Ireland will return to Test cricket for the first time since July 2019 when they take on Bangladesh from April 4-8.
The month-long Irish tour will feature a warm-up match, three ODI matches and three T20 internationals before the test in Dhaka.
This will be the first test between the two teams and the first senior multi-format series they have played.
The news comes after Ireland’s third ODI against Zimbabwe fell apart on Monday.
Zimbabwe had reached 55 to 1 in the 13th when rain forced the match in Harare to be abandoned with a no result subsequently declared and the series ending in a 1-1 draw.
Zimbabwe won the opener by three wickets before Ireland leveled the series with a 46 run win on Saturday.
The Irish squad travel to Bangladesh on March 11, four days before they face an as-yet-unannounced opponent in the warm-up match.
The ODI matches will take place in Sylhet while the T20 matches will take place in Chattogram.
Ireland’s only previous visit to Bangladesh for a bilateral series was in 2008, when they played a three-game ODI series in Dhaka.
The Irish have played in three Tests since being named full members by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2017, losing all three to Pakistan, Afghanistan and England.
Ireland will also face England in a four-day test at Lord’s from June 1-4.
