This image deserves more recognition then a one line comment.
I guess it takes a person who has actual shot long exposures to appreciate the technical challenges in making a great landscapes such as this. I don’t know how large a print you could get from this but it looks sharp enough to pull a 20x30 print out of it.
Nice conversion to B&W, it sets a “mood” for this heck yeah “awesome landscape”

the biggest print I tried at the moment is 329 x 483mm (13 x 19 inch) and may works also bigger ;)
Technical it's pretty simple 11 Stop ND compared with a 3 Stop graduated filter for the sky.
Still keep in mind safe your cam and filters for flares and enjoy the rain the moment :D
I don't remember the name of the photographer who told me, every bad weather conditions produce automatically great pictures :)
I also talked to some natives and they told the cliffs of moher are only the start point for awesome landscapes. In future I've to drive along the south coast of Ireland to enjoy pure nature and cliffs without tourist.

Thanks again.

This is gorgeous! I think black and white was the proper way to photograph this. I've always wanted to be able to shoot images like this, and you have it down to perfection.

Is a fantastic location and it feels bleak, cold and expansive. Cool
