The halt is unstaffed. There are two platforms, with level access to the Cobh-bound platform. Access to the Cork-bound platform is via a footbridge, although there is a defunct level crossing which can theoretically (albeit illegally) be used to cross the tracks.
At both ends of the station is a viaduct; The Belvelly viaduct is at the Cobh end and the Slatty Viaduct is at the Cork end.
It is popular with tourists, walkers, and people working on the Island alike. Fota Island is home to a Wildlife Park, Scout Camp, Fota House and Gardens, Championship Golf Course and 5 Star Hotel.
The station opened on 1 July 1865.
