Ailt an Chorráin or Ailt a' Chorráin (English name: Burtonport) is a Gaeltacht fishing village about 7 km northwest of Dungloe in The Rosses area of County Donegal, Republic of Ireland

The main employers in the village are the Burtonport Fishermen's Co-op and the Bord Iascaigh Mhara (Irish Sea Fisheries Board) ice plant. In recent years these establishments have been in decline due to the abandonment of fishing as a career and way of life by locals, due to depleted fish stocks and very restrictive fishing laws.
