I love Dublin, mostly because I love Columbus. Living in Dublin is great because it’s located right outside of my favorite city, yet it’s quiet, suburban and beautiful. I used to live right in the middle of downtown Columbus. There are many things about it that I miss, but I’m comforted by the fact that it’s only a short drive away. Some things I don’t miss are the construction, lack of parking, and my tiny, expensive apartment. In Dublin I have peace and quiet, a place for my car, and an apartment that’s twice as big for the same price. I do wish that Dublin had more to do, but it has its own charm and fun things to offer, like the Bridge Park area, which has great restaurants and night life.

Probably overall the best suburb of Columbus, Ohio. Although not perfect, nothing in life ever is. There is an acceptable amount of diversity, although the Asian/Indian population seems to be dominating the other races at times. Plenty to do; lots of shops, restaurants, parks, you name it. The schools are excellent, with Jerome being the most competitive both academic and athletic wise, Coffman being a good medium with the only downside being the drug use and exclusivity, and Scioto being the “worst” with just average academics but a stronger sense of community and the most diversity. Wonderful place to move to and raise a family, or even for young professionals to start their career. Overall this suburb is superior to the rest.
Dublin is a great town for people that want to live the modern life style. There are plenty of restaurants, parks, and entertainment to be had, but at a cost of affordability. Dublin is known in Columbus as being one of the most expensive suburbs. That being said, you get what you pay for.

Because Dublin in more expensive to live in, the houses are nicer, the roads are maintained, and there are plenty of public amenities.

Being only a 40 minute drive to Marysville, a 20 minute drive to downtown, and a 10 minute drive to the Columbus Zoo, it is a great central location.
