Al-Qudayriyya was a Palestinian Arab village in the Safad Subdistrict. It was depopulated during the 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine on May 4, 1948 by the Haganah and the Palmach's First Battalion of Operation Matate, a sub-operation of Operation Yiftach. It was located 6.5 km south of Safad, situated 1 km east of Wadi al-'Amud.

In 1945 it had a population of 390. A shrine for a local sage known as al-Shaykh al-Rumi was located in the village and the Khirbat al-Nuwayriyya contained drafted masonry and rock-cut wine presses.
