knot marque, which has been used throughout the train – on carpets, ceilings, crockery and cutlery.

The inaugural journey of the Belmond Grand Hibernian was greeted with acclaim in Ireland.

“Its handsome exterior, silver-roofed and liveried in midnight blue, betrays a family resemblance to the Venice Simplon.”
