  • Very nice Place! Little but full of things that were part or the Frank's live. The man inside expalins well many things about Limerick and Frank referring ti the book. I Remember him always with a smile on my face for his kindness. The cost is 4 euro.
  • Not a lot in it really. Small inside but building outside is lovely and worth a look just for itself.
  • My experience with the museum made my whole trip to Limerick a great experience. Not only was the dedication to this notable author perfect, but the people running it were phenomenal. They were so welcoming, funny, and long time locals of Limerick who had countless stories to share. It's also important to note - if you want to take the Angela's Ashes tour, the official one is through this museum. The Limerick tourist center offers a similar walking tour as well, but the one run by the museum is given by a man who knew Frank personally and is more thorough for your money if you are a McCourt fan! Thank you for the great experience!
  • If you've seen Angela's Ashes or read the books it's a must. They are very helpful and also provide walking tours.
  • My kids loved the classroom experience.
