Go karting is a fun activity for adults and kids alike in 20,000 sq ft of FUN. We organise Go Karting race meetings for larger groups and arrive and drive for those that wish to turn up and race (always pre call)We have special voucher days and our karting track makes a memorable birthday party or special event.We will also be concentrating on the corporate sector for events such as team building, seasonal parties and sports & social clubs within the workplace, we can arrange pit teams of drivers from different departments against each other, or test the skill of your managers against your employees !!!Stags and Hens just let us know where you are planning to spend your last weekend of freedom and the type of event you are looking for and leave the rest to us.We are ideally located near the motorway, so access is easy. Spectators are welcome for any of our events so if you have friends who want to come down to watch the go karting please bring them along.

I had to 'entertain my nephew and friend (18) who were visiting from USA. Where would I bring them? Galway City Karting sprang to mind. It was such fun. I had just as much fun as the boys. So for me, it was a win win decision. Definitely something I will volunteer to arrange for my next set of visiting... More

Having a family of boys no trip away is complete without a spot of karting. We found this track very small and with 8 karts in the go at one time it was a challenge. One I as a worried mommy wasn't overly happy about but the boys loved the banter and rubbing on the track. My youngest kart was... More

Went as a party of 10 and opted for a full, 'grand-prix' experience. Although quite expensive, it was a brilliant and worthwhile experience. Multiple, short races that pitted different people against each other with a fully computerised system supporting it meant for plenty of excitement. On the down-side, we soon became aware of which karts were the 'good' ones and... More

Am always nervous about these places. Putting children on speeding vehicals never seems sensible. However, not much to do in Galway in February and I don't want to be party pooper. So took youngest son, he's 11, quite small and not very in to taking risks. The safety talk was very good. The staff were excellent. The helmets were well... More

A group of 18 lads on a stag did this. It was great fun and I got a few practise laps in, 3 heats, a semi final and a grand final. Each heat was 10 laps. Course is short but has a few tricky corners. Karts were powerful and the staff were always patient. I'd recommend maybe having a watercooler... More
