Viscount Carrington, of Burford in the Province of Connaught, was a title in the Peerage of Ireland. It was created in 1643 for Charles Smyth, 1st Baron Carrington. He had only a few days earlier been created Baron Carrington, of Wootton in the County of Warwick, in the Peerage of England. His eldest son, the second Viscount, served as Lord Lieutenant of Worcestershire from 1687 to 1689. He was succeeded by his younger brother, the third Viscount. On his death in 1706 the titles became extinct.
