Leinster Mills is located at Osberstown just south of the M7 and Naas Inner Relief Road on the western bank of the Grand Canal (Corbally Line) Greenway, beside Millennium Park, Kerry Foods, and the new M7 motorway interchange (Junction 9A).

The new M7 junction interchange 9A has opened up the potential of Leinster Mills. Existing vehicular access to the property is currently from the canal side which connects directly to the Town Centre at the R407 and Sallins (running under the Naas Western Relief Road and M7). The property will benefit from a future second vehicular access point along its western boundary linking to the Kerry Foods R&D and this will connect the site to the Millennium Park road network and the Naas Inner Relief Road.

Naas is the County Town of Kildare with a growing population of 21,400 (2016 Census) and up from 18,000 in 2006. Access to Naas is predominantly provided via the M7 Motorway, which now has three interchanges serving the town to include the new Junction 9A.

The Sallins and Naas Railway Station, is 1.5km away in nearby Sallins and is used by many residents of Naas and the surrounding area for the daily commute to Dublin. Naas is a busy commuter town being only 20 minutes’ drive from the M50 in Dublin and has enjoyed a significant influx of capital in recent years, with large amounts of residential, commercial and infrastructure upgrades taking place in the area. The commercial core of the town is along the main street with numerous retail occupiers with offices and residential located above. Tesco, Dunnes Stores and Lidl are all in the town.

The adjoining area is changing quickly with Millennium Park planning several large office blocks, retail, living/ work office suites and restaurant. A new 1,000 pupil post-primary school is also planned for the Northwest Quadrant which itself is the primary focus for the future planned expansion of Naas for enterprise, commercial, housing and associated recreational, educational and community facilities.

Nearby commercial occupiers include Kerry Group Global Technology and Innovation Centre; Irish Commercials; 6 no. office blocks to the east of the canal with the HSE; The Irish Auditing and Accounting Supervisory Authority (IAASA); GEA Process Technologies Ireland, Horse Sport Ireland; Cocoon Childcare and at Finlay Park where new residential units are under construction.
