Ray and Rita (R & R) purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Banba House called to me. Has very best ease of access available to Galway city in only a few minutes away and no parking problems and no drink/drive issues with buses and trains running every hour, and 'till 2.30 am at weekends. Athenry is a very beautiful historic town with attractive narrow streets and magnificent fully restored castle. Train to Dublin ( 2 hrs)and Limerick just two minutes walk to the platform. & 7 Seven golf courses within 20 miles and very good local town course.Its a wonderful laid back place to chill out and let your hair down..

Long and short term rentals. An artists \ writers musicians winter retreat. Art studio available by arrangement.

Large private exclusive and very safe residentuial area.

Its so handy to Galway and with the train to Dublin and Shannon just two minutes walk away, why rent a car until you get here, the car hire companies will collect you or deliver if you ask. You cant hear the train, but its out there, first class service is available on most trains.

Family Graduation Trip

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Athenry at the Banba House. Fabulous location within walking distance of grocery, restaurants and pubs. Whisper quiet train took us quickly into Galway whenever we wanted more excitement. J.Glynn's Pub in Athenry was one of our favorite pubs with it's cozy fire and pleasant owner.
It was so nice to arrive to a warm welcome and lovely meal. Ray was warm, helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We even caught his live, musical performance at one of the famous Galway pubs.
We hope to be able to return soon.

Banba House, we will always remember our time at this wonderful location in Galway Ireland. The owner had a complementary lunch prepared for us on arrival after our long trip and it just made us feel so welcome. We took the train from Dublin and walked 150 yards to the house and used the train to go into the city centre, a ten minute trip. great location , great people, very confortable and peaceful pleasent situation. We will be back.. Rodger, Marie Mahoney and family.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of seven rented Banba House last summer and we had a fantastic time! I’m actually on this site now to rebook it for this year and decided to write a recommendation that is long overdue.

To begin with the location is fabulous. Although you wouldn’t know it because it’s so quiet, it’s literally right across the street from the train station with trains that take you to Galway in about 10 minutes, Dublin in about 2 hours, or any charming town along the way if you’re interested in touring more of the country on day trips. Banba House is also just a couple minutes walk to the center of historic Athenry with pubs and shopping. Athenry even has its own castle that is open for tourists!

The home itself is wonderful. The house has high ceilings, gorgeous bay windows, gleaming wooden floors in the dining room, plush warm carpeting throughout the rest of the house, and beautiful fireplaces. The rooms are bright and spacious. There are 2 1/2 baths, all very large and modern. The gourmet kitchen is incredible - I became a better cook just by standing in it! The bedrooms are all very big and comfortable, each with its own sink and vanity.

The house was absolutely perfect for our large group. We saved a huge amount of money by not staying in a hotel and eating out for every meal. In addition, we could be together when we wanted but there was enough space that everyone could have privacy, if desired. One rainy day we all stayed in, played cards by the fireplace, watched movies, and made a wonderful dinner - very cozy! And a nice break to recharge from being a tourist!

The owner, Ray, is a charming man who made us feel very welcome. He left us the house “Bible,” which included directions to popular tourist destinations, train schedules, lists of stores for shopping, instructions for the house, etc. He even loaned us Irish cell phones for our stay! One perk that I’ll always remember is a meal ready and waiting for us when we arrived – talk about Irish hospitality! This was something very much appreciated after a long international flight. Ray was not on site but always just a phone call away if we needed anything or if we had questions.

One recommendation I have is to reserve this property early. There are so many large events happening in the Galway area..sailboat and horse races; music, art and food festivals; etc that Banba House tends to be booked very much in advance.

Have a wonderful stay at Banba House - a beautiful "home away from home!"

Banba House is just a couple of minutes away from Athenry Castle. We were four couples in Galway for an extended stay. the house was perfect, warm comfortable and its of space to roam around and have a quiet moment when required.
The owner put up an amazing reception for us and had fresh hot food on arrival to help us settle after out long journey. We had hired car but only used it a few times as we took the train which is only a couple of minutes away to Galway and Dublin and limerick.

We were totally impressed with this property. We loved the location and the owner was very helpful throughtout our stay. We had a party of 10 and the house worked out perfectly. There was privacy, yet room to socialize also. It was a great location going into Galway the train was 8min ride but the town of Athreny was wonderful to explore also.
