Ireland will take on South Africa, Australia and a leading European Tier Two nation at the Aviva Stadium in November 2014.

South Africa, who are currently No.2 on the IRB World Rankings, provided the opposition for the opening fixture of the 2012 November series and will again be Ireland's first end-of-year opponents as the two sides square off at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, November 8.

Ireland will be looking to record their fifth victory over the Springboks since the two countries first met at the Balmoral Showgrounds in 1906.

A week later on Saturday, November 15, Ireland will take on a leading European Tier Two nation at the Aviva Stadium. Georgia, who have serious 2015 World Cup qualification ambitions, are the most likely opposition for this Test.

Ewen McKenzie's Australia will return to the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, November 22. The Wallabies are the third-ranked nation in world rugby following a successful end-of-year tour which saw them record wins over Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Italy while losing narrowly to England.

The three games are scheduled to take place on consecutive Saturdays and kick-off times for each match will be confirmed at a later date.
