The Port of Dublin is located in the eastern part of the city, around the place where the River Liffey enters Dublin Bay. You can easily walk from Dublin city centre (e.g. Custom House) to Dublin Port along the river in about 15 minutes.
Dublin Ferry Terminal (Ferryport) is also a part of Dublin port complex. It is situated next to The O2 and East Link Toll Bridge. It is in fact the closest to Dublin city centre of all parts of Dublin Port.

Naturally, you can see a lot of containers and other cargo, various cranes, and also the two characteristic chimneys of Poolbeg Power Station (on the right side of this picture).

On the sea side, there are two long walls protecting and separating Dublin Port from the open sea. In the north it is the North Bull Wall and in the south it is the Great South Wall, also called South Bull Wall. These pictures were taken from the latter.
The last picture shows Dublin Port in a distance, as seen from the very end of the Great South Wall (it is very long – almost 4 miles). There are lighthouses at (or near) the ends of both walls: Poolbeg Lighthouse at the end of the Great South Wall and North Bull Lighthouse near the end of the North Bull Wall.
