4.7/5 based on 1,600+ 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.

  • Try the honeycomb ice cream! See the gorgeous views also. Just watch out... when the ground is wet, it's like sinking sand! We enjoyed some baileys coffee here. The gift shop is reasonably priced also...  read more »
  • Lovely viewing point of the lakes on a clear day. Unfortunately can be dismal on a wet and windy day. Can get very congested but most people don't stay long. 
  • Majestic vista across Killarney National Park along the Ring of Kerry. Named after Queen Victoria's Ladies-in-Waiting who, apparently, stopped here in 1861. 
  • 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.
  • Of all the picturesque views I experienced in County Clare and County Kerry, Ladie's View might be my favorite. Incredible scenery.
  • Beautiful with good parking a and café
  • Amazing view point accessible to all (directly on the side of the road)
  • Beautiful view for relax , and nice shop
