Coordinates: Bendooragh (likely from Irish: Bun Dúraí, meaning "bottomland of black soil") is a small village and townland in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, 2 1⁄2 miles (4.0 km) south west of Ballymoney. It is situated in Borough of Ballymoney. It had a population of 622 people (217 households) in the 2011 Census.
The village is located at the edge of the Ballymoney/Coleraine Green Belt and developed over the post-war period from a crossroads cluster at the junction of the Bann, Drumahiskey and Bendooragh Roads. Bendooragh was the scene of a battle in 1642 where Irish rebels defeated a Government force under Archibald Stewart. During the 1950s public authority housing was built and in the past decade private housing has also been completed. A shop, post office, Orange Hall and fabrication works are located within the hamlet, and there is a church and church hall just outside on the Bann Road.
