Ryans Cleaning

Ryans Cleaning is a real Irish business success story. Set up in 1985 by husband and wife duo Pat and Philomena Ryan, this Thurles based family business has grown remarkably over 30 years.

The company’s focus was initially to provide a professional cleaning service to the business community in Tipperary. Soon, the business took on an events cleaning focus after a successful cleaning operation rolled out for the famous Féile events in Thurles in the early 1990’s. From there relationships have been built throughout the industry and they have successfully completed the cleaning operations at some of the largest and most high-profile events Ireland and the UK has ever seen.

2005 saw the first transition across the water to the UK, V Festival was their first UK event and they continued to service this event 12 years later. This year the V Festival was replaced by the RiZE Festival and Ryans Cleaning also serviced this event. Ryans Cleaning are major players in the UK events industry and in 2012 this Irish company were even chosen to be the sole contractor for the Queens Jubilee at Hyde Park.
