Welcome to the BigStyle Atlantic Lodge, our favorite place to be in the world.

The lodge is centered around our beautiful 14 en-suite bedroom hotel overlooking one of Ireland’s most spectacular views, but there’s plenty more to it. We have an in house surf school, a yoga studio with a view, spectacular indoor and outdoor chilling areas, the Big Dipper, ‘Ireland’s Most Scenic Spa’… and a fantastic traditional pub and restaurant called ‘P.Dans’.

All sitting right on the Wild Atlantic Way beside world class surf beaches and views. Read on for all the info.

What’s on offer



The Lodge is located a 25 minute drive south of Westport, just outside the town of Louisburgh.

From our hilltop vantage point we look out over Cross and Carrowniskey surf beaches, the world class flat water kitesurfing spot of Cross Lake and all the way to Croagh Patrick.

All within a few minutes drive.

Getting to the Lodge

Self Drive

It’s just under 4 hours from Dublin and Cork and under 2 hours from Galway, so getting here by self drive is very manageable. There’s plenty of parking and having your own transport does allow for some exploring under your own steam. 

Train and Bus

Westport train station is only 35 minutes from the lodge and there’s a great train service to Dublin several times a day, there are also plenty of bus services that run to Westport daily from different parts of the country. Whatever way you get to westport on Arrival we can help arrange a taxi to take you to the lodge. 

Train and/or bus for Groups

Some groups organise a bus for their whole group to get to the lodge, either to take them from westport or their point of origin. 

We’re more than happy for this to happen but just one word of warning: 

We don’t have the capacity to transport 15+ people to the beach and as we sometimes have to run surf lessons a drive away other transport to the beach may have to be organised at the groups expense. 


Perfect shallow flat water lake with clean wind for Kiting and great for paddleboarding too
Great waves for learning to surf and perfect for wave kiting too
Around the headland are great sheltered spots for Paddleboarding and Coasteering
If you’ve still got any energy left then a hike up Croagh Patrick will cure that.
The lodge is just a few mins up the road.
