What we do

For the 11 years BigStyle has been in business our core focus has been creating unique experiences for our clients. We can tweak our Atlantic Lodge offering to make it suit your dream event or put together really exciting Stand Up Paddleboarding trips to the harbours, rivers and islands around Dublin.  

BigStyle’s origins are in running the wildest and most exciting international surf and kitesurfing trips to Tanzania and Sri Lanka where we’ve learned to be creative, malleable and, most importantly, what it takes to make a trip genuinely special. 

So if you’re a business looking for something amazing for your team, an activity provider looking for a location to run a retreat for your clients, or just a group of family or friends looking to put an event together… you’ve found the right place.

Hiring the Lodge as an event space/collaborating with us

Plenty of businesses have run their own events in the lodge, for these we slide into the background – providing all the accommodation and services while you run the event. Also if we fit well together as businesses we’d be really interested in talking about collaborating on creating a trip. If you’re interested don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Testimonials

We’ve had plenty of experience working with companies in the past including the following: 

Working with the BigStyle guys has helped us to develop unique, delightful and engaging events for the Movember community. The guys hosted our group in their beautifully crafted, rustic Atlantic lodge for an incredible adventure weekend which included light-hearted group yoga in the morning lead by the ever limber Pete! followed later by a refreshing surf at the nearby break. Throughout the weekend we were treated to fresh healthy, wholesome food prepared on site and the most stunning west of Ireland scenery.”

Jack O'ConnorHead of Movember Ireland

When our team crushed our quarterly target we chose an adventure weekend at BigStyle to celebrate. We could not have been more delighted with our experience. The staff makes you feel like family, the food is deliciously rejuvenating, the atmosphere is inspirational, and the activities brought us closer together. We will be back!

“The BigStyle team are excellent at what they do, exceptionally easy to work with and very professional. They host the best events with the best vibes!”

As a group we had a great time all weekend.

The facilities provided really added to our time there. The opportunity to bathe in a wood-fired hot tub and chill by the observation deck and bonfire area at your hostel base was the perfect way to flake out after a couple of hours surfing the local waves! These nice-to-have features were things that not many of our group had fully anticipated beforehand and I would go back for in a heartbeat just to avail of these.

Location wise being in the middle of the countryside and away from the hustle & bustle of any town or city greatly added to the experience we had as a group. The local pub P.Dan’s also provided excellent service both during the day and at night.

As hosts, you were very accommodating and friendly and you dealt with everything very competently and without any fuss particularly with some last minute requests that we had enquired about.

Overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and we will definitely be going back again in the near future.

“Let’s just start from saying it was the best adventure I have had here in Ireland in the past 5 years. We were a group of 10 and we headed with the BigStyle team to County Mayo and we have done it all, from coasteering to SUP, from climbing Croagh Patrick to Kite Surfing. If you feel like you need a break from the routine of the corporate life, BigStyle is the right choice for you

So grateful to have just participated in a retreat weekend at Big Style and wow, we were so well taken care of! The location is stunning, the food was amazing, both delicious and so filling (clearly made with extra care!) and the activities were fantastic. It was so nice to be so well looked after for an entire weekend, cannot recommend it enough! If a full weekend isn't in the cards for you, the Big Dipper (Sauna, plunge pool and hot tub with spectacular views) is well worth a visit!

Hidden gem in Killadoon. Lovely small hotel, good breakfast, they have yoga and surf lessons, you can also use the hot tub and sauna that have spectacular views, recommend to book it in the sunset. Great place to relax and the staff is lovely. 10/10 experience.

There's something for everyone here. I bought the weekend escape as a gift for my sisters 30th and we brought our Dad down too (in his 60's) and he had a great time - even if he didn't manage to stand up on the surf board. Food is hearty and filling, exactly what you need after a day of activities. Every single one of the staff are so lovely and helpful, always around if you need something. Can't wait to come back.

Myself and two friends headed to the Big Style for the weekend of the August bank holiday. This is a complete hidden gem of Ireland. From beginning to end the whole experience is fantastic. The quality and taste to the food served all weekend is exceptional, with plenty of it also! The atmosphere in the lodge is gorgeous. The activities throughout the weekend are great between the daily surf, yoga and hike. This can be as much as a retreat as you like i.e. it can be a total switch off from reality or it can be a fun party vibe if that is what you are after. The value for money is brilliant and I dont think you will get a break like it anywhere else in Ireland. Would highly recommend

I had a wonderful time at the lodge as a solo traveler doing the weekend escape package! It was fantastic value for money. The rooms are basic enough but you spend barely any time there. Common areas both indoor and outdoor are gorgeous. The spa area outside is such a treat with amazing views. The food was absolutely incredible, staff were amazing! Highly recommend
