I recently stayed at Banba House in Athenry with my family of 7 for 4 nights.We are Irish Americans and 2 South Africans on our first trip to the Mother Country. Everything was grand, as the Irish might say. Owner pride(Ray) is evident throughout. I've listed all the pros I can think of and a few cons about the house itself and the area as a vacation destination. Pros: -Ray- Just wonderful to deal with pre trip and a most effortless and gracious host. He met us at the train on our arrival and brought all our luggage back to the house so that we could continue on the train into Galway. -Ray prepared a wonderful chicken/salad/ bread and wine dinner for us on our departure night -A welcome bottle of wine or 2 upon arrival back home our first night. Ray has plenty of wine in the house if you prefer to pay-as- you go. We bought our wine at the market. -Loved all the whimsical pictures(painted by our host) and knick knacks throughtout -House was immaculate -Windows just sparkled -Kitchen stocked with all the amenities you need -Rooms were all spacious and sunny -Nice patio out back to sit in sun or just hang the laundry -Plenty of games and cards to pass the time(nice change from tv and computer obsessed) -Pristine location-no litter or graffiti anywhere. So pleasant. -Market right around corner to stock up on staples(wine and such) -Athenry train literally around the corner but you never hear it. Nice quaint train station. -Athenry town also literally a stones throw from the house. Nice town to wander about and take in local flavor -Plenty of hot water(thought we'd be spacing out showers but didn't have problems) -Cleaning supplies (dishwasher and sink) and TP already there(have rented many places in US where you need to buy yourself). -Nice landscaping about the property- well maintained -Galway was (as we were told) one stop up from Athenry (15mins or so) on a very nice, clean, quiet train through pleasant landscapes. -Galway is another wonderful Irish city full of culture, food,music and loads of shopping! with many photo ops everywhere you turn. Sunday afternoons the pubs were hopping!! -So many excursions leave right out of Galway and it is all very efficient and convenient. A short walk down from train and you are at the main hub of transportation(tour buses). -Wifi available and used by a few of us for music, work and uploading pictures -Very good meats available in Athenry at Michael Walsh's butcher shop -Tours from Galway to all the wonderul excursions in the West: Cliffs of Moher, the Abbey, etc were very very reasonable costs and easy to book last minute.(it was off season though). Cons: -Train can be expensive since need to book each way not round trip. This can add up since we were into Galway every day. But having said that, you are on vacation and public transport is expensive everywhere. -Train departures from Galway back to Athenry limited at night, so just plan ahead for it(we found with our group of 7 that a rented minivan back was way to go and cheaper than the train-but you need to book it at one of the tour companies ahead of time. We also took taxi back one night but was expensive and needed 2 of course). -We are not night owls and found out that most of the Galway pub music started much later than we expected-maybe 10 or 11. Early for some, but after a day of touring, we just wanted to relax at night. So we would head back to Banba and cook and play many games of Pinochle and sip wine and listen to Irish music on the computer.(so this is a pro/con comment) - No cons from me about the house. All in all, we had an absolutely wonderful time at Banba House. We would definitely return if we revisit Western Ireland. If anyone has any questions I may be able to answer please forward to me at Pat L

Owner's reply: Ah Meghan!!! To be sure, you are too kind, how nice of you to say such kind things about Banba House in your review.. Your group were lovely and it was my pleasure to pop over to the station and collect your luggage and bring it back to the house for you. I work hard at making all my guests as welcome as I possible can. I am dedicated to going that extra mile to help Banba guests have an enjoyable stress free experience and am always happy to help with travel plans, flights, arrivals at the airports,transport and directions. A quick phone call can take all the stress out of the journey and turn the day into an adventure as part of the holiday knowing, that when you arrive at Banba, we will have the house prepared perfectly and ready to the highest standards for your comfort and for you to enjoy. I love to cook, and its always a joy to set up a full carefully prepared freshly cooked table of the most delicious local fare. We would be delighted if you decide to visit us at Banba House in the future. Regards Ray McGrogan

“A totally unforgettable experience”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2014

We stayed at Banba House for five days to attend a family wedding in Galway, we could not fault the facilities at all apart from there not being a television ( not normally a problem but the Open Golf Championship was on). Raymond was always available to be contacted and he gave us a detailed account of Athenry. Banba House is within easy reach of the train and bus facilities. Athenry has a number of pubs where the locals were very friendly.

Owner's reply: Julie, you and your group were a pleasure to have as guests in Banba House and we hope to see you all again in the future, Your all welcome anytime. very best regards Ray

“Great Place to stay with Family”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2014

Had a great time with my Husband and 4 daughters. Plenty of room and privacy. Ray and Rita were great and helped with any questions.

Owner's reply: thanks so much, we have just received our certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor and we are thrilled to have our efforts recognized by our guests. Hope to see you aging sometime soon. regards Ray

“The house is much nicer than the photographs show.”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2014

Banba House was simply outstanding. We only stayed one night and if we didn't have somewhere else leased for the next few nights we would definitely have stayed longer. The photographs just don't do it justice. It is such a nice and comfortable home. Raymond, the owner, is such a nice person and very helpful. When we booked the place he emailed us with some ideas for sightseeing. It's literally just around the corner from the train station that you can catch into Galway ( a few minutes away ). We'll definitely stay here again the next time we visit Ireland.

Owner's reply: .............yes indeed we are trying harder than ever this year to go that extra yard to make our guests feel welcome, thank you so much for your kind comments. regards Ray

“Great time at Banba House.”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2013

When we arrived, Ray had two roast chickens, salads, bread, and wine waiting for us. What could be more perfect? The house is big and very comfortable and accommodated our group of 8 with room to spare. It's a great location...the train station is a block away and Galway a 15 minute train ride to the city center. There is a market around the corner and pubs within walking distance. You may even find Ray in one of them!

Owner's reply: ...thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us, your welcome here anytime. regards Ray
