buck & hound
Buck & Hound is a creative and hard-working PR, social, design and events consultancy based in Dublin.
We are dedicated to championing businesses through impactful tactics and enthusiastic service that rivals the big PR’s.
We only work with those that inspire us believing that without passion, nothing truly ground-breaking can be accomplished.
We collaborate with our clients and trusted partners to create energetic, strategic and engaging campaigns that drive measurable results.
what we do
We know and love the media and content creators with influence. We understand how to package and tailor a story correctly ensuring that it is as compelling as possible. The way we plan, implement, report and measure success is specific to the needs of our clients. There is no cookie-cutter approach here.
Community management is a natural extension of public relations. We are always on, always listening and love to spin a good yarn. We understand the context of your business and how to pitch it to different audiences creating engagement and dialogue that builds relevancy and trust.
First impressions are everything. A strong brand teamed with a great offering is a recipe for success. Let us craft your story before we even start to shout about it ensuring ease of brand recognition and a unified presence from the outset.
Whether it’s virtual or in person, the single greatest way to build awareness and grow relationships on behalf of a brand is to allow those with a voice to experience it for themselves. Events envelop and include. They create loyalty and excitement. Here at Buck & Hound, we bring brands to the right guests with the right tone at the right time, every time.
While knowledge is still power, we have entered the Age of Curation where real influence now comes from the ability to answer a basic human need – how do I do better?
To sort through an abundance of information and communicate it in a way that adds value allows the free market of human choice to adapt and thrive. The rise of the influencer isn’t shallow or insignificant, it is vital to every business. Understanding that, we work closely with Ireland’s most authentic influencers creating meaningful brand touchpoints.
what they say
When you work with an agency or a consultant there has to be a feeling of trust and confidence that they are working for your interests and to deliver a best in class piece of work – always going the extra mile. That’s been my experience of dealing with MD, Claire for the last 5 years!

When I took on the opportunity to present a show on a figure as iconic as David Bowie I needed a PR company I could rely on to understand the nuances of representing an event of this nature. No drama, expectation management and an ability to implement a clear and concise strategy without any fluff and a strict control on budgets. With Claire and the Buck & Hound team it was exactly what I got. Thanks to these guys I can now sit at home and say that I successfully presented the greatest rock star of all time in the ebow gallery and digital agency.

The innovation and creativity brought to the table along with the collaborative approach to campaigns made Buck & Hound an essential part of our team. One meeting with Claire and her colleagues and you’re hooked – their expertise are second to none.

You might be wondering about the genesis of our name? The company was founded in 2016 by PR consultant, Claire Buckley. She found herself freelancing part time, mostly working from her home office with her trusty pooch, Stella, by her side.
Over the course of a few short months her client base had built to a point where she needed to expand rapidly and so Buck & Hound was born – a homage to the humble beginnings of what is sure to continue to be an exciting adventure.
Dublin born, Claire has been in the industry for 15 years having worked across every sector. Together with a dynamic team who share her love of fashion, technology, food and culture the company has gone from strength to strength.
The ethos of the business is simple: To create a nurturing and exciting environment that produces work for incredible client that we can all be proud of.
