Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin.
(Kneel ain tintawn marr duh hintawn fain.)

There's no fireplace like your own fireplace.
(Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.)

That's the simplest and I think one of the most appropriate.

Good luck

Is maith an scéalaí an aimsir.
(Time is a good storyteller)

Chíonn beirt rud nach bhfeiceann duine amháin.
(Two people see a thing that an individual does not see.)

Is ait an mac an saol.
(Life is strange.[Such is life])

Is iomaí cor sa tsaol.
(There is many a twist in life.)

These are some proverbs that my friend from Ireland recomended. He said that some people have painted these on their walls in their houses.

Good luck

Chíonn beirt rud nach bhfeiceann duine amháin.

Would that be "Two heads are better than one." or does it refer to something romantic, two people being together?
