Barry, the son of Primark and Penneys founder Arthur Ryan, drowned off the coast of Baltimore last Tuesday.
He entered the water after his son, Barry Davis Ryan, attempted to save his girlfriend Niamh O'Connor, after she was swept into the sea by a freak wave.
Funeral Mass for the 51-year-old was held at the Sacred Heart Church in Rath, Co Cork today.
The search for Barry Davis Ryan is continuing.
Niamh O'Connor was laid to rest at the Church of the Sacred Heart in Glounthaune, Co Cork yesterday.
