We had a brilliant time karting this morning. The staff are very good and the place is well managed. My daughter was very nervous as it was her first time and they took the time to give her tips on what to do. Her confidence grew throughout the time we spent on the track. Delighted it was just us four on the track as would have been nervous if other drivers where on with the kids. Great to have the neck collars as well to support your neck as have not seen that in other karting venues in Ireland that we have gone to. It's hard work on the arms. Well worth it. It would be great on a rainy day also as indoors.

What a great day out for the kids, they had 30 mins on the track and loved every minute of it. Even so they wanted to race again. The cars were quick enough for young children and suited my 9 / 10 and 13 year olds. Great value for money. Will definitely be visiting again soon.

Paid for grand prix. Advertised is practice session, 3 heats, semi finals and a grand final. We didn't get a practice session, apparently they don't do that even though on the website and literally on their wall it states they do.... I mean it's part of what you're paying for but at no point prior and including being there we were not told this.
The tracking system failed in the first set of semifinals(where the group is split into 2 halves), no times or positions were recorded, so they re ran and again it failed to record anything.

So then they with 0 apology or apathy and full of defensive unhelpfulness they completely cancelled the semi final for the other half of the guys who had patiently waited for their turn. I suggested running it regardless of time recording we could use our eyes to record who finished where etc... This was met with stonewalled confusion at the concept... The half of the guys who didn't get semi final were promised extra track time after the final. We Ran the final with meaningless positions. Then the extra track time wasn't delivered as they rushed the next group on. When I queried why we didn't get the extra time, the response was an unapologetic "it's because you didn't demand it straight after the final".... Didn't demand the thing we paid for? No apology for any of the problems lack of track time, lack of time recording.
Just defensive belligerence.
Also at least 1 kart broke down during each race but that's just the icing on the cake.

I just want reiterate at no point was an apology for their failing systems given or any remorse at all, very much felt like somehow we were at fault for asking to do what we had paid for.....

The track is also tiny, but I wouldn't review them down for that, it is what it is.

Got the Grand Prix package with a group of friends.

Advertised practice time on the track which we never got. This is advertised on their signage and their website.

During the race there was always at least one broken/slow car. They claimed to have swapped it out but I think they just replaced it with another broken one.

During the semi final, the system had an error and didn’t record the race. That half of our group had to race again and then they system thought it was the second race and started the final. As a result half the group missed out on track time. To “compensate” they put everyone into the final together which sucked. On top of that half the group missed out on track time.

The staff were really unhelpful and didn’t care. They offered extra track time but never delivered on it. We didn’t even get an apology. Their attitude was really poor.

Overall the track is quite small and suited to 4 cars max. Wouldn’t recommend at all.

False advertising on track time. Belligerent and uncaring staff. The carts were extremely distinct in quality and the track was very small.

We bought groupon vouchers for this. One of the kids wasn't up for it when we got there. They were extremely nice and encouraging to him, without putting any pressure.They very kindly offered to allow us use vouchers on another day instead. Small downside is safety video not really geared towards kids, but otherwise lovely staff and great facility

We had fun here Saturday last - my son was a novice but was shown the ropes by the patient staff which were friendly, helpful and really made sure we had a fab time overall.

There was a good info system so we could track who was in the lead etc and all the equipment was in good shape. I would recommend advance booking to ensure you are not disappointed. Have fun!

It is Great way of spending time with friends without leaving the town. Track is exeptionally big, especially that is located on first floor of Warehouse located on the industrial Estate. Go-Carts are cool and fast enough, not as fast as Pallas carting but Its Great fun in the city. Prices are not that high as well, so I recommend to everyone. Have a fun :-)

Went go karting my partner & I with our 14 yr & 9 yr old while holidaying in Galway. Booked the day before and went on a Thursday as there was a half price deal. We got half an hour on the track and was the best fun ever. We were the only 4 on the track.Would definitely recommend as family event.
