Welcome To The 1801 Restaurant & Bar

Welcome To The 1801 Restaurant & Bar

Have you had the pleasure of visiting the Hoban Hotel since our 1m makeover? When you do, make sure to stop for a bite in our new-look 1801 Restaurant & Bar. Here are some of the new features and some brand-new additions to our menu that you have to look forward to.

Enjoy all-day dining with a great lunch menu and snacks right up until 6.30pm, when our dinner menu comes into effect.


We have completely renovated and refreshed our restaurant, including staff uniforms, furniture & décor and menus. We have opted for a more modern, open-plan space which perfectly combines contemporary & functional. Our furnishings now include impressively long tables, perfect for larger groups to share a meal together. The colour scheme combines warm greys, rich blues and muted mustard tones and the furniture is unique and comfortable.


When morning comes, enjoy a hearty breakfast in our bright and airy restaurant. You’ll be greeted into the restaurant by our friendly staff who will seat you and show you where to go to help yourself to our extensive breakfast buffet. Choose from our delicious Full Irish Breakfast, complete with locally sourced sausage, bacon and puddings and an array of other hot options. If you are looking for something a little lighter, opt for our continental buffet. Enjoy a bowl of cereal, choose from our selection of freshly baked pastries and top it all off with a cool glass of fruit juice and a coffee.


The morning bustle quickly changes to a relaxed and casual atmosphere for lunch. 1801 is the ideal place for a business meeting, a working lunch or for a leisurely catch up with friends. Our lunch menu has been refreshed along with our look and now includes a great variety of lunch dishes which include homemade soups & sandwiches, paninis and freshly made salads. If you’re just peckish, you can enjoy a strong coffee and a sweet treat instead of a meal.


Our stylish and contemporary restaurant has inspired our chef to create a brand-new dinner menu to showcase the finest local produce and the culinary talent of the kitchen staff. 1801 is the ideal place to enjoy a romantic meal, a business dinner or a family-friendly get together with dishes to please any palate. Our new pizza oven is the star of the show, producing perfectly crispy pizzas topped with the finest quality ingredients and served with a warm smile and friendly manner by our waiting staff.
