Fàilte d'ar dachaidh


Explanation:
(Scottish Gaelic) - you can use either "dachaidh" (sometimes spelled "dachaigh," pronunciation is the same) which is "home," or "taigh" which is "house" like Irish "teach," and probably more common. More idiomatically you can put in "romhad" ("to you," literally "before/in front of you" to one person) or "romhaibh" (same thing to more than one person) after "fàilte."

Yet more idiomatically you could say "Fàilte is fuaran oirbh!" ("Welcome, welcome to you [plural]!") or "Fiath is fàilte romhaibh!" which means the same thing but is a little more formal/high-register. That one might be the best for something permanent like writing on a wall...
