Dublin is a city that offers a great sense of diversity among the people, healthy choices for food and places to exercise, also it is a community for everyone! The people of Dublin are welcoming and cultured. The views at the parks and on the trails are breathtaking. You feel a sense of peace. It's a city with a lot to offer, but can also be a place of refuge. Dublin is a place of home.
Review Dublin
Dublin is an ideal location for a new upper middle class family. I would not recommend the location for professional students, unless you have a roommate, because the cost of renting is rather high in this area. There is a considerable amount of shopping within a short distance, although the local mall (Tuttle) seems to be losing quality retailers. Healthy living is possible here, with many parks and bike paths available to residents. The school system is good, and you are almost limitless regarding extracurricular options for children. The nightlife needs a serious rescue, because the city seems to shut down incredibly early. This drives the nightlife crowd to the downtown are of Columbus.
Dublin is a very beautiful city. There are several schools that give your children great education. The neighborhoods are all very nice looking, kept clean and safe for children to play or take the dogs on a walk. The Muirfield Golf Course is a popular attraction as well, bringing in several golf celebrities each year. Dublin has many places to eat and is also surrounded by other great cities which offer even more restaurants and activities to experience. The beauty of the city is unfortunately due to the high taxes required by all the residents. This money seems to go to good use whether it be building a new roundabout to ease traffic and better safety or maintaining the several parks for the children to play in. Overall, Dublin is an exceptional place to raise a family.
