Ladies View Killarney

1 comment

Ladies View is about 12 miles from Killarney on the N71 road headed towards Kenmare. The view from the traditional look-out area is probably the best known of Killarney and is a major stopping point for visitors. There is no perfect time to go there, it is always busy, but with the mountains the best photos would be taken either mid-morning or mid afternoon.

Queen Victorias ladies-in-waiting visited here during the royal visit in 1861. They were so enraptured with the view that it was named after them.

There is a bit more to this place than just one vista. If you walk up the road from the café to the first bend and follow the small path to the right, the whole panorama of the upper lake opens up. This is probably more breathtaking and certainly quieter.
