Now in its 13th year, BikeFest is a must attend annual international festival attracting all brand bike enthusiasts in their tens of thousands from all over the world. As one of Europe’s premier free open motorcycle festivals, this 3 day motorcycle and music extravaganza takes place across Ireland’s June Bank Holiday weekend and plans on going larger again in 2019 to celebrate its teens! If you thought 2018 was a cracker..you ain’t seen nothing yet!
The real attraction of this fiesta is the craic, goodwill and convivial atmosphere for all. From bikers to non-bikers or even aspiring bikers, visitors, tourists, families and locals, BikeFest has something for all!! The festival allure can best be described by broad smiles and good humour as everyone soaks up the atmosphere in the Bike Village located 1 mile from Killarney town centre, on the Muckross Road, in the grounds of the Gleneagle Hotel and INEC. Add in an action, fun fuelled programme of events and activities, 3 live music stages day and night, coupled with the opportunity to ride the twisting tracks around the mountains, high above the lakes and running alongside the sea, on world-famous routes such as the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way it’s a weekend away like no other.
The festival’s chosen charity is Muscular Dystrophy Ireland who will benefit from the generosity of thousands of bikers and visitors in 2019 in the now infamous Win a Harley-Davidson® draw and Ride Sunday global fundraising initiative on Sunday 2nd June.
