Irish has several words which can be used for the English word "honor", depending on the context. Rather than a literal translation using any of them, though, the FGB dictionary offers this Irish expression for that stock English expression:

Ar m'fhocal agus ar m'fhirinne
"On my word and [on] my truth"

Note that, in Irish, it's often necessary to repeat prepositions such as "ar" (= "on").
