Each year, the Camino Society of Ireland hosts a number of information days around the country. I have been to the last two information days in Dublin and found them very helpful. I would encourage anyone who is planning on walking in the near future to go along and ask questions. There is great advice given about the many routes, how to pack, and how to get there.
You can also purchase a credencial and Brierley’s guide while there, or if you like, become a member of the Camino Society.
Below are their information days:
Dublin 27th February 2016 St James Church Hall. James St . 12pm – 3pm
