An gceapann éínne nach bhfuil seo ceart? Measaim féin gur chóir "na bainis" a bheith ann.

How to differentiate between its pronunciation and the pronunciation of na páistí?

In correct Irish pronunciation (not with a heavy English accent like in the audio files), you would be able to clearly hear the difference. ‘á’ is more like the sound in ‘father’, whereas ‘ó’ is more like the sound in ‘road’.

Yes, what Julian said. They also differ in how st is pronounced. The phonetic transcription would be póstaí [pˠoːsˠtˠɰiː] and páistí [pˠɑːʃtʲiː]. Roughly "poh-stwee" (don't round your lips on the w) and "paash-tyee". They really shouldn't sound similar at all!
