Ilaro Court

Ilaro Court is the official residence of the Prime Minister of Barbados.

The house and gardens were designed by Lady Gilbert Carter, wife of a former Governor of Barbados Sir Gilbert Carter. The name Ilaro comes from a town in Nigeria where Sir Gilbert had served as Governor prior to coming to Barbados.

The house features a rectangular courtyard overlooking a swimming pool.

The grounds of Ilaro Court are beautifully maintained and play host to a number of social and cultural events throughout the year.

While not generally open to the public, the house is occasionally opened as part of the Barbados National Trust Open House Programme.
