Go-Kart racing in or around Limerick ?

Hi fellow tripadvisors ,

its my sons 14th birthday at the end of the month and I need to get my act together . Im trying to organize a trip for around 6 to 8 young teens and hit on the idea of Go-Karting . I also was thinking of Quad bikes , but then thought Go-karts might be safer . Has anyone tried Go-Karting in or around the Limerick area , can anyone recommend anyplace to go to keep teens happy for a couple of hours ? As close to Limerick as possible would be good as we would be coming from the Tipperary side , many thanks in advance for any help given

regards Deedee

School tours use this company so that's reassuring.

Thank you for your suggestions . Would I have to go to Pallaskenry to get to Kilcornan Karting? I would be looking for the quickest route so as to keep the kids quiet ; )

Kilcornan is on the N69 road from Limerick to Foynes. From Tipp follow the M7 as far as the Shannon Tunnel. Leave the M7 before the tunnel and follow signs for the N69. Kilcornan is about 10km from there. No need to go through Pallas.

I have used Kilcornan for teens birthdays in the past all the kids enjoyed the races. Very safe and well run.

Nope - right outside the city, Bean A will give you better directions but it's in a retail park near ...(tons of fun?) a plethora of car and other units...check Harvey Normans etc
