The Irish capital appears towards the end of the novel, during the period of Stephen's Belvedere studies. It is the Dublin of Joyce's youth, which places the book somewhere around the year 1900. Horse-drawn trams still operated, and Ireland was not yet independent of Great Britain.

Dublin is also the setting of Joyce's Ulysses.
