Leixlip

Leixlip, derived from Léim an Bhradáin meaning Salmon Leap, is a town in north-east County Kildare.  It is located at the confluence of the Rivers Liffey and Rye on Kildare’s border with Dublin.

In 1755, Arthur Guinness opened his first brewery in the town before moving to St. James’ Gate in Dublin 4 years later.  Visitors now have the opportunity to follow in Arthurs’ footsteps along the heritage trail, Arthur’s Way which takes in Celbridge, the town where he spent his childhood, into Leixlip and on to Oughterard where he is buried.
