Welcome to the BigStyle Atlantic Lodge, our favourite place to be in the world! Bigstyle is an adventure watersports company founded in 2013, and is now best known for our Atlantic Lodge in Co Mayo. From here we host regular weekend retreats offering watersports and outdoor adventure, delicious veggie food, yoga, gigs, campfires and all sorts of craic. All set on the spectacular views of the Wild Atlantic Way. Coming to work with us will see you in a variety of tasks - housekeeping, kitchen hand, customer relations. You will also get the opportunity to work with us on our famous Big Slice nights making sourdough pizza in our purpose built wood fired pizza oven. In your down time you will have access to surf equipment and are within easy reach of some of Ireland’s finest surf and kitesurfing spots. If watersports aren’t your thing we have lots of hikes, walks and chill out spots to take advantage of.
The company was built through our love of the outdoors and our want to find an alternative living lifestyle to escape from city life. As a volunteer you will become part of the team and will be part of helping us build a dream that we have turned into reality. If you are keen to experience the outdoors and the West of Ireland then coming to stay with us is an easy choice. With Covid restrictions we are currently only accepting volunteers who are currently in Ireland.
My time with Big Style has been amazing and I am so grateful for this beautiful experience.
Killadoon is quiet and georgeus and the lodge is unique. Everything is wonderful around there but the best of all are the people that work in it.
If you are looking for a nice spot with the best people, Big Style is the place.
Thank you for the funny moments, for all that kidness and for making me feel at home.

I had an amazing time with Big Style - the team were all very welcoming and lots of fun to work with, and the lodge itself was amazing! Work rarely felt like work, and there was plenty of time to improve my surfing or pursue other interests. The region itself is stunning, and with Killadoon as a base it is very easy to explore the surrounding area through hiking or biking.
I'd definitely recommend volunteering here to anyone!
