My wife and I have lived in Dublin since 1977. I am a former president of the Dublin, Ohio Chamber of Commerce and the Dublin Youth Athletics. I have been active with many local "not for profits" of which the Dublin Foundation is one of my favorites. Our one son went through the Dublin public schools and lives less than 1/2 away from us with his family. Within Dublin we live in Muirfield Village and its 2,400 homes, 2 golf courses and life style are quite special. Come visit Dublin for the Irish Festival in August and check out the fun in a great community!

I have lived in Dublin most of my life. Many new things are happening here, a lot of new buildings and business is starting to appear. This means more activities and more job opportunities! I feel extremely safe here even walking around at night, because there is such a big nightlife vibe to the city as well. Dublin is a great place for families, and I know if I ever move from here, the minute I start having children I will be back!
Dublin is a great city that has Irish heritage. The people here are very nice and include a vast diversity of professionals and middle-class families. Almost all of the schools are ranked about 9 out of 10 or higher. The landscape is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve moved a lot; I’ve lived in four states and two countries. But, by far, Dublin is the best overall city to live in. Everything you need is here, and the city is only growing, with more and more town squares and residential areas. Another advantage is that it is less than 30 minutes away from downtown Columbus, a great place to visit. I simply couldn’t ask for anything else in this beautiful city.
