World Rugby made the announcement along with a programme of autumn internationals.
International rugby was halted by the coronavirus pandemic in March, leaving four Six Nations matches left to play.
Ireland will welcome Italy to the Aviva before travelling to Paris to play the French.
Italy must also face England, while Wales will play Scotland.
This year’s autumn Tests are then expected to be replaced by an eight-team tournament in which the Six Nations sides will be joined by Japan and Fiji.
We can now look forward to a programme of international rugby later this year. Thanks to everyone who has made this possible.

World Rugby chairman Sir Bill Beaumont said in a statement: “The global Covid-19 pandemic has been unprecedented in its impact on society and sport and throughout this process, all parties have sought to deliver the best-possible outcome to support the interests of international and club rugby and the players.
“Agreement and approval of this schedule is exciting for players and fans and an important step in supporting our unions in mitigating financial impact and optimising the sport’s return from the pandemic in an equitable way.
“These matches will be greatly anticipated by all, and I would like to thank unions, the international and club competitions and players for their input and the fans for their patience as we have sought to get international rugby back up and running.”
