The society is made up of mainly Irish pilgrims who have either made the pilgrimage to the tomb of Saint James in Santiago or have an interest in it. We are also attempting to actively encourage interest in and use of the many ancient pathways and pilgrim routes within Ireland itself. Saint Patrick’s Road to the mountains of Croagh Patrick in the west of Ireland and Saint Kevin’s Way in Glendalough, County Wicklow are two such routes.

This site offers a source of practical, pictorial and historical information on the ancient pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

There is also more information on the Irish Society of Friends of Saint James; it’s history, activities and how to get in touch/join in.

The gallery gives the opportunity for members to post up articles, photographs, advice and research for all to see.

There is also an online newsletter to help keep up to date with what’s on in terms of talks, walks or social gatherings of the society. We hope that our website will help you along your "road" and if you wish to contribute please do. You can get in touch by email or visit the Contact Us section for our full contact details.
