Hotel Rosslare is back in the news again as the landmark building is for sale by public auction on June 21st by direction of Keane Auctioneers, Custom House Quay, Wexford.
Last September, the hotel was sold for €480,000 to a consortium with a base in Monaghan, and in December its future as a family hotel or as a temporary home for asylum seekers, or both, was a cause for local concern.
It was alleged that upwards of 2o refugees were accommodated in the hotel on the first weekend it re-opened for business.
At a meeting held in Rosslare Harbour, the owners of the hotel represented by John McEnaney, put forward a proposal to over 200 residents to house up to 40 asylum seekers in temporary accommodation.
There was much disagreement and discontent from 75% of those in attendance and so the business owners stated they will not be pursuing this plan and “will have to make the hotel work as a business and 100% will not now use Hotel Rosslare as temporary accommodation.”
At the time there was no comment from the Department of Justice.
An advertisement in the local newspaper claims the sale is an “outstanding opportunity to acquire a very popular hotel in the bustling village of Rosslare Harbour practically adjacent to the ferries” and WexfordToday.com has learned that it carries a guide price of up to €550,000.
