Abbeyleix is a town in County Laois, Ireland, located around 14 kilometres south of the county town of Portlaoise.
Abbeyleix was formerly located on the N8, the main road from Dublin to Cork. At one point there was up to 15,000 vehicles passing along the town's main street every day. Since May 2010, however, the town has been bypassed by the M8 motorway, with the former N8 consequently downgraded to the N77 national secondary road.
