History and Heritage of Leixlip

Leixlip was once on the border of the old Irish kingdoms of Leinster and Brega, and was an outpost of The Pale – the area around Dublin controlled by the English that is said to have given to the phrase “beyond the pale”.

The Vikings settled in Leixlip as they couldn’t row their longships any further upstream. The Vikings won a famous victory at the Battle of Confey, defeating the King of Leinster. Leixlip Castle dates back to the Norman invasion of the 12th Century and is built on a rock at the confluence of the River Liffey and the Rye Water. The name is Old Norse for “salmon leap” and is derived from a five-metre high waterfall that was a local landmark until 1945 when a hydroelectric dam was built.

Those interested in architectural history will enjoy visiting Castletown House. This 18th century building was the first Palladian-style house to be built in Ireland and its design was copied by the architects of the White House in Washington DC. There is also an intriguing building in the form of the Wonderful Barn, a cone-shaped building at the eastern edge of Castletown.
