Loyalty Dílseacht
Tranquility suaimhneas

For a correct translation of harmony & serenity I'd need some context, please!

Assuming you mean harmony between people, the word you are looking for is
Comhréir

Serenity could be translated by Sáimhe

But be very careful how you use these.

In Irish, the sense you want may be better reached by a different idiom.

Word for word translations are seldom correct, and usually unintentionally humourous.

I'm looking for the translation of a phrase...riding, if only in my dreams. If someone could help, Thank you, Seamus.
