Let me begin by saying I am shocked and surprised at this review as I am hearing about any of these issue for the first time now. If you contacted me while staying in the apartment I would have gladly rectified any issues you may have had. As for the bare minimum I'm not sure what you mean. The apartment have 2 bathrooms, fully functioning kitchen with all new appliances, new beds and furniture, all new linen, fast internet and a view of the Galway Bay that you can't get anywhere else. I'd ask in future if you have anything that seems to be an issue you should contact the host and let them know so they have a chance to at least rectify any problems and not leave it until the review to air these problems.
