I was marked down for answering, "I was recently there." Would Gaeilge make some sort of distinction between these two sentences?

In Irish, temporal adverbs follow modal adverbs; in English, either order is possible.

Okay, so "I was recently there," is also correct, as it is in English. Thanks! :-)
