The Morning Star
- BAR & RESTAURANT -
EAT OUT AT THE MORNING STAR
In the heart of Belfast, nestled between bustling streets, lies The Morning Star—a beacon of tradition, resilience, and familial warmth. As a family-owned establishment, The Morning Star
stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of the McAlister family, a family with deep roots in both farming and the culinary arts, spanning five generations.
In order to appreciate the present, we must remember the past. In 1810 The Morning Star was originally a coaching stop for the Belfast to Dublin post, a place where weary travellers sought
refuge and sustenance. The name “Morning Star” whispers through time, a legacy bestowed upon the establishment by the men of the old mail coach depot, their first light of day in a city
still draped in slumber.
Through the gas lamps, the moon, and the stars, The Morning Star has woven a narrative that intertwines with the very fabric of Belfast. It narrowly weathered the storm of the Belfast Blitz in 1941, a resilient survivor amidst the levelled remnants of neighbouring buildings. The bricks and beams, witness to history, now stand as a testament to the enduring spirit of a city
and its people.
