The unique nature of BigStyle SUP Dublin lies in their mobility, affordability and personality. Founded by Kris Goodbody, BigStyle has been involved in the Irish watersports business for over ten years, offering a SUP school in Dublin at Dun Laoghaire Harbour and the Atlantic Lodge in Co. Mayo. They also run evening paddles on the Liffey River and to Dalkey Island via Coliemore Harbour.

Dun Laoghaire Harbour is located just over 10km from Dubin’s city centre and has 200 acres of water. 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.
BigStyle SUP school is located at the slipway to the Coal Harbour – the oldest part of Dun Laoghaire’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.

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

If you know what you’re doing, come on down and rent a board and go on an adventure.
They have some great new equipment, 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. The BigStyle operation is mobile in the harbour (for the moment) so there are no changing rooms. So it’s best to come wearing your swim suit. When you arrive you’ll see a trailer with flags and a large blue van.

From mid-April to the start of November BigStyle SUP is open every weekday evening (except for Monday) and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
Weekday evenings (Tue to Fri): 5.30pm to 7pm / 7.30pm to 9pm
Weekends: 10.30am to 12pm / 12.30pm to 2pm / 2.30pm to 4pm / 4.30pm to 6pm

Evening Liffey River Paddles are also available. And evening paddles to Dalkey Island are available via Coliemore Harbour.
