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.
Events at the Lodge
Booking your group at the lodge
Our two day event at the lodge is our most popular offering and you can read more about it here (link to new lodge event page). But you can also talk to us about putting together a trip for a shorter or longer amount of time, or pitch a totally wild idea to us. We’re all ears.
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.

Stand Up Paddleboarding Events
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!”Nathaniel SpohnEMEA Director at Fivetran
“‘My team and I did the DunLaoghaire harbour adventure, was absolutely awesome.Stephen HearyWhatsApp Legal
Great craic with a fantastic bunch of lads.’”
““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!””Emil LownanderAccount Executive, Google
“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.”Daniel Whitaker CaptainAccenture Surf Club
““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”Alessandro Raponi,Account Executive, Salesforce
