Benbradagh (from Irish Binn Bhradach, meaning 'thief's peak') is a mountain in Dungiven County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. It is the second most northerly summit in the Sperrin Mountains area and the 564th highest summit in Ireland. It rises to 465 metres (1,526 ft) and lies to the east of Dungiven. It was used from the 1940s to the early 1970s as a United States Military Base. It is popular with paragliders due to the steep terrain. The mountain is accessible via the Curragh Road which stops near the summit.

Benbradagh is also the name of a district electoral area centred in Dungiven which is part of the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council
