The Ryevale Tavern then known as Moore's was for forty years under the management of Miss Eliza Moore, daughter of farmers, Michael and Bridget Moore, who previously had a coaching inn here until 1932. Peter McGovern purchased the premises in 1933 and renamed it The New Light, as it was the first premises to get mains electricity in Leixlip.

Tom Hannigan Snr. acquired the premises in 1949. Over the years the company enlarged and refurbished the Pound street pub, renamed Ryevale Tavern by the family and one lounge reopened in June 2001 called Darkie Moore's supposedly after Eliza's aversion to soap and water! A stable with a loft overhead for straw, a reminder of the buildings past as a coach house was also discovered during renovations, hence the suitably named The Loft restaurant to the rear of the premises.

A nightclub was established in the oldest part of the building in the 1980's. It has since been replaced by a state of the art nightclub called Zinc venue.

The Ryevale in the past has been a favourite watering hole for many famous celebrities who were guest of the Honourable Desmond Guinness in Guinness's castle. Such celebrities include Mick Jagger, Ronnie wood ( took to the stage an jammed with one of our local bands), Gerry Hall, Rod Stewart, Marianne Faithful, Jack Charlton, Bertie Ahearn, Jasmine Guinness, Hugh Grant, Jemimia Khan ~ Socialite, Christie Brown, Brendan O' Carroll, Angelica Heuston, Stephen Roche / Sean Kelly, Paul McGrath, Jimmy White, Ken Doherty, Samantha Mumba, Shane McGowan, Spider Stacey
