The Beacon Hotel is located close to Skill Zone, Dublin’s first multi-sport indoor circuit offering a range of sports activities, including rugby, basketball, tennis, climbing, and soccer.

If you are looking for something different to do during your stay at The Beacon, Skill Zone offers fun and activity that will please the whole family.
Finishing one circuit takes about 90 minutes and you have between 1 – 12 tries in every cage. Compete against the top 10 zone score or challenge your friends and family. A group can contain up to 3 people. Complete the challenges to the best of your ability and earn points based on your score, with a max score of 100 points.
