With nine years of mileage under its belt, Ireland Bike Fest is a well oiled machine that gathers momentum with each passing year. It is Ireland’s largest biker festival, it’s free and every make and model of bike are welcome to attend. 
“It is one of Ireland’s fastest growing festivals,” says Breffní Ingerton, Festival Chairperson, “Just over 1,000 people attended the first festival back in 2007 and this year we expect upwards of 40,000 over the course of the weekend.” “Word of the spectacular ride-outs along the Wild Atlantic Way and the electric atmosphere of the Bike Village has spread throughout the biking community and every year more and more people arrive from all over the world.” Ireland Bike Fest takes place annually across the June Bank Holiday Weekend and is headquartered at The Gleneagle Hotel.  The Bike Village, located on the grounds of The Gleneagle, is the main hub of activity, here visitors can browse the many trader stands selling all kinds of specialised biker wares or dine at one of the festival’s many food outlets. The Village is also the base for the daily Ride-Outs along the Wild Atlantic Way - marshalled by Celtic Thunder Chapter Ireland and Gaelic Chapter Ireland, the free Harley-Davidson® demo rides, the Waterford & Dublin Harley-Davidson® Dealers, H.O.G.® & Rider Services, Jumpstart, the Technical Area and the Custom Bike Show. It is also the ideal spot to sit back and relax after a day’s touring and listen to the live bands and DJ’s perform on the festival’s outdoor stage.
Ireland Bike Fest is renowned for its line-up of free live entertainment which takes place across three stages. This year’s packed programme includes performances by The Unusual Suspects, J90, R&B, Blue Moose, Hell Raiser, Newfoundland, Hells Bells, Crossroads66, The Small Hours, Sin Iad, Live Lizzy and Devious.
