Dining Aboard the Orient Express- I Stepped Back in Time at the Weekend..

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer time. I took a few days off work and went to County Galway with my husband, we stayed in the Five Star Glenlo Abbey Hotel just outside Galway. We had dinner in the Pullman Restaurant which consists of two original carriages from the orient express train. It was delicious- really unique and a step back in time. It is amazing to see the luxurious interior of the carriages and imagine those that traveled on it years ago. These carriages served on the Paris-Instanbul-St. Peterburg route of the Orient Express. I'm sorry I didn't get more photos of the interior of the carriages but it was quiet busy and I was relaxing and taking it all on. Here are a few images from the Hotel and the final image is the entrance to the Pullman Restaurant.
