Ghobeiry (Arabic: غبيري‎; also spelled Ghbayreh or Ghabariyeh) is a municipality in the Baabda District of Mount Lebanon Governorate, Lebanon.

The inhabitants of Ghobeiry are predominantly Shia Muslims. Ghobeiry is in the same area as Shatila, the Palestinian refugee camp. The Ghobeiry Municipality and European governments have turned the site of the Sabra and Shatila massacre against the refugees in 1982 into a memorial of sorts.
