Ardoyne (irlandais: Ard Eoin, « haut d'Eoin ») est un quartier majoritairement nationaliste du nord de la ville de Belfast en Irlande du Nord.

Il est connu pour les incidents qui sont arrivés pendant les troubles civils d'Irlande du Nord. C'est aussi dans ce quartier que la présidente d'Irlande, Mary McAleese, est née.
