The Port of Cork has berthing facilities at Cork City, Tivoli, Ringaskiddy, and Cobh.
Cork City's quays are primarily used for grain and oil transport. The city quays house 10 berths, mostly privately owned.
Tivoli's facilities provide container handling, facilities for oil and ore, livestock, and a roll on-roll off (Ro-Ro) ramp. Prior to the opening of Ringaskiddy Ferry Port, some car ferries also sailed from here. Now, the Ro-Ro ramp at Tivoli is used by companies importing cars into Ireland.
Ringaskiddy is home to a passenger and car ferry terminal, and operates as a deep water port.
Cobh's quays are used as a terminal for cruise ships - the only such dedicated cruise terminal in the Republic of Ireland.
There are a number of other private berths elsewhere around the harbour. These are usually associated with a particular industry. These specialised berths are in Whitegate (oil jetties), Passage West (grain), Rushbrooke (cargo), Ringaskiddy (car ferry) and Haulbowline (naval/military).
