There's no single answer to that. It depends what exactly you want.
Independent off licences (Bradley's of Cork, DrinkStore, Martin's, McHugh's, Redmond's) tend to have the best variety, and some will always have beers that others won't have.
Supermarkets do good deals on multibuys (Leann Folláin and the Boyne range in Tesco) if that's more important, but obviously selection is limited. There are some excellent beers which are exclusive to supermarkets and very cheap (Grafters range in Dunnes; Crafty Brewing IPA in Lidl).
Online is really just if you don't have access to a good beer shop near where you live.

Just taken delivery directly from 8 Degrees Brewery. Minimum order is 3 trays, but their 440ml cans work out at €2.91 each. Formed a syndicate with 3 others and got 4 different trays. Yummy

Over a certain volume is considered wholesale and allowed on a brewers licence from memory.

Speaking of that three trays rule, I heard there is some loophole that allows them to sell 3 slabs direct?

Correct, all brewers can do what 8 Degrees do if they wish but most choose not too for some reason
