Waterways - Canoeing and Kayaking

The Newpark Hotel Kilkenny is situated on the upper banks of the River Nore which flows through the city of Kilkenny.

In addition to the stunning River Nore, a number of beautiful rivers such as the Kings River and the Dinan provide a perfect location for canoeing and kayaking.

These rivers offer long stretches of peaceful waterways and for the more daring a number of challenging weirs and rapids. At a slower pace of life, the rivers Nore and Barrow provide a perfect location for angling and barge hire.
