The Port of Waterford is situated several kilometres downstream of Waterford City on the northern side of the Suir river in South County Kilkenny, and is called Belview. This has replaced the old facility in Waterford, located on the quays in the centre of the city.

Belview can handle lo-lo, bulk liquid, bulk solid and breakbulk/general cargoes. In September 2008, Minister for Transport, Noel Dempsey opened a new 190-metre quay that had cost €11 million to build.

The port is operated as a Port Company, under the 1996 Harbours Act. The nautical jurisdiction extends from Dunmore East and Hook Head on the seaward side and upriver past Waterford City. New Ross Port Company operates the waters of the confluent rivers of the River Nore and River Barrow.
