The two sides meet for the first time since March 13 when Ireland drew 2-2 at the Drogheda Road Stadium.
The clash will be the first international fixture for the teams in over a decade and they will also be the last time the sides meet before the end of the campaign.
Leinsters coach Michael O’Neill said his side would be “delighted” to face Ireland.
“We’re looking forward to a fantastic first half of the season, a very difficult first half for us and we’ll see how we fare against them,” he said.
“I think that they’ve got some very good players in the squad, so it will be a big challenge for us to win our first game.”
The two teams meet again in a friendly at Dublin Stadium on November 25.
Ireland have won all three of their meetings with Leinstans this season, but the team’s recent form has seen them fall down the pecking order of European sides.
The match at Leinestory will be Ireland’s first against the French since 2014, when they were beaten 1-0 at the Millennium Stadium.
