West Indies will host Ireland in a full limited overs series for the first time, when the two teams clash in three One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 next January.
The tour, which runs from Jan. 7-19, will see Kensington Oval in Barbados hosting the opening two day/night One-Day Internationals, with the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada hosting the final One-Day International.
Grenada will also be the venue for the opening T20 while Warner Park in St. Kitts will stage the last two matches.
West Indies currently holds the advantage in the head-to-head matchups, having won seven of the nine ODIs and two of the four T20s against the Irish.
They also beat Ireland in their last three One-Day Internationals meetings during the Tri-Nations Series in Dublin earlier this year.
Ireland secured Test status along with Afghanistan in 2017. West Indies are ranked ninth in the ICC One-Day International rankings, while Ireland is two places lower.
