Lockers in Irun

Time of past OR future Camino
Camino del Norte
Hello, I am starting in 4 days, will be flying to San Sebastián but I plan to start in France, in Bayonne.
I want to have some of my luggage carried so I am using Correos service but as it starts in Irún, I need to keep my things somewhere while I walk the first two stages from France.
I thought there would be lockers in the train stations/airport but I see no notice about them.
I read in some blog that there is Pensión Bowling which has public lockers or something similar. I was also thinking about going to the local post office but I don't know if they can keep my luggage. Also, sending it away with Pack Mochila seems tricky, as it would have to wait for me in the albergue.
Any ideas??

Two suggestions.

One that I know from personal experience and the other I googled "storage lockers san Sebastián".

https://www.sansebastianlockers.com/ came up when I googled. They say that they are at the bus station in San Sebastian and connected to the train station.

The other option is the Post Office. I wanted to do something similar in Pamplona and so I went to the central post office and asked to leave a bag. Initially they refused but I asked what was the difference between me leaving a bag there to pick up later and posting one there to pick up later.

They agreed that if I posted it there that they would hold it until I picked it up and so I wrapped it, addressed it, paid for the postage and posted it to myself at the same post office.

So, two ways to leave luggage for later pick up.

Hey, that's an idea haha!
I also found those lockers in San Sebastián, but they are like 22 I'm from the airport. The post office in Irún, on the other hand, is a 20 min walk.
I may use one of your ideas, but I think I am previously contacting muy Albergue in Irún to ask them the favour as Vacajoe suggested.
Thanks a lot to you both!

If you do use the Post Office idea then be aware that Pilgrims in Spain get special, cheaper postage rates and so be sure to tell them that you are a Pilgrim.

The Post Office staff were also very helpful and provided me with wrapping paper and sellotape.
