HMS Dublin was a 74-gun third rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on 13 February 1812 at Rotherhithe.[1]

In 1826 she was reduced to a 40-gun ship. She became the flagship of Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific fleet Admiral Sir Graham Hamond, 2nd Baronet from 1835 to 1838, and Rear Admiral Richard Darton Thomas (1777–1857), from 1841 to 1845.[2]

Dublin was sold out of the Navy in 1885.[1]
