The highlight of the motorbike calender in Ireland this year, is sure to be the Ireland Bike Fest which is taking place in Killarney, County Kerry from 6th-8th June 2008.
About the event
The Ireland Bike Fest is to be held once again in the picturesque town of Killarney in County Kerry. It’s Ireland only free open biker festival so it’s sure to be a hit with biking enthusiasts from all over Ireland and beyond! Of course you don’t even have to own a bike to enjoy the festival, so just pop along to the Gleneagle Hotel grounds (where the Bike Village will be located) between 6th – 8th June and soak up the atmosphere.
The three-day event will feature daily ride-outs, open air live music and bands, a custom bike show, an expo tent and lots of stalls selling merchandise and the likes.
This biker fest would not be complete without a good line up of entertainment at the end of each day. Concerts take place in the Gleneagle Hotel and the INEC (Irish National Events Centre). This year’s line up includes Brush Shields, the Baker Boys, Paul Comofort and Rob Strong among others.
