NEW The Celtic Camino: from Ireland to Santiago de Compostela

March 15, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email, the Camino experts, are now offering pilgrims the chance to experience the unique Celtic Camino, starting their Camino journey in Ireland and continuing to Santiago de Compostela from the lively city of A Coruña.

What is the Celtic Camino?

Traditionally, Camino pilgrims used to start their journey from their own homes and various Camino de Santiago routes developed over time.

The so called Camino Ingles, or English Camino, was the route preferred by British and Irish pilgrims on their way to Santiago. There are two starting points: Ferrol and A Coruña, in Galicia.

In order to receive their Compostela pilgrim certificate in Santiago de Compostela, walkers must complete at least the last 100kms of any Camino route.

While A Coruña is a traditional starting point, it is only 75kms away from Santiago, meaning pilgrims wouldn’t obtain their Compostela certificate in Santiago.

The Camino Society Ireland has announced a new Irish ‘Compostela’ that pilgrims can request in St James Church in Dublin after completing 25kms of a pilgrim trail in Ireland. This certificate can then be used to complete the journey from A Coruna to Santiago.

This is now known as the Celtic Camino., specialists on the Camino de Santiago, has now launched new self-guided tours on the Camino Ingles starting from A Coruña for those pilgrims looking to experience the Celtic Camino.
