Tivoli is an eastern suburb of Cork city in Ireland.

Tivoli is part of the Port of Cork.[1] It provides container handling, facilities for oil, livestock and ore and a roll-on/roll-off (Ro-Ro) ferry ramp. It's a significant point of entry for imported motor vehicles. Tivoli is also a minor tourist area, and has a number of bed and breakfast establishments as well as the Silver Springs Hotel. The cedar trees, still growing in the area, are reputed to have been planted by Sir Walter Raleigh, who lived there briefly.[2]
