Leixlip Louisa Bridge is a railway station which serves Leixlip, County Kildare, Ireland. It is one of two stations in Leixlip, the other being Leixlip Confey. Both stations lie on the Dublin to Maynooth commuter route It is one of the few stations in the Iarnród Éireann network in which the station building is located directly over the platforms, on a bridge (Dun Laoghaire railway station also follows this design).
The station was upgraded to two platforms as part of the Western Commuter upgrade project in the early 2000s. At the same time it was reconstructed to be disability friendly. The previous station building is now a dwelling house. The 1980s concrete block station building remains, albeit out of use, the only remaining station building of this style from the 1980s re-opening of the Western Commuter line.
