All aboard for the tourist special to Waterford
The Emerald Pullman has enjoyed a big overseas following but has now changed its schedule to cater for Irish holidaymakers.
Guests living outside Dublin can model their plan according to their preference, joining the tour in Waterford, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Belfast. Guests boarding in Dublin can choose from segments of the tour.
The seven-night, eight-day tour, is on a private intercity train allocated by Iarnród Éireann to the Emerald Pullman service.
The Waterford stop will include a visit to Waterford Crystal and an overnight stay at the Granville Hotel.
Emerald Pullman say the new tours are their response to the drop in overseas tourist numbers upon which their business normally relies and are aimed at providing something appealing to domestic travellers looking for a different home holiday.
