Despite sharing a name with an Irish city, Dublin, California, is more than 5,000 miles away from the capital and largest city in Ireland … but that doesn’t stop residents from celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in style. In fact, for the last 30-plus years, the city goes green in a big way with a community festival, the Green and White Gala, a pancake breakfast, Shamrock 5k race and, of course, a celebratory parade. Festival highlights include a variety of vendor booths at the Irish market, an Irish Tea Cottage, live Irish music and performances and carnival rides for kids of all ages. Residents in the tight-knit community join in the fun by decorating their Dublin apartments and communities and wearing their St. Paddy’s Day best - all green, of course.
But that’s not all Dublin has to offer its residents in terms of local entertainment. The city is green in ways other than the annual St. Patrick’s Day festival, boasting 18 community parks, outdoor recreation fields and open spaces, which residents frequent to walk, hike, bike, play intramural sports and lounge in with a picnic lunch. The city also maintains the Dougherty Hills Dog Park and Bray Commons Park, both of which are equipped with everything your furry friend needs to enjoy the great outdoors, and water play areas at Emerald Glen Park, Shannon Park and Devany Square, which are great alternatives to the air conditioning in Dublin apartments when the summer temps soar. Don’t forget to check out the Dublin Swim Center, located next door to Dublin High School!
Despite Dublin’s emphasis on tradition and Irish legacy, thanks in part to the Irish settlers who bought the land and founded a town named after their home in the Emerald Isle, the restaurants near Dublin apartments feature cuisine from around the world. Local residents have access to Afghan food, American and Chinese fare, Filipino and Hawaiian cuisine, Japanese, Italian, Indian, Korean, Mediterranean and Mongolian restaurants, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Thanks to Dublin’s Tri-City location in the Crossroads of the Bay Area, it’s become a destination for a diverse group of residents and visitors looking for a little something different; in fact, Dublin is the second fastest-growing city in California and the fastest-growing city in Northern California.
Whether people flock to Dublin apartments to be a part of a tight-knit community, celebrate Irish pride year-round or to live within close proximity to Oakland, Fremont and just across the bay from San Francisco, the U.S. Emerald Isle is a fantastic place to call home, no matter the season.
