From the "parapet" on the top of the tower in Telemachus, Stephen looks northwest to where a ship is leaving "the harbourmouth of Kingstown." Kingstown, today restored to its Irish name of Dún Laoghaire (Dunleary), lies several miles southeast of Dublin very near Sandycove, the rocky point where Mulligan's tower is located. In Nestor, Armstrong refers to "Kingstown pier," one of two seawalls that form the artificial harbor adjacent to the town.
