Motorcycles, music, mutts and more at Ireland BikeFest 2018

Get ready for the 12th annual Ireland Bike Fest – and this year’s event looks set to be bigger and better than ever before!

Across 72 hours of biker heaven, soak up the sights of some stunning machines and kick back to the sounds of brilliant live music. Ireland’s only free open biker festival takes places across Ireland’s June bank holiday weekend, meaning there’s no excuse not to make the most of what’s on offer.

And like last year, Ireland Bike Fest 2018 will also be supporting Muscular Dystrophy Ireland. The charity benefited hugely in 2017 – a repeat this year would be terrific!

What’s on at Ireland Bike Fest 2018?

Head on down to Killarney and you’ll be spoilt for things to do. From riding world-famous routes like the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way through to joining the annual parade on Sunday 3 June 2018, you’ll have the chance to mix with bikers just as passionate as yourself from all corners of the world.

If you’re a fan of customs, the Custom Bike Show offers four different prizes of €500, as well as recognition in a host of other categories. So whether you want to enter your own creation, or just admire the love and craft that has gone into making some of the most eye-catching bikes you’ll ever see, it’s well worth a visit.

And for something completely different, don’t forget to bring your four-legged friend along for the Ireland Bike Fest Novelty Dog Show on Saturday 2 June at the Brehon Hotel.

Free Harley-Davidson demo rides at Ireland Bike Fest 2018

If you’re looking to get hands-on with a bike or two, sign up for a free Harley-Davidson demo ride at the festival’s headquarters on the grounds on the Gleneagle Hotel.

The Bike Village will also be packed with its usual hustle and bustle, so whether you’re seeking out food and drink, or looking to browse the masses of trader stands offering everything from clothing and helmets through to the latest biker gadgets, you certainly won’t be bored!

And to cap off everything, there’ll be the usual three stages of live music. The Affray will be headlining on Friday 1 June; Joanovarc will be rocking on Saturday 2 June; and Hells Bells will bring down the curtain on Sunday 3 June. Don’t miss it!
