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
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.
