Our guide was very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed learning more about Frank McCourt and was neat to see all of the history behind his life.

The museum was interesting to me, since I had read the book long ago, actually in 1996 in Ireland. I got the most out of the pictures of Frank and the family. Also appreciated knowing what happened to them all .

Our guide was great, certainly knew the history. Apartment nearby should have no entry as I accidently walked in the door, certainly surprised the occupant. Lots of photo's and articles to look at.

My son and I visited the Museum recently on our first trip to Ireland and we were delighted to spend a couple of hours browsing through the memorabilia and meeting the hosts who were very knowledgable and helpful. My son was reading Angelas Ashes at the time and I had read it years ago, so we were right in the... More

I am a huge Frank McCourt fan, so perhaps I am a little biased...but I really enjoyed my time at the old Lereamy school house (where Frank attended school as a boy) which is now the Frank McCourt Museum. The tour guide was very passionate and was full of information. The museum has old pictures of Frank and of the... More

A very interesting visit, situated in the school which Frank attended, with typical seating and classroom layout. Also loads of memorabilia of Frank himself. Well worth visiting

My visit to Limerick was motivated with one intention in mind - to visit the Frank McCourt museum and the visit was worth it in every way! It is really such a bonus that the old school building that McCourt attended when he was growing up in the lanes, is now used as the venue for this important part of... More

Good guide, obviously this museum does offer an awesome experience, if you have read "angela's ashes", but even for people who didn't read the book, the museum is still very interesting. It really does a good job, showing how poor families lived back on the day in Limerick.

Having read the book and seen the film 'Angela's ashes' by Frank McCourt - the visit to the museum made the experience even more vivid. Very nice display of things and pictures of Franks childhood in Limerick. Thank's to Una Heaton who gave a very detailed and lively description of all the things collected for the museum. Many regards from... More
