Eden (also known as Eden Halt) was a station located in the townland of Eden, in and around the town of Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland. At one time it formed part of a tight cluster of stations, each located almost one minute from the other, from Mount through to Kilroot.

The station closed in 1977 when Northern Ireland Railways rationalised their services. It has now been dismantled.
