The River Bush is a river in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
The river's source is in the Antrim Mountains. From there the river flows northwest, with a bend at the town of Armoy. It then flows west, passing through Stranocum, and then bends north, passing through Bushmills before reaching the sea at Portballintrae.
The River Bush has traditionally been a salmon-fishing river, though the numbers dwindled in the late 20th and early 21st century.
The river is the source of water used for distilling Bushmills whiskey.
