Welcome to Dublin
The “city with an Irish attitude,” Dublin was originally settled in 1803. It remained a small town until the construction of Interstate 270, which ushered in a population boom. Dublin officially became a city in 1987.
Today, its unique Historic District reflects the city’s Irish heritage with brick-lined sidewalks and quaint shops and restaurants in early 19th-century buildings. Many Dublin residents live in master-planned communities, several of which surround golf courses including Muirfield Village, home of the annual PGA Memorial Tournament. Golfing legend Jack Nicklaus owns a home in Dublin, so it should come as no surprise that the city is devoted to maintaining a wonderful golf-centric lifestyle.
The City of Dublin is located in Delaware, Franklin, and Union counties. As a suburb of Columbus, Ohio, it offers residents excellent schools, parks, programs, events, and more.

Why Do Residents Choose Dublin?
Parks & Recreation
Because the Scioto River flows through the city, there are plenty of choices for outdoor recreation. The city offers 59 parks with over 1,000 acres of wooded area and open space, and 77 miles of scenic bike trails. Some of the parks are found along the river and offer access for small watercraft. On the nearby Griggs and O'Shaughnessy reservoirs, motor boating and sailing are among residents' favorite pastimes.
Dublin is also home to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium with its adjacent Zoombezi Bay Waterpark and a large recreation center with pools, a fitness center, community hall, bocce courts, walking track and The Abbey Theater.
Attractions & Events
In 1988 the Dublin Arts Council established the Art In Public Place collection, which features a variety of outdoor sculptures. The program's goal was to enhance quality of life for Dublin residents, as well as begin a public art tour in order to attract tourists. The tour was a success and has since become nationally recognized. Additionally, Dublin hosts an annual St. Patrick's Day parade, golf tournaments, and the Irish Festival, which is one of the largest Irish festivals in the U.S.
One of the best known events hosted by Dublin is the annual Memorial Tournament, which is a part of the PGA tour. This golf tournament is held at the Muirfield Village Golf Club.
Schools in Dublin are known as some of the best in the country and have won several awards for excellence. Students in Dublin are served by the Dublin City School District.

Thirteen elementary schools are found in the district and they are: Albert Chapman, Daniel Wright, Deer Run, Eli Pinney, Glacier Ridge, Griffith Thomas, Indian Run, Mary Emma, Olde Sawmill, Riverside, Scottish Corners, and Wyandot.
