Hi, I sent off for and received by pilgrims passport super quick thanks to the Irish Society of the Friends of St. James. However I might be mistaken but I expected more from it! It's a small booklet with spaces for stamps and that's it - no maps, guidance... Is this correct?

Yes - That's it. Remember what you are paying to the Irish Society of the Friends of St. James for your Pilgrim Passport is more of a donation to enable them to keep doing what they do.

If you are after a guide go to the CSJ bookshop http://www.csj.org.uk/acatalog/index.htm and I would get:
The Camino Francés, 2007 William Bisset. CSJ, London, 2006. 76 + 20 pp. (Pilgrim Guides to Spain #1) £6.00 and
A Pilgrim's Guide to the Camino Francés John Brierley. Camino Guides, Findhorn, 2006. 317 pp. £16.99

Buen Camino

Also, when you start your camino, they will give you a list of Albergues, and something that is not quite a map, but shows the elevation changes and distances between villages/towns/cities. You don't need a 'map' because the trails are very well marked, you only need to know distances. And like someone just said, there are plenty of guidebooks you can buy online that are helpful.

I did my first week without a guidebook and was fine. After that point, someone by chance gave one to me, but I certainly didn't *need* it

Your pilgrim passport is just that, a passport, and isn't intended to be a guide, though some of them have a sketch of the whole camino on the back.

buen camino!
