Tell me about your facilities

Shamrock Chapel was opened in 2012.  A homestead on the farm had to be demolished, and all the building material that could be salvaged, including antique floor boards, skirtings and windows, were used to build our 120 seater chapel.  The chapel is located on the edge of the mountain with big windows opening up with a spectacular view on the orchards and a panoramic view over the Sundays River Valley.

In 2016 we opened Belle Vue (meaning beautiful view).  The venue can easily accommodate 120 guests in banquet style with enough room for a big dance floor.  We do not cater for weddings with a guest totalling more than 120 pax, as we want to guarantee a valuable experience.

We have an industrial sized catering kitchen where all catering are done.  Our bar is fully licensed.

A smaller hall connected to Belle Vue is used for starters and a lounging area before the reception starts.  Smaller groups of people for functions and weddings can be accommodated here.

The chapel and venue is situated in natural veld typical of the are with a few hidden ravines that makes spectacular photo opportunities for your special day.

Where are you located?

Shamrock Chapel & Belle Vue is located on a working citrus farm, Geluk, in the Sundays River Valley.  We are on the R336 between Kirkwood and Addo, and our road sign is clearly visible if your cross the Sundays River Valley.  Our chapel and venue is located on a hill with spectacular views overlooking the Sundays River Valley.  Ample accommodation is available within easy reach from our facilities.
