Lower Ballinderry is a small village to the west of Upper Ballinderry in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is within the townland and civil parish of Ballinderry. The village lies a short distance to the southeast of Portmore Lough (aka Lough Beg) and Lough Neagh, 12 km to the west of Lisburn. In the 2001 Census it had a population of 441 people. It is part of the Lisburn City Council area.

The village sits at a crossroads that linked the medieval church site of Aghagallon (Ballinderry Old Graveyard), and later to the Plantation site of Portmore Castle. The village has at its core Ballinderry Moravian Church, a listed building which along with other listed structures forms a distinct core to the settlement around the crossroads. It has a pre-eminently 18th century character, visible in buildings, in form and layout, and in the lime tree plantings.

The local primary school is Lower Ballinderry Primary School. There is an Ulsterbus service between Lower Ballinderry and Lisburn.
