The exact dates and venue for the historic match have yet to be decided, but the opponents have been confirmed.
Ireland have since established themselves during the course of several World Cups, recording one-day worldwide wins over Pakistan, the West Indies and England.
Pakistan is scheduled to tour England for two Tests, fives ODIs and a solitary T20I in May next year and Ireland hopes to use this window to organize the match at Malahide.
Ireland and Afghanistan were given Test status in June and Ireland have now secured a deal for Pakistan to be their inaugural opponents. With the chilly European conditions and a nervy Pakistan squad, Ireland might just be looking towards making a dream entry on cricket's most prestigious stage.
Pakistan are now seventh in the Test rankings, but were top of the pile as recently as previous year.
Both countries agreed to face each other during the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting in Auckland, New Zealand, today.
Cricket has been played in Ireland for almost 200 years, but it was not until 1969 that they made the rest of the world game take true notice when they bowled out the West Indies for just 25 at Sion Mills in a televised match.
Irish captain William Porterfield is delighted with the news. One is also reminded of the monumental defeat of Pakistan at the hands of Ireland at the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies, a point often called the turning point for Ireland Cricket. It's going to be a bit special and it's always great to be a part of history.
"Test matches have witnessed a decline in attendances in recent years, throwing the door open to a number of means to engage fans, including the introduction of day-night Tests". "We can hardly complain about compromising the traditional rhythms of Test cricket when Ireland hasn't played one yet", Deutrom was quoted as saying by Cricket Country last month".
