Brought a group of young people tonight on a first time outing and booked a 15 minute session. The kids were briefed well and equipped with the necessary helmet and boiler suit. On the first race one of the children lost control on the first lap and was sent from the track. The staff member cited health and safety as... More

I took my two grandsons carting, then into the Room2Race and on the way out they played a game of pool. They had a great time made all the more enjoyable by Marty and Stuart. The staff in the centre are really friendly and very helpful. Thanks boys.

I remember when Eddie Irvine Sports first opened in Bangor and it was just an indoor karting track. It's come a long way since then with the addition of astroturf pitches, room to race, laser contact, paintballing etc. This venue is great for kids parties (we've just booked "room to race" for my son's 11th birthday and I have to...

Absolutely fantastic spot for go karting, paintball and zorb football amongst other things. The go karts are quick and fun and the track is laid out really well for the best experience! £35 for a 5 minute qualifying and 25 minute race is well worth it!

We took a group of 11 go karters to Eddie Irvines tonight & couldn't have asked for more friendly, professional service from the two staff members track side. They were a real credit to the organisation (Jack & ?)
