It's the term usually used for a second home.

Thanks Caomhin!

Are there any more opinions/agreements in that?

:good:

Also, if I may add, you could say "holiday home" or a place where you spend a lot of time.

Thanks!

Would it also be a translation for „home from home“? Or is it more a translation for a residential second home like a second house i.e. in a different country?

Ó Dónaill gives:

athbhaile, m. (gs. ~, pl. -lte). Second home; home from home.

So, yes, it means "a home away from home".

ár n-athbhaile "our home away from home"
