Step Inside The Hoban Hotel in KIlkenny

Formerly Aspect Hotel Kilkenny

Welcome to The Hoban Hotel in Kilkenny, a vibrant place to stay, meet and socialise. Located within Kilkenny Retail Park, the hotel is just 15 minutes walk from the famous marble city. The hotel is named for James Hoban (1755-1831), a pioneering Kilkenny-born architect who designed and built America’s White House.

Following a 1 million euro renovation programme, the lobby, bar and restaurant have been completely transformed and we’ve introduced brand new menus with a choice of delicious food and drinks. We have also refurbished our 4 conference rooms making them the ideal spot for training, interviews and meetings. Car parking and Wi-Fi are both complimentary.

We have 80 spacious guest rooms suitable for corporate guests, groups of friends or families. We also offer fully accessible rooms for wheelchair users or those with reduced mobility.

Our team make the atmosphere of the hotel what it is. Down to earth, friendly and knowledgeable, we are here to help. We have the inside track on all things Kilkenny so whether it’s the hot spots of the city or the hidden gems of Ireland’s Ancient East, we can point you in the right direction.

Kilkenny is a popular tourist spot for both Irish residents and worldwide travellers alike, staying at our hotel gives you easy access to some of Kilkenny’s best attractions.

Kilkenny is a blissful experience for Irish history lovers having kept most of its medieval Norman architecture. Visit Kilkenny Castle Parkland, Ireland’s no.1 free-to-enter visitor attraction, where it’s walled demesne parkland and formal terraced gardens still stand.

As well as being a family-friendly town, Kilkenny is known for its nightlife and restaurants – our hotel in Ireland is very popular for hens and stags for their weekend break away.
