Celebrating its 16th anniversary in 2024, BikeFest is a must-attend annual international festival attracting all brand motorcycle enthusiasts in their thousands from all over the world. As one of Europe’s premier free open motorcycle festivals, this 3-day motorcycle and rock music extravaganza takes place across Ireland’s June Bank Holiday weekend.
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-packed, fun-fueled 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 celebrated Killarney lakes and running alongside the Atlantic Ocean, on world-famous routes such as the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way, it’s a weekend away like no other!
