The wonderful thing about the Shamrock Arms is that it is the perfect base from which to explore many places of interest and scenic beauty in the Mpumalanga Province. All of the provinces principal tourist attractions are within easy reach of the Shamrock Arms.

                  Enchanting lodge with very hospitable staff. The area has an interesting history. Would unreservedly recommend the Shamrock Arms for your accommodation.

                  01 September 2014

                  Spent a wonderful weekend here with fantastic food, wine and good company. Very comfortable rooms and friendly people. Thanks so much for a great stay - will definitely be back!

                  02 June 2014

                  08 January 2013

                  We spent our last night of our honeymoon at the Shamrock Arms Guest Lodge. What a wonderful choice. Amazing hosts. Lovely rooms and Waterval Bowen is worth a visit. I look forward to going back there sometime. Many thanks for going out of your way to make our stay special.

                  01 September 2012

                  It was our coldest day of all our stay in South Africa. But we got a very warm welcome, the rooms and even our beds were heated and we felt very welcome. When we had an emergency, there was no question, that we were driven to the next hospital (min. one hour drive) and our host stayed with us, until everything was set. Never in our life, we knew someone who felt so responsible for the wellbeeing of his guests. Thank you!
