Former Boyle mayor dismisses ‘scattered hotel’ proposal

A former mayor of Boyle claims a ‘scattered hotel’ isn’t be the solution to the current problems in the town.

Boyle Town team is exploring a concept that would involve refurbishing some property owners’ accommodation, with a central reception office and communal area.

But a feasibility study has found establishing a ‘scattered hotel’ in Boyle would be a ‘major financial challenge’ and most property owners are interested only if there’s grant aid.


There has been no hotel in the north Roscommon town for the past six years after the closure of the iconic Royal Hotel.

Former Boyle mayor Jane Suffin claims what’s needed in Boyle is a traditional hotel, saying a scattered hotel isn’t what’s needed.
