1801 Restaurant and Bar

At The Hoban Hotel

Following an investment of just under €1 million, this bright, contemporary open plan space is smart and comfortable incorporating rich, deep colours paired with statement pieces like trendy light fixtures and bold patterns. The colour palate, a subtle mixture of warm greys and muted mustard tones, give an air of luxury and elegance. The little details will really impress,  the gold and bronze glass racks above the bar, the modern and unique style of the furniture.

In the morning time, enjoy the bright and airy feel as the sun shines through the windows. With guests and locals enjoying breakfast, business meetings and chatter over coffee, the atmosphere is upbeat and service is attentive. Enjoy all day dining with a great lunch menu and snacks right up until 6.30pm when our dinner menu kicks in.

In the evening, the mood changes as guests and locals arrive in for pre-dinner drinks and settle in to peruse our extensive menus.
