Dun Laoghaire Harbour

Welcome to BigStyle SUP School and Rental

Stand up Paddleboarding is the best possible way to explore Dublin’s beautiful coastline, not to mention a fantastic way to get fit.

Whether you’re a seasoned water–dweller or a landlubber taking your first tentative steps we’re delighted to be here to help you get your sea legs.

Why not come on down and learn something new!



DunLaoghaire harbour is located just over 10km from Dubin’s city centre and its 200 acres of water is steeped in over 200 years of history. It’s the perfect place to learn to Stand up Paddle as it’s sheltered from almost every wind direction and offers loads of space to make all kinds of mistakes.

We’re located at the slipway to the Coal Harbour – the oldest part of DunLaoghaire’s historic port. It also happens to be the most sheltered part of the whole harbour and the perfect place to take your first spin on a SUP.

We’ll make sure to match your progression, so if you’re taking to it like a duck to water we’ll set off to explore, or if you’re a bit unsure we’ll take our time and cruise around a small area.

Also if you know what you’re doing come on down and rent a board off us and go on an adventure.



We have some great brand new equipment for 2018, and everyone who comes down gets a wetsuit, a buoyancy aid, a paddle and a SUP. So all you have to bring is a towel and your sense of adventure.


If you have a work outing to organise, a stag or hen party that needs a bit of bejaysus or even just a load of mates looking for a day out – give us a call or an email and we’ll put together a tailor made package.

Searching Availability…


  • One or two quick things you should know before you come down for your lesson or rental
  • Everything is included in the price – board, paddle, wetsuit, buoyancy aid and even wetsuit booties if you need them – so all you have to bring is shorts and a towel
  • Try and be there at least 10 minutes before the lesson kicks off
  • There’s plenty of parking beside the slip way we operate from but it costs €2 per hour
  • Our operation is mobile in the harbor (for the moment!) so there are no changing rooms down there. So it’s best to come wearing your swim suit or swimming shorts.
  • When you arrive you’ll see a trailer with flags and a large blue van… and everything says BigStyle in big letters, so it’s hard to miss.
