Each spring the eyes of the sports world turn to Dublin’s Muirfield Village Golf Club as it hosts the annual Memorial Tournament, one of the PGA Tour’s most respected tournaments. World-famous golfer Jack Nicklaus, who grew up and developed his golf game in Great Columbus, designed Muirfield Village Golf Club and has hosted the Memorial Tournament since it’s first year in 1976.
Located just ten miles north of Columbus, Dublin residents celebrate their Irish roots in a community that loves their Irish heritage. For the past 20 years, during the first weekend of every August, the residents of Dublin extend Irish warmth to over 100,000 visitors from around the world for North America’s largest Irish Festival. The festival plays host to internationally acclaimed Irish and Celtic musicians such as Gaelic Storm, Black 47, Flogging Molly, Homeland, Liz Carroll and John Doyle, and dozens of others.
Festival attendees can rock to Irish-Punk, light jig, single jig, or slip jig to Irish music or simply reel off the night friends and family. Of course, you are welcome to simply watch the professionals as they step dance at the Columbus Feis, an internationally renowned Irish dance competition, or walk the isles of vendors. There you can trace their genealogy back to the old country, admire the cultural exhibits, play children’s games, make traditional Gaelic arts and crafts, or throwback a traditional an Irish beóir. All of this is hosted by a community that takes its Irish roots seriously.

Part of the success of the Dublin City Schools athletic programs is a reflection of its strong recreational opportunities. With more than 1,000 acres of parkland and 35 individual parks offering everything from woodlands to athletic fields, Dublin is working to build a garden city that provides the whole community a place to live, work, and play.
Because of an effective and long term plan, the City of Dublin has successfully integrated residential and commercial needs into the community. Dublin is the national or regional headquarters to dozens of high visibility companies such as Wendy’s International, Ashland Chemical, Online Computer Library Center (OCLC), and Cardinal Health. Other significant operations include Nationwide Insurance, Qwest, and Verizon. The city is attempting to attract new technology oriented businesses as well. Dublin Methodist Hospital opened in January 2008, and is part of the OhioHealth system. Dublin has succeeded in attracting and keeping these and other businesses due to its aggressive marketing and tax packages, and by providing a wealth of community resources for company employees and their families.
