Ryan was given a place in Leinster’s academy for the 2016-17 season, but he couldn’t make his debut due to injury. However, the following season he was given an entire senior contract despite having completed only one of the normal three academy years.

He made his debut for Leinster on 2 September 2017 when he came off the bench in the province’s opening 2017-18 Pro14 win against Dragons, where he played for 21 minutes. He ended his first season by winning the European Champions Cup and Pro14. He would also win the Pro14 with Leinster in the next three seasons.

Ryan got his call for the Ireland squad for the first time ahead of the 2017 Summer Tour to the United States and Japan. Ryan made his debut for Ireland, coming off the bench and scoring a try, making him the first Irish player since Michael Bent to make his senior Ireland debut before his provincial debut.
