Tivoli is an eastern suburb of Cork in Ireland. Tivoli is in the Dáil constituency of Cork North-Central. A station on the former Cork and Youghal Railway served the area between the 1860s and 1930s. [1] [2]

The area is home to a number of bed and breakfast establishments and the Silver Springs Hotel. [3] [4] The cedar trees, still growing in the area, were reputedly planted by Sir Walter Raleigh, who lived there briefly. [5]

Tivoli's docks, part of the Port of Cork, provide container handling, facilities for oil, livestock and ore, as well as a roll-on/roll-off ferry ramp. [6] The docks are a significant point of entry for imported motor vehicles. The docks are to be phased out as the Port of Cork moves further downriver to the Ringaskiddy area. [7]
