Irish Blessings

Irish Blessings and Words of Wisdom

The Irish are famous for their Irish blessings and witty way with words. Some sayings are so well known that you might not even recognize them as blessings, while others have been handed down from generation to generation within a family. From traditional Gaelic blessings that have been around for centuries to more contemporary blessings, all offer a wee bit of wisdom, warmth, and inspiration, providing a positive outlook on life. After all, being an optimist in the face of troubles has always been a cherished Irish trait.

Ever Irish Gifts loves Irish blessings and sayings, and we want to share a collection of some of our favorites. Check back often—we will be adding to the collection regularly.

Through the good St. Patrick
May your home and life be blessed
With all the special things that
Make you happiest.


When times are hard, may sadness
Never turn your heart to stone.
May you always know,
When shadows fall,
You do not walk alone.


Bless your little Irish heart
And every other Irish part.


Bless the corners of this house
and be the lintel blessed.
Bless the hearth and table too
and bless each place of rest.
Bless each door that opens wide
to stranger, kith and kin.
And bless each shining window pane
that lets the sunshine in.


These things, I warmly wish for you:
Someone to love, some work to do,
A bit of sun, a bit of cheer.
And a guardian angel always near.


May luck be our companion,
May friends stand by our side.
May history remind us all
Of Ireland's faith and pride.


Bless this house as we come and go.
Bless our children as we watch them grow.
Bless our families, those gifts from above.
Bless our home with friends and love.


May you be blessed
With the spirit of the season,
Which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
Which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
Which is love.


In the coming year,
May you be blessed with
Warmth in your home,
Love in your heart,
And joy in your life.

May your past be a pleasant memory
Your future filled with delight and mystery
Your now a glorious moment
That fills your life with deep contentment


Walls for the wind
And a roof for the rain
And drinks by the fire -
May your home these contain.

May the Luck of the Irish
Lead to Happiest Heights
And the Highway You Travel
Be Lined With Bright Lights

Follow Your Bliss
And the Universe Will Open Doors
Where There Were Only Walls
                       -Joseph Campbell

May the sound of happy music
And the lilt of Irish laughter
Fill your heart with gladness
That stays forever after.

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.


May your neighbors respect you.
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And Heaven accept you.

May you have love that never ends,
Lots of money, lots of friends.
Health be yours, whatever you do,
May all these blessings come to you.

May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings
Right beside your door.



May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.



Like the warmth of the sun
And the light of the day,
May the luck of the Irish
Shine bright on your way.



May a rainbow run beside you
in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart
each day your whole life through.



There are good ships and wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships are friendships,
And may they always be.



May your troubles be less
And your blessings be more
And nothing but hapiness
Come through your door.



May God grant you many years to live
For sure He must be knowing
That earth has angels all too few
And Heaven's overflowing.

May your cottage roof be well thatched
And may those inside be well matched.
