I believe this practice originated from the Bible verse, Peace be upon this house, and all who enter here, so it’s pretty widespread, but it is something that used to be said in Ireland a lot, but it’s usually a longer blessing. I think, “God bless this house, and all belonging to it” is the way I always heard it.
