The Ireland cricket team toured Kenya in February 2012. They played two Intercontinental Cup ODIs, two T20s and an Intercontinental Cup match against Kenya.

Background

In early January 2012, it was reported at Ireland's tour to Kenya was in doubt due to security concerns at their Mombasa venue. These concerns arose with Mombasa being just 150 miles from the volatile Somali border, where recent high profile kidnappings and attacks have taken place. Cricket Ireland, liaising with the International Cricket Council, requested that the matches held at Mombasa be moved if their players security could not be guaranteed. However Cricket Kenya drew up sufficient security plans to allow the matches to take place at Mombasa.
