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
Fabulous views from Ladies view Killarney on the Kenmare road. Stopped off at the ladies view Cafe Restaurant and bar had a Pint of Guinness here nice. Staff are very helpful. Great spot for tourists lovely spot for taking photographs. Great views of the mountains and lakes bit of climb up but if in a car not that hard. Plenty nice places to take photos from.
Breath taking view... We happen to experience multiple rainbows at this view for couple of minutes... It felt just like a scene out of fairy tale.... There is a Cafe too which has roof top arrangement to enjoy this view in summer...
