Leixlip is a town in north-east County Kildare, Ireland, east of the midlands of Ireland, situated on the confluence of the River Liffey and the Rye Water, on the border of the ancient kingdoms of Leinster and Brega. Leixlip was the site of the famous Battle of Confey, in which the Viking King Sigtrygg Caech of Dublin defeated the Irish King of Leinster around the year 917., The first settlement at Leixlip was an outpost of Early Scandinavian Dublin, built at the furthest point where longships could be rowed up the Liffey. The town was also home to Arthur Guinness's first brewery in 1755, where he brewed ales until he moved on to St. James's Gate Brewery, Dublin in 1759, where he first brewed Guinness.
