Dublin Reviews

All Categories
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.

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!
