A must see for fans of the book visiting Limerick. Knowledgeable and attentive tour guide. Lots of interesting photographs and props. It's also great value at 4 euro per person.

Love the small museum. Only £3 entry. Was great to see the school room and desks he sat at. Amazing to see the small bowl Angela actually carved herself which held, at one point, her ashes.

We visited this museum when it opened and absolutely loved it! The guide was a lovely man who brought the history of the time of Frank McCourt's childhood come to life! He was very informative about McCourt, of course, but also well-informed about Ireland's political...More

I had read the Frank McCourt book 'Tis' and was interested in seeing something in Limerick 'city'. Let's face it - there isn't a lot to the place - more like a large town. Lots of beggars in the streets, slipshod service in most places...More
