The Luck of the Irish isn’t needed for a great night’s sleep but some Irish Proverbs could help.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, let’s look at some tried and true pieces of wisdom that just may help you snooze better.
1. Keep your shop and your shop will keep you.
Coinnigh do shiopa agus beidh do siopa tú a choinneáil.
It’s like the “you are what you eat” concept. We think you are like what you sleep on…a great mattress and perfect pillow will provide a great night’s sleep for a healthier life. If you’ve found your dream mattress, protecting the investment is key to keeping it in tip-top shape.
More information on mattress protectors can be found in our Learning Center.
2. A handful of skill is better than a bagful of gold.
Is fearr lán doirn de cheird ná lán mála d’ór.
Look beyond the colorful arches of the Rainbow. The perfect mattress is worth it’s weight in gold. When it comes to a piece of furniture that we spend about a 1/3 of our lives on the more skill involved in crafting it the better.
3. Your feet will bring you to where your heart is.
An áit a bhuil do chroí is ann a thabharfas do chosa thú.
This sparks memory of a long-running family joke. Why to do you go to bed at night? (any guesses??? no cheating) Give up? Because the bed won’t come to you!
Ba-dum-tsh. Love is a good nap and a peaceful night’s sleep.
4. Put silk on a goat and it is still a goat.
Cuir síoda ar ghabhar agus is gabhar i gcónaí é.
In the case of sleep, put Luxurious Egyptian Cotton sheets on a beat up worn out ol’ lumpy mattress and it’ll still be a less than comfortable sleep experience. Catch our drift.
5. A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.
Tá caint ann agus codladh fada an dá leigheas is fearr le haghaidh rud ar bith
Just what the doctor ordered, sweet and simple. We already gave you a riddle and hopefully a laugh with Proverb #3.

We’ll make finding the right mattress for you way easier than finding a 4-leaf clover.
