Leixlip ( or ; ) is a town in north-east County Kildare, Ireland. Its location on the confluence of the River Liffey and the Rye Water has marked it as a frontier town historically: on the border between the ancient kingdoms of Leinster and Brega, as an outpost of The Pale, and today on Kildare's border with Dublin.

The population of the town is 15,452. It is the fourth largest town in Kildare, and the 23rd largest in Ireland.
