The 25-year-old, who has been part of the Auckland set-up for four years, has played both sevens and 15s with the side.
He can cover the back three and midfield and will meet up with his new colleagues in the west of Ireland later this week.
Speaking at the announcement, head coach Pat Lam said Ili would provide yet another option for the Guinness Pro12 champions:
“As we look to challenge in both the Guinness Pro12 and European Champions Cup, the addition to our squad of a player like Stacey increases our options all across the back line. Stacey is someone we’ve been looking at for a while now. He is an exciting and skillful player who will complement the game we want to play.”
