The Ireland cricket team are currently touring England in July 2019 to play a one-off four-day Test match at Lord's. It will be the first Test match to be played between the two sides, and it will be England's first four-day Test match since they toured New Zealand in 1971. It will be Ireland's third Test match, and their twelfth international fixture against England.

The Test match will be part of England's preparations for the 2019 Ashes series. Ahead of the Test, the England cricket team visited Ireland in May to play a one-off One Day International (ODI) match. Ireland also played a two-day warm-up match against a Middlesex 2nd XI side at the Merchant Taylors' School Ground in Northwood.
