Charming Historic Dublin is Walkable, Fun, and Just Minutes from Our Apartments in Dublin

In your family’s search for apartments in Dublin, it’s clear that location is important. Dublin is the ideal location for a growing or established family for so many reasons – schools, safety, recreation, community events, and more. That’s what makes Dublin Park so appealing – it’s located near all the things that make the city of Dublin so special.

Located just a couple short miles from our apartments in Dublin are the charming restaurants, shops, and entertainment of Historic Dublin. Nestled right on the banks of the Scioto River, the historic neighborhood is where the original village of Dublin once stood in 1810.

Grab the family and spend the day wandering the brick-lined sidewalks, perusing through boutiques, and noshing on mouthwatering food and sweet treats. You will be in complete awe of the 19th-century architecture found throughout Historic Dublin’s buildings – all of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Shopping, restaurants, and community events are just a few things you can expect to find in chic and desirable Historic Dublin – all within a few walkable, small city blocks. Here is a closer look at some of the many options you’ll find just minutes from our apartments in Dublin, Ohio.


If you don’t feel like dirtying up your kitchen, you and your family have a wide array of restaurants to choose from in Historic Dublin. Vine & Tap, located on S. High St., is a great option for date nights. Watch live music while sipping on wine and snacking on cheese. Cross Bridge Street and grab a pizza from Harvest Pizzeria or you could also take one home to-go. For a casual pub environment, spend the evening dining at The Dublin Village Tavern where they’re cooking up comforting Irish food and pouring craft beer from their taps.

Make it a special weekend and visit Tucci’s for their delicious Saturday and Sunday brunch. You’ll find parma benedict and corned beef hash plus french toast and waffle options for the little ones. Or if you’re feeling up for something a bit more elevated, reserve a table at Mezzo on West Bridge Street. Their menu boasts items such as Osso Bucco, short rib gnocchi, and veal saltimbocca. And these are just a few of the many options outside your doorstep of Dublin Park.

Sweet Treats

Whether you have kids in the household or just have a sweet tooth, our Dublin apartments are just a hop, skip, and a jump away from some seriously tasty treats in Historic Dublin. Johnson’s Real Ice Cream has been whipping up the creamiest, yummiest ice cream since 1950. Enjoy a scoop or two of their dozens of flavor offerings or perhaps indulge with a banana split. If you prefer baked goods, Our CupCakery has you covered. They bake cakes, cookies, and cupcakes that are absolutely dream-worthy. Be sure to check out their “Create Your Own Cupcake” bar.

Or perhaps you’d just like to end the evening with a nice coffee and a fine piece of chocolate. That’s when you stop at Winans Chocolates and Coffees before heading home to Dublin Park. They also have gift boxes if you’re ever in need of a present.


Boutiques and fun shops are just another reason to spend the day in Historic Dublin. The young ones in the household will love poking around the Dublin Toy Emporium. They have an incredible selection of wooden toys, puzzles, learning games, and arts and crafts for all ages. Or treat yourself to a new outfit from Boho 72 Boutique. A mother and daughter duo owns the shop where they carry uniquely curated women’s apparel, accessories, gifts, and art.

Need a gift for someone else? Pop into Extravagifts on North High Street. Their shelves are stocked with hundreds of locally made products, jewelry, home decor, and more. Or, if there’s a fur baby living with you, you can spoil them at Bentley’s Pet Stuff. This adorable pet boutique sells accessories, food, toys, and medicine for cats, dogs, and other pets.

Community Events

When you live at our Dublin apartments, there is certainly no shortage of events and activities happening in the community. Historic Dublin hosts ‘Second Saturdays’ and special events throughout the year that are fun for all ages. Past events have included the Red Wine Trail where you can sample wines at some of the best restaurants in Historic Dublin. Be sure to check out the White Wine Trail if you prefer a chardonnay or a pinot grigio.

During October, experience all things ‘Fall’ at the Family Fall Fest. The entire family can enjoy all the fall colors while creating crafts and eating yummy treats. Then, warm up in November at the annual Chili Cookoff where you can taste delectable chili recipes from local restaurants while raising money for charity. And the year wouldn’t be complete without a holiday festival, so make it a point to attend Holly Days in Historic Dublin where the whole family can kick off the holidays with Santa and his twelve elves.
