What is best, pick up the Credential before you leave or on the Camino?

The question was:

Looking for peoples’ advice on the matter of the credencial. We start our Camino in Ponferrada next weekend, but won’t arrive there till about 10pm (we have a hotel booked for that night), so the main albergue will surely be closed by then. We plan to start walking the following morning.

What I’m wondering is whether to try to get a credencial here in Dublin before we leave (we may be able to get a last minute one), or to go to the main albergue in Ponferrada early the next morning to get one? We don’t want to waste time, but I guess it could be done quite quickly.
