The Glitz at Irish Acres In Nonesuch KY

I think I love the address as Nonesuch KY as much as I love the destination at Irish Acres. Who would imagine that such a fancy place for lunch would exist like The Glitz?

For years, I have been taking unsuspecting guests and clients with me to surprise them with this restaurant way out in the country.

When you arrive, it looks just like an old brick two story 1936 elementary school. After you park and walk to the double doors in front you still have no idea what is in store. I love the look on a new guest's face when they step inside Irish Acres! It's like you have transported to fantasyland!

The Glitz at Irish Acres In Nonesuch KYThis time I took my executive assistant, Jane as a Christmas treat that I plan to be a tradition from now on. She was just amazed at all the antiques, the fragrance in the air, the jewelry and the fabulous food of The Glitz.

The sisters Jane DeLauter and Emilie McCauley always make everyone feel welcome. They along with their Dad, Arch Hannigan, have created this 32,000 square foot palace of antiques (since 1984) to be a delight for all that enter the front doors. Two whole floors with 50 themed rooms of over-the-top decor.

It's not unusual to see a tour bus parked in the lot of Irish Acres and the dining room filled with Red Hat ladies! That happened one time when I was there. Now that was a sight!

It's hard to say what I like best about Irish Acres but one of my favorite places to eat is The Glitz. It's a lavish gourmet Southern luncheon featuring some of the old family recipes.

Only the finest of ingredients are used to create the award winning three course menu that changes every two weeks. You really must have the signature Nonesuch Kiss for desert!

After lunch, you could spend hours combing through the 50 rooms to see American and European furniture, glassware, china, dolls, jewelry, rugs, crystal, silver,decorative accessories, etc. Each room more magnificent than the next!

I could go on and on but you really should go see The Glitz at Irish Acres In Nonesuch KYIrish Acres for yourself.

They are open until Dec. 31 and then will reopen on St Patrick's Day.

Open Tues - Sat. 10AM - 5PM.

Reservations at The Glitz are recommended.

No free lunch? You did the family proud either way.

Sounds like a wonderful place... The McMenamin Brothers  purchased several historical locations in Oregon... I've gone to a couple... A train station in Roseburg, and The Kennedy School, in Portland. Lit the Glitz, unusual, with a lot of character...

Lizette, the ambience of this place as you described it sounds simply awesome. Looking at all the furniture after the meal must make you feel like you are in a museum setting.

Sounds wonderful!   I'll have to drag Dan down there.  He owes me a day...

Is it near a fishing hole?   We could combine the trip.
