Credencial in Irun


New Member
I intend walking the Camino del Norte in May and would like to collect a credencial in Irun if possible. Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain a credencial in Irun and if so, where?

Hi Lillian,
Thanks very much for the information.
I have obtained a lot of information from the great Eroski site although the online translation will keep me guessing a bit along the way.

May the road sise up to meet you. etc

If it's the Norte, it is probably Rise with a capital R if you look at Lillian's lovely photos of the route. :D

Here are some of the people you may find in the albergue in Irun who will provide you with your credential. Of the ones in the pictures only one spoke any English but all were friendly, kind and helpful!

Thank you very much for the question and answer. I was needing the same information. I start the northern route 19 June, Irun to Finisterre!

Keep a smile,

Hi Simeon,

I'll probably be a day behind you as I arrive in Irun on the 19th May and will start walking on the 20th

Thanks everyone for the replies and the useful information.

Hello Everyone,
Simeon - have you gotten back yet??

You gave me some good tips last year for the Frances (which I completed late October before heading onto to Finisterre - fantastic the whole way!), then went on to do Porto to Santiago spring 2013 (also marvellous!)

Looking to start the Norte/Primitivo early October - Any tips????

Blessings to all,

Buen Camino!

Good post... as Glenman said before me... does anyone have the address of the albergue in Irun?

Calle Lucas de Berroa, 18

You can get lots of information about the albergues, including what kind of facilities they have, when they open, size, etc, at or at the Eroski site at or at the Gronze site: They are all great resources and. Buen camino! Laurie
