Translation help needed!

Hi all,

I want to produced a house warming gift for a friend.

Their family name is Mulryan and I would like to have Mulryan's House or Mulryan's Home printed up for this gift.

Would anyone be able to tell me which would be the most appropriate way to write this statement As Gaeilge! i.e. Baile Mulryan or Teach Mulryan perhaps?

If you don’t want to convert the surname back to its original Irish form (Ó Maoilriain ) then it would be ‘Teach Mulryan’ or ‘Tí Mulryan’

Ah thanks!

And if I wanted to use the Irish form of the surname would it still be "Teach O Maoilriain"?

It would change to ‘Teach Uí Mhaoilriain’
