    We had had a long day before our flight, a five hour flight and then drove straight from Dublin to Kilkenny. We went directly to the hotel (The Hoban). It was still pretty early and, without expecting much, I inquired at the front desk about the possibility of an early check in at some point. The gentleman at the desk said he couldn't promise any thing but he'd see what he could do. We then asked the dining room manager if it was possible to get a cup of coffee. (The breakfast seemed to be mainly for guests.) The lady said we looked like we needed some coffee and a place to sit that wasn't a form of transportation. She told us to get some coffee, breakfast if we liked and just settle up with her when we were ready. We had breakfast and then headed into city center to explore a bit. We had no more than parked the car than the gentleman at the front desk called and said our room was ready. We had been there such a short time that the car park didn't even charge anything. At that time it was about one and a half hours after I made the request and a good five hours before regular check in time. I obviously can't say enough good things about the staff at Hoban. The hotel was in good condition, the room was clean with plenty of space and the beds were comfortable. The Hoban Hotel was an excellent choice and we'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

    There was absolutely nothing to dislike.

    Great breakfast! Nice rooms with a full bathroom. Beds and pillows meet our standards.

    The dinner selections in the restaurant dinner menu selections were OK but not great. The selected items were tasteful. This is a popular spot for tours and local events. A bus showed up just before we were seated and the kitchen and staff were overwhelmed. That made for an overly long wait for our food.
