The Hardy Bucks cottage: Filming Location

This is the cottage where Buzz McDonnell and Eddie Durkan live in the Irish comedy series Hardy Bucks.

It is situated in Culmore, Mayo.

Throughout most of the show, Buzz and Eddie live in this small house outside of Swinford. However, in the TV series, Swinford is known as Castletown.

The cottage is owned by Buzz's aunt.

This is the spot where the group attempts to set up an Internet cafe. It is also the place where Buzz's convict cousin holds them hostage.

Eddie lives here up until the start of Season 4, when he decides to move out and get an apartment with his girlfriend Ciara.

Sadly, the property was badly damaged by a fire in August 2022.

Episode 4, Season 1 - A Castletown Christmas

Eddie Durkan

Eddie instructs Buzz to run at him with a Christmas tree so that he can show the cameramen his "moves."

When French Toast questions whether an attacker wielding a tree is a likely scenario, Eddie tells him that "you never know what the Christmas period will bring at you."

Episode 4, Season 1 - A Castletown Christmas


The lads attempt to have the perfect Christmas by exchanging gifts and drinking cans. However, they soon find out that the electricity is gone and that their lager is frozen solid.


Episode 2, Season 2 - Broadband


In this scene, crowds of young men queue up outside to use the Internet.

This was after Eddie had convinced Salmon to "invest" his money in the "business" by buying more computers for the cottage.

The final turn-off is opposite a bungalow. Note that this Google Street View image was taken over ten years ago, in March 2009.

As a result, the location might look slightly different today.

"I'm not great at all, man."

Episode 1, Season 1 - The Shkyline


Buzz tries out a new routine after reading an article on how to hang upside down. Unfortunately, he fails to read the part about how to release himself.



Judging by several TikTok videos, the property became disused and overgrown. The screenshot above is from a video that was recorded in July 2021.


The inside

Recent TikTok videos show that the inside of the house wasn't in great shape before the fire.

Pieces of insulation were hanging from the living room ceiling. Broken furniture and plasterboard were also scattered throughout the rooms of the house.



In August 2022, the house was badly damaged by a fire, which is believed to have been started by vandals.

Judging by photographs on social media, it seems as though the living room area and the roof were completely destroyed.
