The games will be played at Stormont in Belfast between 18 and 21 July, with Bangladesh to play an Ireland XI on 16 July.
"It's great news that we're taking on Bangladesh and the games will give us valuable preparation as we build towards the World Cup in Sri Lanka," said Ireland coach Phil Simmons.
"In Paul Stirling we have one of the most exciting players in international cricket at present and I'm sure the Belfast public will relish the opportunity to watch him on home soil."
Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan says Ireland will prove a tough challenge for his side.
He said: "Ireland are a very competitive side and in their conditions they will be formidable. However, we have a team that is brimming with confidence. We have proven match winners and some fresh faces who are tailor-made for the demands of T20 cricket.
"This promises to be an exciting contest," he added.
Ireland are eighth in the world rankings and won a recent qualifying tournament in Dubai.
