If you send to a Barbadian bank account, your recipient will need to wait for the funds to arrive.

How to decide which option is best for you to send money to Barbados.
To send money from Ireland to Barbados, you'll need the following:
Most providers require a driver's license, passport or other Irish government-issued ID. You can send transfers without the above but may need to give alternate ID instead.
Your options depend on the provider's services. Popular methods include cash, debit or credit card payments, bank account transfers and personal cheques.
You'll need their name (matching their ID) plus contact details. If sending to a Barbadian bank account, you'll need the a/c number, SWIFT and branch details.
To collect money in person in Barbados, the recipient will need:
The reference number - sometimes called a PIN, MTCN or tracking number.
A official ID, such as a Barbadian passport or driving license.
To know how much has been sent, usually to within 10% of the total.
The sender's name and address and the country from where the money was sent.
