“Not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have enjoyed karting at a number of tracks, both in Ireland and abroad. This was my first time at Kartmania, as I had a discount deal. I went with 7 friends for a 100 lap Grand Prix.
The girl at reception was friendly and helpful, and the place was clean and well laid out, with a good choice of suits and helmets.
The problem was with the track and karts. It is one of the shortest tracks I have ever been on, and the karts seemed to have trouble getting up to speed. Because of this, the tyres took ages to warm up. It was also very difficult to overtake, as there are only 2 straights, neither of which offer many chances to get to top speed.
The marshalls were also over-the-top with regard to bumping. I'm all for getting lunatic drivers to slow down or cool off in the pits when repeatedly taking other drivers out, but we were getting warned regularly just for touching cars on corners.
For the price we paid it was ok, but I don't think we'll be booking this karting track again.

“Great for some company fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We were treated to this as part of our business accelerator programme, and as such has about 14 people race each other in two groups, and then a finals race. It was great fun, and I highly recommend it to local businesses who need a little lift.

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

I've lost track of the amount of times I've gone here! Great Fun! Compared to other karting tracks it is cheaper also! They also host an Endurance competition once a month so if you want a bit more competition it's the place to be! Love it!

“Great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Great karts, good track, friendly staff. Not to sure about the membership options where you pay so that you don't have to watch the safety video, but great otherwise.
