Kartmania, provides you with the only opportunity in Co. Cork to experience first hand the thrills and spills of adrenaline filled real head to head indoor kart racing. Conveniently located at GB Business Park, Little Island just 5 minutes from the Jack Lynch Tunnel, at Kartmania we welcome the public, private groups both small and large, corporate events, team building programs, birthdays, new product launches, training seminars, meetings and other special occasions.

Doesn’t sound fast? Come experience it for yourself! After arriving at our racing facility you will get suited up, watch our driver briefing video and get ready to race. All of our karts are identical, so you can be sure that the racer’s only advantage is skill. Every lap is timed and you receive a printout of your lap times and finishing position for bragging rights. See you at the races!

I have been here twice in the past 2 months. I love karting. This track is quite small and there are not many opportunities to overtake, however it is still good fun. Before you go on the track, you have to watch a safety video. I have been here so many times so I do not know why we have... More

It felt like we were bothering the staff ... the receptionist barely spoke to us or looked at us . Felt like we weren't welcome . We were then told to go get changed with no help or guidance to what we should wear (balaclava,helmet, jacket and gloves) then had to find the track ourselves again when we asked for... More

We had a great trip planned for the family only to be dissapointed by the service we received here. 5 of us were out with a competitive edge to be left with one member left with a go kart that was broken. He was waiting for many laps to be assisted and wasnt. He was switched to a second kart... More

My Son now 8 loves Kartmania. From age 6 he used the junior karts which are great for smallies to have a karting experience, this uses small hand controlled karts set at one speed on a smaller track. He is now tall enough to use a cadet kart and had his first big track experience recently and absolutely loved it.... More

From start to finish, it was a great experience. Safety is very important and they delivered on that. Staff are very friendly and very professional. Karts were great fun. I would highly recommend this place.

Well worth a visit, costs me a fortune as its so much fun you keep going back. Some tight corners , a long straight to really go for it. Plenty of space to pass out and gives a 2nd route to get around people if you make the bend.
