WIN: an overnight stay & breakfast for two at the Beacon Hotel plus lots more!


The Beacon Hotel, are sponsoring the Dare to be Different Style Awards at Bulmer’s Live at Leopardstown for the second year and they have a fantastic competition up for grabs for one lucky U Mag reader.


Bulmer’s Live at Leopardstown is back and as usual the line-up they have in store from now until mid-August, is perfect summer evening listening. The Boomtown Rats, The Strypes, and Booka Brass have all yet to play so make sure you don’t miss out.

But what would a day at the races be without a hint of glamour? For the second year the Beacon Hotel are sponsoring the ‘best dressed’ category at the festival and there are over €1,500 in prizes to be won and each week too, no less. Every week a finalist will be chosen and then invited back as VIP Guests for the festival finale on August 11th to compete for the ‘Dare to be Different’ top prize valued at €3,000.

Certainly worth getting all dolled up for, if you ask us.




The Beacon, a deluxe, boutique hotel is located in Sandyford and really close to Dundrum Town Centre which will take care of all your shopping needs and only a few minutes from Leopardstown Racecourse, home to the Bulmer’s Live Festival.


You can sip cocktails in The Crystal Bar, which is decked out in contemporary style and not to mention innovative, or enjoy dinner in the award-winning My Thai restaurant. If you’re in need of a bit of relaxation and a re-charge then The Beacon Hotel is where you need to be. They also have free parking and free access to their fitness studio if you fancy getting your workout on while you’re there.
