It’s takeout only at Izz Café this week.
The award-winning Palestinian café on George’s Quay has announced it is closing the doors to in-house diners for a fortnight as the business completes a renovation project.
The eatery opened in 2019, with Palestinian owners and seasoned farmer’s market traders Izzeddeen and Eman Akarajeh quickly earning the respect of local food critics at their first bricks-and-mortar endeavour.

Izz Café recently caught the attention of travel presenter and Masterchef judge Leyla Kazim, who dropped in for a feast of house hummus, tabbouleh, babaganoush, makdous, and traditional Palestinian magloubeh (a succulent dish of chicken, fried potatoes, and fried aubergines) during a visit to Cork.
“We shall be open only for delivery and takeaway for the next two weeks while we renovate our premises.” Izz, who officially became an Irish citizen over the summer, posted on Instagram.
“We would also like to extend a thank you for all the kind support messages received during the troubles of the last few days.”
