Now in its 14th year, BikeFest is a must-attend annual international festival attracting all brand bike enthusiasts in 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 plan on making 2022 the best yet having had to cancel the 2020 and 2021 festival due to Covid-19.
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, on the grounds of the Gleneagle Hotel and INEC. Add in an action, a 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.
