The fixture is set to take place on 29 May as part of the English FA's celebrations to mark its 150 year anniversary.
The last time the Irish played England was 17 years ago at Lansdowne Road, when the game had to be abandoned after rioting broke out.
England will also take on Brazil and Scotland during its landmark year.
Club England Managing Director Adrian Bevington said: "As the most successful footballing nation, with great players and supporters, it will be fantastic to launch this important year in English football's history against such outstanding opponents as Brazil.
"We also look forward to hosting Republic of Ireland and Scotland at Wembley next year.
"These matches are sure to evoke great passion among supporters."
