This was such a wonderful experience for our anniversary. The history of the train, the first class cabins, and of course the food all made for such an incredible time for us! Highly recommended - especially for special occasions!

Portarlington is nearby and Drysdale do have B&b. Portarlington will be busy at the moment with holiday makers but worth a try!
