Killarney will be shaking to the rumble of Ireland BikeFest once again this June bank holiday weekend.

Now in its 13th year, Ireland BikeFest is an action-packed, three-day festival that attracts thousands of motorcycle owners and enthusiasts from all over the world to the Kingdom.  Fantastic scenery, touring routes, hospitality and free live entertainment make it one of the must-attend motorcycle festivals of the year for both bikers and non-bikers. All makes and models of bike are welcome.

Highlights for 2019 include daily ride-outs along the southwest section of the Wild Atlantic Way, free Harley-Davidson demo rides, H.O.G. hospitality and info, a ladies garage party with special guest Holly Richardson, a novelty dog show, custom bike show, parade and lots of free live indoor and outdoor entertainment day and night. 

There’ll also be the outdoor stage located in the heart of the ‘Bike Village’, the favourite bikers’ haunt in the Harley Bar and the main stage in the INEC where revellers will rock on late into the night.

Located on the grounds of the INEC Killarney, the Bike Village will feature retail stands and traders, merchandise, Lemonrock motorcycle rentals, the Harley-Davidson ‘Experiential Area’ and a family zone, with plenty of places to eat or grab a drink.

And not to worry if you’re not a biker - events such as Riding 101, Intro to Motorcycling and Jumpstart Rider Experience are just for you. Start the engine, go through the gears and enjoy – there’s no experience or licence necessary. 

You don’t even have to own a bike to enjoy Ireland Bikefest. You can just bask in the glory of some slick, well-built machines and enjoy the unique party and festival atmosphere. You might even win a Harley-Davidson in a raffle in aid of Muscular Dystrophy Ireland.
