The town as the tourists say is very majestic and mysterious. The town is situated in Western Europe. The coastline of the city is very rocky and is covered by km and km of beaches around it. It is very close to the cold Atlantic Ocean. The culture of this city is very rich and it’s very natural. The history here is rarely explored leaving it gold for its visitors. Dingle city is the origination point for all hiking trails famous around Ireland. The streets around here are picturesque and colorful. Here are the places you must visit.
The Beehive Huts
The beehive huts are pretty conical and are numbered more than a hundred thousand, spread across the west past Ventry. The huts were once the homes for several local families and old monks. These are very famous as only the old aged stones were used in making of the huts. Even in hardest of storms or rains these huts have remained intact and never inched from their original architecture. It has no mortar that holds it together, which when you take the tour can see for yourself and be highly fascinated.
Dingly Whiskey Distillery
This city is famous for the house produced beer, Guinness. Once when you’re traveling through the emerald isle then this one distillery is a must visit. Though the number of distilleries in Ireland has vanished very hastily, this one has remained the most popular for creating exquisite whiskey. This one is relatively a very small operating industry but a blooming one. You can take the tour of this distillery and see the process; they also offer sampling tastings. If it is a rainy day you are stuck in with nothing else to do, head here. And rainy days in dingle are very common.

Darwin is a beautiful Australian city located in its Northern Territory. During the colonial times, the city served as a frontier outpost that prevented the entry of invaders.

Located in Fannie Bay, the Museum and Art Gallery is a major tourist spot in Darwin suburb. Established in 1981, the place is known for its art and cultural exhibits.

I would definitely recommend this place if you are interested in art and culture. The place allows free admissions and the parking is also free.
Your Darwin tour cannot be complete without paying a visit to this amazing beach destination. Mindil Beach lies close to the city’s central business district. We had a great time shopping at the Sunset Market which is a major feature of the beach. Note that the market runs only for few months during the Dry season. At the time of sunset, lots of people visit the beach to enjoy the unforgettable sight. Note that, owing to crocodiles and jellyfishes, tourists often avoid the idea of swimming.
Crocosaurus Cove is known for its collection of crocodiles. The visitors are allowed to see crocodiles and even feed them. The process is popularly known as”the cage of death”. The place is recognized for its largest collection of reptiles and animals like turtles. Besides watching the crocodiles, the tour also helped us in understanding their breeding process and various stages of life.
