WHEN YOU’RE ON the property hunt in the greater Dublin area, it can be tricky to find somewhere that offers a reasonable commute, along with the space for residents to live and relax.

Barnhall Meadows in Leixlip, Co Kildare, offers the best of both of those worlds. The new development from Glenveagh Homes has easy access to Dublin via the M50, commuter trains and frequent buses.

In addition, the development overlooks four acres of protected natural parkland. On your morning or evening strolls you’re sure to spot the Wonderful Barn, a national monument amongst the greenery.


The Wonderful Barn adds a historical element to the area. Constructed in 1743 on the Leixlip side of Castletown Estate, the original use is still debated. Historians surmise that it might have provided the estate a sport-shooting vantage point or possibly was used as a dove-raising barn.

Showhomes are open for viewing this Saturday and Sunday, February 15 and 16, from from 12 to 2pm. These spacious homes, all in the ‘Elm’ style, count 1464 square feet, with extra-large gardens in each. Prices start from €430,000.

Each offers new owners contemporary kitchens and bathrooms, spacious living space, and A3 energy ratings as standard, thanks to high levels of insulation and state-of-the-art heat pump systems. The homes are semi-detached and offer two parking spaces each.

Dublin City Centre is under 30 minutes away by car, and Dublin Bus also provides a regular service. Irish Rail also provides a daily service, with Louisa Bridge and Confey train stations close by.

For families with school-age children, there are quite a few creches, as well as Scoil Mhuire and Leixlip Educate Together primary schools. For older kids, Confey College, Leixlip Community School, and Colaiste Chiarain offer secondary educational opportunities. Additionally, Maynooth University is only 15 minutes away.

Leixlip town has plenty to offer residents of all ages with local athletics, including GAA, soccer, rugby and basketball clubs. Leixlip Reservoir and the River Liffey allow for canoeing, fishing, and other water sports.

Whether you’re walking around the Wonderful Barn, or taking a jaunt down to Leixlip Castle, you’ll have a wide array of historical spots to visit, adding some culture to your weekends.
