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.

  • Really nice view. The drive is a little long and dangerous tonget there but worth it. Go there when everything is green!  more »
  • Obligatory stop inside the Ring of Kerry Tour. The views are beautiful. We were on a day with a good time and at the end of the afternoon it improved the experience.

  • Great little stop on the Ring of Kerry. Maybe you will be blessed with a sunny day; I was not, but still got some great pictures.  more »

  • 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.
