Breda & Ronnie Tanner used to previously own a Licensed Premises in Skibbereen, but sold that, and purchased Ilenroy House, in 1999, and have been operating it as a Bed & Breakfast for all the intervening years.

Breda is originally from Fermoy, and Ronnie is from Bandon. They have built up an excellent rapport with local and foreign guests over the years, and continue to provide a personal, friendly and caring service.


As a direct result of the COVID 19 pandemic, there are a number of arrangements that we need to have in place, to satisfy our legal obligations at this time. We want to make the check-in process as easy as possible for our guests, to ensure their safety and enjoyment while they stay in our home. If at all possible, can intending guests please let us have an approximate time, so we can endeavour to arrange that all guests don’t arrive at the same time? We would welcome guests between 4.30 pm and 8pm every day but we can facilitate a later check-in, if required. In addition, we will also need to collect full contact details for all our guests. This is required in the unlikely event that there is a need for contact tracing at any time in the future, due to the pandemic. We require names, addresses, Email addresses and telephone numbers for all guests. Thank you for assisting us with this information. It will be held in a secure place, and will be securely disposed of in due course.

We would also like to point out the following matters, which are of a temporary nature, until the virus emergency is past:

  1. Only take-away breakfasts will be provided.
  2. Check-out time is 10.30 am.
  3. Payment only be Credit/Debit Card and if this could be arranged prior to check-in, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you,
Breda & Ronnie at Ilenroy House, Skibbereen.
