Dining aboard what was the most luxurious train in Europe, and probably the most famous name associated with any train in the world, is definitely an experience to add to your diary.
Celebrating both cuisine and culture, ‘Flavours of the Orient Express Route Dinner’ is a distinctive dining journey exclusively available on Friday, September 29th and Saturday, September 30th.
Aboard the Orient Express, the award-winning fine dining The Pullman Restaurant allows guests to enjoy delectable food that reflects the original voyage of the 1930’s and 1940’s, while looking out to Lough Corrib and the stunning views that surround Glenlo Abbey Hotel Galway.
Taking inspiration from destinations across the continent by using local and artisan ingredients from local producers, Head Chef Michael Safarik has created a wondrous wine-paired menu for that extra special touch.
From your aperitif of London Gin & Tonic, the Flavours of the Orient Express will transport you to Calais, Paris and Zurich, then to Innsbruck, Vienna and Budapest, before the final destinations of Belgrade and Athens.
Glorified by books and films, the historical train features two carriages – one is called Leona that dates back to 1927 and was in fact part of the original Orient Express train, which hosted many VIP’s across Europe.
A luxurious Two Night Package includes accommodation at Glenlo Abbey Hotel with breakfast, plus the Flavours of the Orient Express Route Dinner on Friday evening.
Two Night Package costs from €379pps or One Night Package from €429 per room.
