The town is also convenient, being connected by rail and road to Dublin.The major attraction in town is the Leixlip Castle. The main part of the structure dates as far back as 1171, making it one of the oldest buildings in Ireland that has been continually inhabited since it was built. Today, the castle belongs to the Hon. Desmond Guinness, son of the famous brewer. Castletown House is found in Celbridge on the main street, and is the first Palladian House in Ireland. It was an influence on the eventual architectural style of the White House in the USA. The Wonderful Barn is the oddly shaped, conical building with an exterior staircase at the eastern edge of Castletown. Also consider a visit to the remains of Confrey Castle.
