Absolutely. Or:

Tá grá agam duit (The version I'd use)
Táim i ngrá leat (Frequently used, but it's a borrowing from English.

Without getting philisophical or whatever... a lot of people profess that there's a difference between "loving some-one" and "being in love with some-one".

I love you
Tá grá agam ort.
Tá grá agam duit.

There is a verb "gráigh", although I've never seen it used.

I'm in love with you.
Táim i ngrá leat.

They're in love.
Tá said i ngrá.

"Mo ghrá thú" is the most common way of saying "I love you" in Irish.

A colorful idomatic way to put it is, "Tá mo chroí istigh ionat." - I love you very much.

"ionat" is a form of "i", second person singular

It means "in you"
