Bibire is also a keen enthusiast of the author J. R. R. Tolkien whom he credits as the motivation for his academic career.

Bibire took a BA from Aberystwyth University in 1967, a B.Phil. in Old English at Oxford University in 1969.[3]

He co-edited with Gareth Williams a book entitled 'Sagas, Saints and Settlements' from a 1996 interdisciplinary symposium at the University of St Andrews, exploring the history, culture, and literature of the Viking Age and medieval Iceland and Scandinavia.[4] ('Sagas, Saints and Sacrifice' is the same book under a previous title.)
