Welcome to Dublin


Located in the Eastern San Francisco Bay Area, Dublin joins sister cities Pleasanton and Livermore as part of Alameda County’s Tri-Valley. Long known as the “Crossroads of the Bay Area,” Dublin’s nickname belies its proximity to the East/West I-580 and North/South I-680 corridors. In addition to convenient access to two of the Bay Area’s main interstates, Dublin is served by two stations on the Bay Area’s BART line. Whether by car or public transportation, Dublin residents have ready access to greater Bay Area’s tech hubs. From the time of its incorporation in 1982, Dublin has been at the forefront of planned growth in the rapidly expanding Tri-Valley, and remains a thriving city on the rise.

Dublin is renowned for its internationally acclaimed business parks – who play host to some of the world’s largest corporations – yet Dublin also supports locally owned small businesses. Through city programs such as: “Let’s Put Dublin on the Map! With Google” and “Discover Dublin! Shop Local!” Dublin has thoughtfully balanced an infusion of well-known and reliable with unique and innovative. Health care, Information Services, Social Services, and retail are among the leading industries in Dublin.

In addition to its convenient location, and its thriving large and small businesses, Dublin’s family-friendly communities, cultural diversity, top-rated schools, temperate climate, outstanding international dining, and growth potential contributed to it being ranked seventh on Money Magazine’s in 2018.
