I was wondering, how do you say "God bless our home" in Irish?

Go mbeannaí Dia an teach s'againne.

There are also blessings that are said when entering a house. One that strikes me as interesting (although the blessing is probably on the people more than the house) is:

Go mbeannaí Dia anseo. God bless all here. ("May God bless here [this place and those who live here]")

I think you got it right, except probably for the pronunciation of 'mbeannaí':

guh MAN-ee DJEE-uh un-SHUH

Ádh mór. (AH moar -- All the best)
