Ladies' View, Killarney

(4.6/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Few places in Ireland have been photographed as often as Ladies' View, a spot that offers unspoiled views of the famous Lakes of Killarney. The scenic point's name stems from a visit of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, who came here in 1861 and afterward told everyone they met of the deep impression the landscape of sky, water, and mountains had left on them. This is one of Ireland's best-known panoramas, but there is a bit more to this place than just one vista. The lookout also contains a modern cafe and a well-stocked gift shop, selling rugs, throws, scarves, and sheepskins. Try to time your visit for mid-morning or mid-afternoon, when the landscape is most conducive to photos.

  • Its a very nice view on a clear day but the ride can be a little disconcerting because the road is narrow and in the afternoon the sun is right in your eyes. 
  • We did this as part of our Killarney National Park Trip. You do need a clear day to get the true scale of the view but it is worth the stop 
  • Truly magnificent views from ladies view, Spectacular view of the lakes of Killarney, You just have to be careful as this is a very busy road with tourist traffic,

  • Views are amazing. Need to time this one right either 1 hour after sunrise or shortly before sunset for the best views. Will not dissappoint.
  • Ladies view is one of the greatest point of the Ring of Kerry. It is a stop by to appreciate this astonishing landscape.
  • Really nice place to relax after cycling through the Gap of Dunloe. One minus of this place is the fact that there is a carpark and the view is wasted by parked cars... Also dangerous because of the cars pulling of the carpark.
  • Amazing view point accessible to all (directly on the side of the road)
  • Of all the picturesque views I experienced in County Clare and County Kerry, Ladie's View might be my favorite. Incredible scenery.
