Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The standard of rooms in Heatons is extremely high. They are beautifully kitted out and include dressing gowns, slippers, water and tea/coffee facilities. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are fabulous. Sitting in the lounge and looking over the bay is such a relaxing treat and a great selection of drinks is available on request. The location is so handy to the main town - it's only a five minute walk into the centre of Dingle. The stand-out feature of Heatons is the breakfast. There are multiple delicious options and the quality is phenomenal. The goat's cheese omlette with black pudding, basil oil and tomato chutney is to die for and the bread pudding with rhubarb is, literally, pudding for breakfast!

I stayed here for 3 nights with my husband in August, i don't do B&B's normally, BUT this is one very special place, it is immaculately clean everywhere, the room we stayed in was as per the photo on the website, rare. The bed was one of the most comfortable i have ever slept in,spotlessly clean, crisp white linen, beautiful soft towels that actually wrap around you, the shower was amazing.
The breakfast room is pristine, the tables have white linen cloths changed after each use, the peaceful atmosphere at breakfast is so relaxing, very calm, no shouting or banging from the kitchen bliss, & then the menu for breakfast ,omg, the granola cocktail & eggs benedict i could have eaten it for breakfast , lunch & dinner the staff in the breakfast room Alma & Joe are an asset to Heatons they go about the room with such calmness & so courteous, nothing is too much trouble. The location is great also , park up the car & stroll down to the town 6 to 7 minute walk. This a gem of a B&B, i cannot wait to return, if only you did dinner too now that would be amazing, look forward to returning soon.

From the start my girlfriend and I felt like we were at our Aunts/Granny’s house. It was so clean, warm and friendly. The rooms were spotless, the beds were extremely comfy, the towels were fluffy and the shower gels provided were high class.
Would definitely recommend and will defo stay here again when we visit Dingle again after COVID.
Well done Heatons Guest House!

When we arrived at this amazing guest house we were greeted with a warm friendly welcome by the owner David Heaton. We were shown to a beautiful room which had a lovely balcony where we could sit and enjoy the unrestricted views of Dingle Bay. The standard of the room was 5 star with chocolates on our pillows, bathrobes, fluffy white towel and The White Room toiletries. After a wonderful night’s sleep we were treated to the most extensive breakfast menu we have ever seen. Everything looked so tempting - all I can say is we were so glad we were staying for a few nights to taste it all.
We shall definitely be returning to stay in Heaton’s again and if you are looking for a place to stay in Dingle I would thoroughly recommend staying in Heaton’s Guesthouse.

I had the pleasure of being one of the first guests in the 2022 season. David and his team offer the best of everything — beautiful and meticulous rooms and common areas, warm and gracious hospitality, and a sumptuous breakfast (scones, yogurt, and Chef’s Omelette are highly recommended. I look forward to a return visit.

The guest house is beautiful and exceptionally well-maintained both in the guest rooms and the common areas. The full breakfast (included in the price) is absolutely delicious...lots of variety with homemade items on linen-topped tables and delivered by well-trained servers in a bright and airy dining room overlooking the water. The location is on the "quiet" end of town but within walking distance of all of the restaurants, pubs and stores. David is a welcoming host with lots of good suggestions for dinner reservations. Heaton's Guesthouse is a perfect choice for your visit to the Dingle peninsula. Highly recommended. Great value. And don't miss the homemade, delicious chocolate cake, tea and coffee served every afternoon at 3:30 in the lobby!

We visit Heatons at least twice a year and every time it’s better than the last! Between the setting, food and warm welcome from David it’s one of our favourite places to spend time with our kids, family or on our own for a get away weekend. The rooms are always spotless with the most comfortable beds guaranteeing a great nights sleep. The proximity to Dingle town centre means you are in walking distance to the brilliant choice of bars and restaurants. It’s real home from home with the addition of an amazing breakfast menu that you want to order everything from!

I cannot praise David and staff enough for the excellent service and superb food. The tea and delicious chocolate cake on arrival set the scene for a welcoming, sociable stay at Heatons. The chocolate cake is the best I have had anywhere in the world. The breakfast menu is outstanding using all local high quality produce which results in a magnificent dining experience. The decor is tasteful and of high quality and I would highly recommend a stay in this excellent guesthouse which is very reasonably priced for the standard provided.

David Heaton and his team work really hard to ensure guests at this B&B/hotel have a fantastic stay. The location overlooking Dingle Bay is idyllic, its a short stroll away to Dingle town. The rooms are spotless, luxurious and well equipped. The standard of the food is first class. The famous breakfasts may be equalled elsewhere, but no where that I've ever stayed. The extensive menu is mouth watering (there are a choice of 7 different omelettes) and nothing disappointed over our 4 day stay. Can't recommend Heatons highly enough, if you're going to dingle, treat yourself, stay there.

We stayed for just one night in Heatons wonderful guesthouse, wish it could have been longer. We had two beautiful rooms, sumptuous carpets, bathrobes and slippers, chocolates on our comfy pillows. Heatons is just a tiny walk from the centre of Dingle town, so perfect for a night of enjoying the pubs and restaurants! We all slept soundly and woke to the incredible view across Dingle Bay, on one of the sunniest mornings of the Summer. After a mini stroll, we went to breakfast in the large elegantly decorated ( and extremely well ventilated) dining room. Breakfast was absolutely fabulous! Freshly squeezed juices, granola with rhubarb, greek yoghurt and honey, yum! Then followed by fantastic scrambled eggs with local smoked salmon, also freshly baked croissants, and delicious breads, and divine warm from the oven scones with jam abundant with berries! I have been here before and I will definitely be back!

Yes, there would be several options for your friend for I cooked breakfast. They had beautiful open face omelette with cheese, and fresh spinach I believe. There was also a lovely selection of fresh and cooked fruit and local cheeses on the continental breakfast side board. You will have a wonderful time there. Heaton’s is just a fabulous place to stay!

No, no self serve laundry. I am sure if needed, the lovely owners who bend over backward to help their guests, could provide directions to one.
