    You could try Sub City on Dame street, Or Forbidden Planet on Crampton quay. They are great shops.
    But If I was looking for 60's and 70's comics I would go into the New comic shop in St. Stephens green centre. https://www.facebook.com/htcomicsdublin
    They have a huge collection of Old comics, as well as most of the weekly US and UK comics.

    are these 3 that are mentioned the only ones left in Dublin?

    Your options are:
    Dublin City Comics on Bolton street. Mainly new issues and toys / collectables.
    Sub City on Dame street. New issues, decent trade paperback selection and some older issues
    Forbidden planet on the quays. New issues. Moderate trade paperback selection.
    Hidden treasures in Stephen's green. Tons of back issues, New issues.
    Big Bang in Dundrum, mostly new stuff, with an emphasis on indie titles also.

    I buy from them all on occasion, but Dublin City comics also provide me with my plastic crack so I shop there more often than not.

    Certainly worth a visit, tonnes of Back issues, decent amount of collectibles and a limited new section. Very friendly staff.

    Very true. Was only in the once but got talking to the guy working there and he was lovely. He also helped my gf's mother pick out some presents for me for Xmas just gone so that was cool!
