So! Here's an updated list of all the stores in Ireland that stock either manga or anime. Of course, buying online is probably your best bet but it's always nice to know what's available in Irish shops. I've linked to the sites of as many stores as I could - for the nationwide ones you can use their site to find a store nearest to you.
I'm always looking for new suggestions so if you can add something to this list, please comment
