Despite the fact that roads have cat’s eyes, humps and are covered in white and yellow stripes, the motorway is still astonishingly dull. Spice up some tarmac with today’s Groupon: for €9 enjoy 15 minutes of go-karting at Galway City Karting.
Putting west coast rubber burners in the driving seat, this new indoor racing course offers speed-seekers of all ages the opportunity to exercise their skills in professionally maintained adult and children’s karts. Easily accessible via the N6 motorway, the specially designed track can also be reached by its own shuttle bus, which makes routine trips from central Galway’s Eyre square. Shifting gears to accommodate all manner of occasions, from kids’ birthday parties to stag and hen dos, the Galway City Karting crew pull out all the pit stops, offering F1 refreshments supplied by Subway sandwiches and Apache Pizza.
Hot-wheeling participants can chase the chequered flag as they embark on 15 minutes of corner-hugging excitement. Navigating their way across 20,000 square feet of heated competition, drivers can put themselves to the test as their race stats are chronicled with professional Tag Heuer equipment, producing accurate records of all the days’ victories and heartbreaking near misses.
