Overlooking the River Liffey, The Aisling is one of Dublin’s best known hotels. This four-star hotel has already undergone reconstruction in recent times and they’re back again submitting planning for a further extension, this time a separate aparthotel a couple of doors down, on the corner of Parkgate Street and Temple Street West.
