The hotel was closed at the time of the offence, which is alleged to have taken place between August 27 and August 28 last.
Broe was granted bail by Judge Eamon O’Brien after Insp Paul Reidy said there was no garda objection.
He was ordered to obey a curfew and to sign on at Roxboro Garda station three times a week.
The case was adjourned until May 30, next for directions.
