“Not great”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

We were visiting Galway and saw an offer for go karting on groupon so got the voucher but then took me ages to get this booked and left messages which werent returned. We changed the time on the day again after a few tries before they answered but didnt seem busy. The place itself is clean and well kitted out and track is bit short but fine. The downfall is the staff who really werent interested or helpful and I had to ask them to help find a helmet to fit my son and never say hello or looked up when we left never mind say thank you. Not a great attitude to have when running a business in a recession.

“Fun for young & old alike.”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

What can I say other then AMAZING! As soon as my lot get out of the go-karts they're asking when they're going again. I had my daughters 16th birthday there last week & everyone had a brilliant time, even the almost 67 year old granny, who's thinking of having her 67th birthday there in a few weeks. :D We were able to bring in a cake and have a little party for her in the waiting area upstairs where they could have a game of pool or have fun with the arcade games. The location is perfect, loads of safe parking and very easy to find. All of the lads are so helpful and friendly and always willing to help out when needed. I would highly recommend a trip there anytime. But remember to book in advance because it's so popular most of the days are booked up days in advance. :)
The one and only drawback is there doesn't seem to be wheelchair access. I had a knee injury the day I was there and found it painful to navigate the stairs.

“Always good fun”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

Definitely gets the testosterone flowing and brings out the competitive edge in everyone too... Hadn't done it before but picked it up handy enough and got the hang of it!

Great location and something to pass the evening for all ages. The fella on reception was a bit grumpy though.

“A really enjoyable thing to do”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

Did this last Friday night. It was very busy and we had to wait a while - later than we were supposed to be but really enjoyed it.
