What We Do

Public Relations

We love the media and our contacts are strong. 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. 


The single greatest way to build awareness and grow relationships on behalf of a brand is to allow customers and the media 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 in the right place at the right time, every time. 

Social Media

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. 

Graphic Design

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.

Media Training

Ensuring complete preparation and working with both interviewer and interviewee we aim to bring clients to a point where, without being evasive, every question asked is an opportunity to share their message. 

Copy Writing

We don’t stop at media. Let us shape the way you communicate your brand and its offerings across all of your content from websites and powerpoints to brochures and sales materials. Whatever your tone of voice, we know how to emulate it.

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 almost ten years having worked across every sector. She loves fashion, technology, food and culture but her main passion is people.

She’s a PR lifer – this is her vocation.

What They Say

Trust and confidence

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!

Best in the business

Claire is hands down the best in the business. She somehow gives all of her clients all of her attention and there isn’t a PR challenge she can't tackle or overcome. Highly recommended.

Creative Thinking

Buck & Hound has a deep understanding of how we, as a business, operate. They play to our strengths and negotiate our challenges supporting us as we build on a diverse brand offering through creative thinking, excellent organisational skills and strong media relationships. I continue to recommend them to my peers. Top class.

David Bowie Exhibition

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.
