The central area of the museum is a faithful re-creation of the former classroom of the 1930's ,with authentic desks and wall hangings. Visitors can imagine the young Frank and his friends sitting at these desks as the teacher 'beat the education into them'.

Two rooms have been turned into a museum by Una and are a re-creation of the McCourts home in Roden Lane. Visitors can see first hand the living conditions expierienced by the McCourts and the other familes who lived in the Lanes of Limerick.

The museum is open Mon-Friday from 11am to 4.30pm and from March we open at the weekends. Groups by appointment. Contact Una at +353 86 3735015

  • Went to visit this place today with the family. Lovely to see the old photos,school benches and the beds and coats used to cover the McCourt children. It's not a big place bot it's like stepping back in time and the man who took us around seemed genuinely interested in telling us the stories and showing us around.
  • Charming insight into the conditions in Limerick during difficult times. Operated privately the owner has a passion to keep these memories alive. A necessary stop for anyone who has read Angela's Ashes. The museum could use your support as it struggles to develop much as Frank must have struggled.
