With a population of approximately 40,000, Dublin is one of the fastest-growing suburbs of Columbus, Ohio. Until the construction of Interstate 270 in 1970, the town had a total population of only 700 residents. The construction of this major freeway made this small, homey community much easier to access from Columbus and other surrounding suburbs, creating an influx of residents and businesses. Dublin is located in the northwest portion of metropolitan Columbus, providing easy access to big-city amenities, while still maintaining a small-town feel.
Like its namesake city across the pond, Dublin has a deep-rooted Irish community. With annual events and Irish-inspired establishments, anyone can feel the strong sense of pride that Dublin has in its Irish heritage.
Dublin's daytime population rises to over 60,000, with many corporate workers commuting to the city for work.
Major corporations Ashland Inc., and Wendy's International have their headquarters in Dublin, and are two of the top employers in the city. Nearly all of the jobs in Dublin are white-collar, with other major employers including Nationwide Insurance Enterprise, Cardinal Health, Dublin City Schools, Verizon Wireless, IBM Corp. and the City of Dublin.
The city is also home to Dublin Methodist Hospital, part of the OhioHealth system, which opened in 2008.
A large portion of the events in Dublin center on the Irish history the community has embraced.
Dublin is also a large golfing community, thanks largely to golf legend and Columbus native Jack Nicklaus. Nicklaus, who was instrumental in the course design of Dublin's Muirfield Village Golf Club, has been credited with making Dublin "Ohio's Most Famous Golf Address."
