Frank McCourt wrote brilliantly of the hardships endured by his family during their time in Limerick. Aptly housed in Frank’s former school, the collection has been brought together with incredible dedication by its devoted curator, who has poured so much of her own time &...More

Museum includes lots of things from McCourt's life and lots of photos and books (different translations). So much stuff all over the place, that it just looked messy really. But you surely will get lots of information and most of the things will be explained...More

Angela's Ashes is a favorite book of mine, so I was interested in coming to this museum, just to be in the author's neighborhood and have a glimpse into Frank's life. The entry fee is worth supporting the upkeep of the museum and items assembled...More
