Considering a move to Columbus, Ohio? Dublin could be a great option, but it’s important to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision. In this post, I break down the good and the not-so-good about living in Dublin.

Pros: Why You Might Love Dublin

  • Excellent Schools: Dublin is known for its top-rated school district, always a major plus for families and homeowners.
  • New Construction: Unlike some of the older suburbs, Dublin still has plenty of availability for brand-new homes.
  • Bridge Park: This vibrant new development offers walkable condos, restaurants, and retail, connecting nicely with the historic heart of Dublin.
  • Golf Scene: Golf lovers will appreciate living near the renowned Muirfield Village and other excellent courses. The PGA’s Memorial Tournament adds a week of fun each year.

Cons: Things to Consider

  • Memorial Tournament Traffic: While the tournament’s a plus, it also creates a week of congestion and headaches for locals.
  • Limited Commuting Options: Getting around Dublin and into other parts of Columbus can be tricky without easy freeway access in some areas.
  • High Cost: Dublin is a popular, in-demand spot, so housing costs are high, and property taxes add to the expense.
  • HOA Restrictions: Be sure to carefully check Homeowners Association rules, especially in areas like Muirfield, as they can be strict about things like fencing.

Is Dublin Right for You?

Dublin offers a lot for the right buyer. If top schools, new construction, and a vibrant community are high on your wishlist, it’s worth exploring. Be prepared for the higher price tag and some potential commute hassles.
