Destination BikeFest

Destination BikeFest

With its fun festival atmosphere and traditional Irish “craic”, the Ireland Bikefest International Motorcycle Festival has become a firm fixture on the Harley-Davidson® calendar. The sixth annual event is taking place on 1-4 June 2012, and with a fantastic line-up of live music, organised ride-outs and custom bike show, it’s already shaping up to be one not to be missed!

BikeFest is located just outside Killarney on the southwest tip of Ireland, among the picturesque lush and rolling landscapes of County Kerry. The bike-friendly roads make exploring the region a must; from the serene Lakes, to the surrounding mountains and dramatic coastline.

However, as well as riding further a field, you’ll be keen to spend time at the heart of the BikeFest event – perusing the Bike Village and enjoying the planned schedule of events that are taking place onsite throughout the weekend. As well as live music, this year’s event will also stage the infamous Custom Bike Show, test rides and of course, the Sunday Parade. You’ll also have the opportunity to win a brand new Harley-Davidson® motorcycle with your donation to the event’s chosen charity, Muscular Dystrophy Ireland.

Ireland Bike Fest is open to all Harley-Davidson® enthusiasts, whether you’re a newcomer to motorcycling or a life-long Harley® rider. Accommodation can be found onsite in the Gleneagle Hotel, The Brehon or the Riverside Apartments. Alternatively, the area boasts numerous accommodation options.
