World Cup finalists New Zealand and Australia will return to Dublin in November 2016 to take on Ireland in the Guinness Series.
Ireland will begin the Guinness Series against a Tier 2 nation on Saturday, November 12 before hosting World Cup winners New Zealand at the Aviva Stadium a week later on November 19.
The final game in the series will see Ireland host Australia at the Lansdowne Road venue on Saturday, November 26.
Ireland came agonisingly close to beating New Zealand when the All Blacks last visited Dublin in 2013, only for Aaron Cruden to kick a winning conversion after the 80-minute mark to secure a 24-22 victory.
Ahead of the Guinness Series, Ireland could bid to end the 28-match winless record against New Zealand in a proposed game at Chicago’s Soldier Field Stadium on Saturday, November 5.
The match has yet to be officially confirmed but it has been widely reported that the venture between the Unions of New Zealand, Ireland and the USA will be announced early in 2016.
