More info about Irene
Pronounced ‘Eyereenee’, the suburb of Irene falls within the town of Centurion in the Gauteng Province of South Africa. A previous owner of the farm named the land after his daughter, the word Irene (or eiríni) meaning peace in Greek.
Archaeologists are familiar with Irene for the ancient artefacts discovered here and historians know it for the 40 concentration camps laid down during the South African War but today Irene is better known for the dairy farm that has been in existence since 1895 and a regular stop for anyone travelling between Centurion, Midrand and Pretoria.
Many of the properties are smallholdings and large plots and the area is surrounded by a country club, secure estates and farmland. Two main highway are nearby.
Irene has that country feeling and leaves visitors to savour the intoxicating Highveld air.
