Leixlip History

The village of Leixlip was founded by the Danes, who settled here after their victory at the Battle of Confey in 915 A.D.
The name comes from Lax-hlaup (Salmon Leap) which Giraldus Cambrensis and other historians latinised into Saltus Salmonies. This was abbreviated to Saltus in legal documents, and survives in the local baronies of North Salt and South Salt.

The Church, which has a medieval West Tower, was built at the confluence of the River Liffey and the Rye Water, which here forms the historic boundary of the kingdoms of Leinster and Brega.

The castle overlooks it from its strategic position on a high rock. One of the Castles of the Pale, it was built by Adam de Hereford soon after the Norman's under Strongbow invaded Ireland in 1172.

It is said that Prince John Stayed here when governing Ireland in the name of his father, Henry 11.

It is the home of Guinness, Intel, Hewlett Packard and famous for salmon fishing. 17 kms from Dublin on the main route to the west of Ireland.
