Bleach Green (also known as Bleach Green Halt) is a former station operated Northern Ireland Railways in the village of Whiteabbey, County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

The station sat near the viaducts at the junction of the Belfast-Larne railway line and Belfast-Derry railway line, but only had platforms on the Larne Line tracks. It closed to passengers in 1977 when NIR services were cut back.[1] Today, thanks to later development work and track relaying, little trace of the station remains aside from space in the trackside vegetation where the platforms once were.
