Beannachtaí na Féile would be most usual/closest - "Blessings of the Feast"

What is the context? You want it direct, or culturally on its own or translated like to use it orally?

As one would say in English, as in

"I wish you seasons greetings x"

as this culturally translates in Irish as: Happy Christmas x I would go for:


Nollaig Shona duitse/ daoibhse
[null-ig huna dit-shah/ d-iv-shah]
Happy Christmas to you/ ye

However:
May the blessings of Christmas (this festive season) be upon you or come upon you

Go raibh beannachtaí na Nollag seo ortsa
[guh rev ban-uckt-ee neh null-eg shuh urt-seh]
or
Go dtaga beannachtaí na Nollag seo ortsa
[guh dog-eh ban-uckt-ee neh null-eg urt-seh]

Cheers!
