Being a Frank McCourt fan, couldn't resist this tour. Noel Curtin (the guide) was punctual, but relaxed and informative. We spent a great afternoon tracing some of the episodes and places in the novel and the experience made F M even more real and likeable....More

Angela's Ashes was one of the primary reasons for our visit to Limerick and Noel Curtin did a fantastic job of bringing our group from one location to another while adding anecdotes that aren't included in the book. Highly recommended.

Noel is from the area, knows people who know all of the characters from the book, and also knows a lot about the history of this section of Limerick. A genuinely nice person, and a great guide.
