Harold Barbour (1874–1938) was a unionist politician in Northern Ireland.

Barbour studied at Harrow School and the University of Oxford before becoming a company director. He was elected as an Irish Unionist Party county councillor, then served in the Senate of Northern Ireland from 1921 to 1929.[1]

Barbour was also active in the co-operative movement in Ireland, and his photographs of rural north and west Ireland in the early years of the 20th-century have been widely exhibited.[2]
