MJ2 Marketing has called Dublin, Ohio home since our conception in May 1, 2008. Home to more than 20 corporate headquarters, 4,300 businesses, and countless unique events, Dublin is the perfect place to work, play, and live. Through the years, we’ve developed a few favorite things to do in Dublin. If you’re new to town, just passing through, or even a Dublin veteran like us, this list highlights some of our top picks, many that have been around the area for ten years, like MJ2, and some that are just getting started!
Grab A Cup to Go from Winan’s
An Ohio-grown chocolates and coffee business, Piqua based Winan’s opened up shop in Dublin in 2012 and MJ2 mornings have been fueled by their java ever since. Winan’s offers freshly roasted coffees and handmade premium chocolates that are to die for! Pro tip – if you’re ever at a loss for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Christmas, or any other gift idea, Winan’s always has holiday themed chocolates, gift baskets, and more.
Play at Pins Mechanical Company
If you’re searching for fun things to do in Dublin, search no further. Pins features plenty of fun, including duckpin bowling, pinball, ping pong, foosball, bocce, and shuffleboard. Located at Bridge Park, it is open seven days a week, with food trucks and plenty of draft beer and cocktails. Tables and lanes fill up fast, so be sure to arrive early for the best chance at gaming.
Dine In at Cap City Fine Diner & Bar
We were ecstatic when we heard the news that Cameron Mitchell’s had chosen Dublin as the location of their third Cap City. The restaurant opened in July 2017 in new Bridge Park area of Dublin, and we won tickets to their soft opening. Everything at Cap City is made from scratch and their upscale take on classic comfort food is irresistible. The “Seriously Big Chocolate Cake” and meatloaf are just a few of the reasons it’s one of our favorite places to eat in Dublin. Rumor has it that their Dublin opening was on of their strongest across all of the Cameron Mitchell brands during launch week. Wow!

Take a Hike at Indian Run Falls
Need an escape? Located at 700 Shawan Falls Dr., Indian Run Falls is a nice getaway conveniently located right in town. The park has nature trails, bridges, and observation platforms. We love going for a hike on the nature trails in the fall. You won’t want to miss the main attraction in the summer, the gorgeous waterfalls!
Embrace Your Inner Irish at the Infamous Dublin Irish Festival
What would this list be without the Dublin Irish Festival!? For 30 years, the City of Dublin has hosted what is now the biggest three-day Irish Festival in the world. The festival brings in over 100,000 guests with more than 535 performers. This year, graduating high school seniors who have been active Dublin Irish Festival volunteers are encouraged to apply for the 2018 Dublin Irish Festival Volunteer Scholarship.
