Newcastle Irish Pub & Accommodation

Welcome to Northern Star Hotel Hamilton -

The Northern Star Hamilton Hotel is owned by the Ramplin family. It has grown from a small one bar hotel to a hotel that prides itself on offering an up-to-date, clean and respectable environment catering for the latest gaming machines, the best entertainment of a culturally diverse range, great friendly bars with a top brasserie/bistro dining.

In 1996, the hotel started to be known as an Irish Pub with a large number of the local Irish community drinking Guinness at the venue. Soon after the hotel earned the reputation as an Irish Hotel by Guinness recognising the venue being in the top 150 Irish hotels in Australia for Guinness. With this recognition and the venue having some of the best and most long running St Patrick’s Day’s in Newcastle, the Irish flavour of the pub was enhanced by a renovation in 2003 into a traditional Irish Pub.

We consistently capture the authentic Irish atmosphere with great food & James Squire pub sessions
