Riverstown, historically called Ballyederdaowen, is a village in County Sligo, Ireland. It is located at a bridging point of the River Unshin (Arrow), about 19 km (12 miles) south of Sligo town and 4 km east of the N4.

Notable buildings include the Garda Barracks, the Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic churches, Cooperhill House and the Post Office. There are also a number of pubs and shops. Each year the village hosts the James Morrison Traditional Music Festival during August and the Riverstown Vintage Festival during June.

In 2002 Riverstown and the Brookeborough Community Development Association launched the Riverbrooke Cross-Border Initiative linking the two villages in a programme of cross-community/cross-border working.
