Dublin, New Hampshire

Dublin, New Hampshire, is a small town of about 1600 residents, situated in the southwestern corner of the state.  Tucked neatly between the three towns of Keene, Peterborough and Jaffrey, Dublin has the unmatched convenience of three very large communities within ten minutes of Dublin center creating a wide range of shopping and entertainment possibilities.  Younger residents also find it comforting to know that there are so many job opportunities available so close to their front doors – not to mention Keene State University.

The area to become Dublin was first a large plot of land granted, along with several others, by the Masonian Proprietors to protect the western part of the state from Native American attacks.  Originally known as Monadnock #3, or North Monadnock, the town was eventually called Dublin, so-named by Irish settlers who came to the area in the 1760’s.  Around 1771, the residents petitioned the government to incorporate their town as “Dublin”, and were granted such.

Trading, fishing, hunting and farming were the primary means of support for Dublin residents until the mid-1900’s.  Today, Dublin is a bedroom community – a quiet place to return to after a long day’s work.  The Yankee Publishing Company, however, does operate out of Dublin producing the popular “Yankee” magazine and the “Old Farmer’s Almanac”.

Being a very small community, there isn’t much to do in Dublin outside of fishing, hiking, biking and hunting – in the warmer months.  Come winter, there’s ice fishing, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing and more hunting (just colder).  For real excitement you’ll have to visit Keene or Peterborough, two towns that usually have something going on.  Dublin residents sometimes take day trips to the NH seacoast, about an hour and a half east or visit the White Mountains, a little under an hour and a half north.  The larger cities of Nashua and Manchester aren’t too far from Dublin – only about 45 minutes to an hour.  However, the whole point to living in Dublin is getting away from the cities, so most residents prefer to simply stay home and bask in the natural beauty that surrounds them.

Dublin falls under the jurisdiction of School Administrative Unit #1 and is a member of the Contoocook Valley Cooperative, along with the nearby towns of Antrim, Bennington, Francestown, Greenfield, Hancock, Peterborough, Sharon, and Temple.  Dublin maintains its own elementary school, the Dublin Consolidated School, catering to grades one through five.  Student in grades six through eight attend the South Meadow School in Peterborough, while students in grades nine through twelve are educated at the Contoocook Valley Regional High School, also located in Peterborough.
