Located on the grounds of the INEC Killarney, one mile from Killarney town centre, the Bike Village is the main hub of activity throughout the weekend, featuring retail stands and traders, merchandise, Lemonrock motorcycle rentals, the Harley-Davidson® Experiential area and a family zone.

If you have dreamed about getting on a motorcycle, or even if you’re piled high with excuses not to ride, events such as Riding 101 – Intro to Motorcycling and JUMPSTARTTM Rider Experience is just for you! Hear the roar of the engine and go through the gears – no experience necessary! Ireland BikeFest Killarney also welcomes visitors, tourists and families who just want to experience the Bike Village, have fun and enjoy the free live entertainment. You do not even have to own a bike; you can just bask in the glory of some slick, well-built machines and enjoy the unique party and festival atmosphere of Ireland BikeFest.
