Dublin, CA – The New American Backyard
Dublin has a rich history dating back to 1772 when Pedro Fages led an expedition of 16 mounted men on a journey in search of a land route to Drake’s Bay, now known as San Francisco Bay. Their return journey brought them through the Amador Valley.
Founded on the aspirations of emigrants from the Emerald Isle, Dublin is a flourishing city that shares an enormous valley with its neighbors, Pleasanton and Livermore.
