Tullynacross (from Irish: Tulaigh na Croise, meaning "hillock of the cross") is a small village in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, near Lambeg. In the 2001 Census it had a population of 159 people. It lies within the civil parish of Lambeg, the barony of Castlereagh Upper, and is situated within the Lagan Valley Regional Park and Lisburn City Council.
A major Coca-Cola owned bottling plant is sited in Tullynacross. Ulster’s very own water brand, Deep RiverRock, is bottled there. The plant is adjacent to a lock on the Lagan Canal (also known as the Lagan Navigation), and dominates the edge of the towpath where it meets Tullynacross Road. The site was formerly occupied by Lambeg Bleach Works and both chose the location because of the deep underground aquifer supplying large amounts of clean fresh water. A bleach green was first established here between the river and canal in 1626.
