Looks like a Favositid Coral. 

Cool find.

These seem to be palaeozoic favositid tabulate corals. The honeycomb tubes are typical and you can clearly see the tabulae (the lamella/separtions within the tubes).

Try googling images of "Favosites". (It could be also another genus within the familiy favositidae, Favosites is just an example).

I agree it is a tabulate coral, likely a favositid.  If you can give us a better idea of where you found it, we might be able to offer a more solid ID and age.
