Cork Listed Among 'Best Cities For Kayaking'

#Kayaking - Urban kayaking is all the rage these days, with Dublin Bay a particularly popular destination for locals and visiting paddlers alike.

But Ireland's second city – once known as the 'Venice of Ireland' – is ready to stake its own claim thanks to its inclusion in Telegraph Travel's 10 best cities for kayaking.

Jim Kennedy's Atlantic Sea Kayaking runs trips that provide "a watery view of this maritime city's quays, wharfs and bridges" besides longer excursions out into Cork Harbour towards Cobh.

And Cork stands in some cosmopolitan company in this list that includes Berlin, San Francisco, New York, Melbourne, Cape Town and, of course, the famous canals of Venice itself.
