How do you get hit by his barrels in the first place?

It is not easy to hit people with gragas' barrel unless they WALK into it; because gragas has to pick a place for barrel to land, and wait for the barrel to get there before he can detonate it.

Which means if you just move to the side......

You have your net to reposition yourself after his ulti/before his barrel explodes.

Otherwise...spend a little money and get BV(you do zero dps if dead).

if u can dodge his barrels, you should be fine.

It might seem difficult, but you'll understand later on

A good Gragas player will position his barrels dependant on how and where you move. If you're running forward consistantly to dodge his barrels he'll probably start placing them a little a head of you to catch you in the AoE. If you move back he'll place it behind you. Try not to be consistant in movement enough for him to predict where you'll go. It's much like dodging Cho or Karths Q. With practice you'll get better at dodging and once that happens you almost nullify his early game.

A good Gragas does not use his barrels to harass, unless he's accomplishing a last hit for it. He harasses when he can and that's only when he can land his E for the slow for a guaranteed Q. Always have a creep/trap between you and him and run sideways not backwards when you get hit with an E or see an incoming barrel.

I suggest you play gragas to see how the barrel mechanic works. That will help you dodge them. Once you see you shouldn't be getting hit by barrels again.

The range of the barrel's detonation is actually fairly decent, so if you're not accustomed to fighting him it can be difficult, especially if (as it sounds like this one was good) the enemy player is well versed in using Gragas, and knows to throw the barrel out, and blow it ASAP. Unless he takes items which aren't the strongest for AP gains, he will not be as tanky/tough as a hybrid, so use this to your advantage. Constantly poke at him with your range, and for your own sanity & safety learn to use the net to escape from his range. If you are Caitlynn, you should never ben remotely in any area where he can Bodyslam into you.
