Shamrock Arms Guest Lodge
Enjoy the warm embrace of the Shamrock Arms Guest Lodge, which offers good value, tranquil surroundings and wholesome food.
Shamrock Arms was a finalist in the lodge category of the 2010 South African Tourism Welcome Awards, which means that it’s considered to be of the cream of the crop in the tourism industry – always hospitable, always professional and always passionate about delivering service excellence.
You’ll find the lodge in the picturesque and historic village of Waterval Boven in Mpumalanga Province. It is authentically Victorian and comfortably modern and traces its history back to 1894.
Because the guest lodge is only a 2-and-half hour drive from Johannesburg it’s an ideal stopover for the business and leisure traveller on route to the Kruger National Park, Swaziland or Mozambique.
Shamrock Arms is also the perfect base from which to explore many places of interest and scenic beauty in Mpumalanga. Your host Terry, an accredited and registered tourist guide, can offer guidance on any tourist related matters.
On offer are superbly furnished rooms with their own entrances and an en-suite bath or shower, DSTV with decoder, air-conditioning (hot & cold), electric blanket (optional in winter), courtesy bar, tea / coffee facility, and an electronic safe. King, Queen or Twin beds are available, as is WIFi at no charge.
A wholesome home-cooked meal for dinner is available on request; unwind in our cosy pub with a good selection of South African wines.
A sincere and friendly welcome awaits you at the Shamrock Arms.

Great people looking after you. Terry and Jaco treat you as their friend and make you feel very welcome. Atmosphere and ambience are amazing. Would highly recommend a stay there. Have the omelette for breakfast.
