Dublin, located in Cheshire County 23 miles east of Keene between Marlborough and Peterborough along Highway 101 near Monadnock State Park, one of New Hampshire's highest towns of elevation at 1,439 feet. It is on the dividing line between the watersheds of the Connecticut River and Merrimack River.

The town was first granted in 1749 as Monadnock No. 3, and then incorporated in 1771 as Dublin, one of a group of eight towns in the region settled by Scots colonists. The name was taken from Dublin, Ireland.

In the late 1800's as a summer resort town, Dublin became an artists' and writers' colony. Inhabitants included the painters Abbott H. Thayer and his pupils, Richard Meryman and Alexander James, as well as George deForest Brush and Joseph Lindon Smith. Amy Lowell, the cigar-smoking imagist poet, had a house on Beech Hill and Mark Twain spent two summers there in rented houses. In the days prior to World War I, the British Embassy moved for several summers to what is now the Pool's house on Snow Hill Road.

Visitors to Dublin will find the beauty of Dublin Pond, Monadnock Mountain, and Pisgah State Park quite pleasurable. It's also just a short drive to Keene where the Monadnock Children's Museum and many shops can be found.
