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. A visit to Ladies' View represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Killarney online holiday planner to plot your vacation.

Ladies' View reviews
I stopped here on way back to Kilarney from Kenmare. Breathtaking view, made me proud to call Ireland my home ! more »
What amazing views. I love Kerry and all it offers. Its views, lakes, mountains and especially it's people. more »
Went up there yesterday - Worth the Trip alone - Stunning Views and Beautiful Location - Would Definitely Return without doubt. more »
The view is incredible! There is a restaurant in front of it. So you can fancy a lunch with this views. This a must stop along the ring of Kerry! Just be careful when going down to the rocks to take pics.
Lots of free and easy parking. We enjoyed this spot for a lunch car picnic. Very nice view but not worth more than the drive from Killarney. There's a cafe / restaurant / wool shop with toilet also across the street.
Beautiful look out point and a must see if driving the Ring of Kerry. Depending on the weather, you get a great view of the surrounding area. Usually not too busy as well so you can easily find a spot to park briefly.
I've been here a few times, and it's one of those places that you always want to return to.. The drive up to Ladies View is of course tigh and winding, so drive carefully on your assent & decent (obviously), but when you arrive you most definitely will not be disappointed... The view is absolutely breath-taking..
Amazing views and well worth stopping here for a break and taking a few photos. When we visited in July 2019 there was plenty of parking, with the bays right at the lookout making it super easy to enjoy this scenic spot and lookout. The road before heading in either direction doesn't have much other than fairly windy roads, so another reason to stop here and enjoy.
