History | Kylemore Karting Dublin - Dublin Go Karting

Kylemore Karting was opened in October 1992 by late Irish motorsport legend Stuart Cosgrave. Prior to opening Kylemore Karting, Stuart’s passion for motorsport was highlighted by his illustrious and extensive career in the sport. Stuart raced throughout Ireland and the UK for decades and his most notable victory came in 1983 when he won the  1983 Irish Mini Championship. In addition to racing, Stuart also operated the Donington and Brans Hatch international race circuits in the UK, but most notably, Stuart created and operated Ireland’s first international racing circuit, Mondello Park. Essentially, Mondello Park created a platform for Irish Motorsport racers to compete on the international racing scene.

In the early 1990’s, Stuart researched creating a leisure Karting venue in Ireland after visiting similar venues in the United Kingdom. Stuart utilizing his entrepreneurial skillset decided to create Ireland’s first indoor Karting arena and Kylemore Karting was born. Kylemore Karting, still in its original location, had one single level track until the turn of the millennium. 
In 2000, Kylemore Karting received its first major track modification. Exciting flyovers and underpasses were added to the track, creating a unique racing experience for all racers. The overall track length was also increased by 100 meters. State of the art spectator facilities were also introduced, ensuring those not driving were brought as close to the action as possible.

Kylemore Karting joined the European Karting elite in December 2002 when Track 2 was opened to the public. Track 2 is filled with overpasses, flyovers and banked corners confirming Kylemore’s reputation as one of the best and most exciting karting arenas in Europe. Our latest addition, Track 3, was opened in March 2009, giving customers an option of three exciting and challenging circuits. 

Kylemore Karting celebrated its 25 year anniversary in October 2017. This is a milestone that we are extremely proud of and we would like to extend thanks to all our visitors and valued customers from throughout the years, that have played a part in our journey so far. We can ensure that we will continue improving the Kylemore Karting experience and look forward to providing Ireland’s premier Karting experience for many years to come.
