Great family area! Large enough yet cozy. Can be boring if you're a single adult. Not much to do nightlife wise, and everywhere closes by 9 or so. I like it though. I moved here with my family when I was 12, and I have seen it change a lot over the years. Commute wise, it's great - 45 mins to SF, 40 mins to Oakland/ Berkeley, 30 mins to Walnut Creek. There are even 2 Bart stations. Definitely recommend (if you can afford it, that is).

Dublin is a safe city with a lot of influx coming in. It has rapidly been expanding the past ten years with no sign of slow down. This is good and bad, respectively. Growth of a city in regards to infrastructure and opportunities is always great. However, the schools cannot simply hold the capacity of students coming in. Dublin is overcapacity in many ways. The new housing almost sardines everyone in with houses, albeit beautiful, being so tightly packed together with no real front yards and only mere inches between them. Traffic has gotten worse. The safety and school system are top notch, however.
I love Dublin. I have moved 5 times and transferred schools 6 times throughout my 18 years. Dublin has got to be my favorite place to live. I went to middle school here (3 years), being the longest I have stayed at a school. The teachers they were incredibly understanding and actually cared for their students. Everything around my middle school was so accessible. I could get to Starbucks in 10 mins and my house was only a 15 min walk. Safety was extremely important for my parents and there was no safer place than Dublin. There are so many great restaurants and small businesses here that everyone supports. As well as the bigger fast food places. Dublin is extremely close to everything. Concord and Oakland being a 20 min drive and the SF being a 45 min drive.
