St James's Gate - Guinness

The Camino de Santiago and Guinness?



Written by Marine

We already knew that Waterford in Ireland is a part of the Camino de Santiago. But did you know that going to Guinness Storehouse it’s also a part of the Camino de Santiago?

You get your first Camino stamps on Celtics Camino, like the Waterford. And once you complete that go to Dublin at the Camino Society to have it validated.

Once you’re in Dublin to validate your stamp, don’t miss the St James’s Gate, adjacent to the Guinness brewery door!

History of St James’s Gate
