I love living in Dublin, it’s an extremely nice suburb! The neighborhood I am in is extremely friendly and you get to know all your neighbors. Historic Dublin is really nice and has a lot of food places to eat! The night life ends a little early but that’s because it’s so family oriented. The schools are very highly rated. Dublin is only about 20 minutes from downtown Columbus and Easton Town Center which are two common areas people like to go. There are many good restaurants and they just opened a new area that has bars and other things to do, apartments are there as well so it is literally it’s own community.

Dublin's a lot safer and cleaner than other cities I've lived in (like Reynoldsburg or Gahanna) and like other cities, there are certain parts which seem isolated, while other parts are full of shops and useful things. Probably my favorite part of Dublin is the library branch which is in the historical district. I've gone to multiple schools within the Dublin district and as far as education goes, the schools could be worse, but they could also be better. However, since I've graduated from High School there, it seems like both the city and the schools have improved (the city is expanding for one thing).
The city of Dublin is an upper middle class community with well paved roads and sidewalks. They have multiple metro parks nearby in the Columbus area. The city is well surveyed with police and generally a safe place to live. There are still up and coming communities being built nearby, along with minor traffic due to the increase in roundabouts. The city is mostly green, with the increase in roundabouts versus traffic lights, and the widespread recycling requirements in most neighborhoods. The public schools are affordable and highly rated. The community involvement is well known as advertised, along with a diverse array of extracurricular communities such as the YMCA, nearby bowling teams, volleyball leagues, tennis accommodations, PGA approved frisbee golf courses and other such outdoor experiences. The night life of the city of Dublin is well rounded, and the family atmosphere is present near the public and private school areas.
