Originally owned by the Atlantic Royal Mail Steamship Navigation Company of London it carried mail and passengers and was engaged in many other parts of the world in cable laying work. In 1872 ownership was passed over to the Telegraph Construction and Maintenance Company of London. In 1873 the ''Hibernia'' was also under contract to repair the French Atlantic Cable, that stretched from Brest to Saint-Pierre and Miquelon with Wilson Robert Cato as Master at Sheerness.
The ''Hibernia'' assisted the in its laying telegraph cables from Heart's Content, Newfoundland to Valentia, County Kerry, Ireland in 1873 and 1874. This cable was originally ordered by the French Atlantic Telegraph Company just before its takeover by the Anglo-American Telegraph Company. After completion, because of the shorter route, of cable was left and so additional cable was ordered to enable another cable to be laid, this being done in 1874. ''Hibernia''s task was the laying the short ends of the cables that came ashore.
After completion of the cable laying at Heart's Content the ''Hibernia'' was sent to Brazil to replace broken cables between Pará, Maranhão and Pernambuco. On 21 November 1877 while anchored at Alagoas in Maranham Bay the Hibernia sank.
