“Lovely stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Spotlessly clean, spacious & comfortable guesthouse in a quiet location. Fantastic views to enjoy over the 1st class breakfast cooked freshly to order. Perfect base for exploring Dingle. Would love to visit again soon.

This is very comfortable accommodation in a quiet location on the waterfront within walking distance of the town center. Rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. There is a nice assortment of books to read and local restaurant menus to browse in the common area. There wasn't a restaurant/pub on premises at the time of my stay, but while we were discussing wine, the manager offered to bring some back while in town- very hospitable! My stay was very enjoyable!

This was a nice guesthouse overlooking the bay in Dingle Ireland. It was a beautiful house run by the family. It amazed me as the son took our bags to the room and refused a tip. It was very clean place to stay and the walk to town was only about 5 minutes. Very quaint town with a lot of places to eat and enjoy drinks.

We stayed here for a few nights just after Christmas, and it was really excellent. The rooms are immaculate and staff are very friendly and efficient but not intrusive. Like other reviewers have said already, the breakfast is outstanding! I would absolutely would recommend this property and I would definitely stay there again. Well done Heaton's!

Our time at the Heaton's Guesthouse was truly wonderful. Our hosts were charming, the breakfasts were scrumptious. Our room was bright, spotless and comfortable. We loved every minute of our stay here.

We stayed at Heatons for 2 nights in late October 2012. We picked this B and B because of the excellent reviews it had received from other Tripadvisor members, and we have to agree with the favourable comments already posted.
The place is well located on the waterfront just on the outskirts of Dingle. We took a junior suite, which was large and comfortable, with a nice bathroom and a sea view. On arrival we were offered the use of the guest laptop, and informed that the house had full wi-fi coverage. Our bed was huge, and proved to be a welcome retreat after a day spent hiking along the cliff top paths around the area.
The unique selling point for this place, however, must be the breakfast. Real freshly squeezed fruit juice, home-baked breads and scones, cheese, pancakes to order.....mmmmm!
You can even have brown sugar, cream and Drambuie on your oatmeal. It's a treat, and a great way to start the day.
The owner, Cameron, made sure that all his guests were attended to, and he was a helpful source of advice for those wishing to explore West Kerry. We spent our time exploring the stunning scenery and wild landscape west of Dingle. During long walks overlooking the ocean and the Blasket Islands we hardly met another person, and felt priviledged to have this beautiful place to ourselves.
Dingle is a pretty little town with plenty of coffee shops and restaurants. We certainly plan to return.

Everything about Heaton's was wonderful! It is spacious and beautifully decorated, yet comfortable and very welcoming. The breakfasts are outstanding. It is situated on the edge of Dingle and on the water which made the location perfect. I found it very relaxing, quiet, and refreshing. The hospitality was terrific, and their attention to detail appreciated. Thank you, Cameron and family!
