where exactly is this location? i want to ride it someday and get a photo of me taken by a professional and then have a big poster sized framed pic that i can look back on one day in my 80's and say, "that was me..." then die.

is that high enough for BASE jumping? can i pack a chute as a precaution?

It's somewhere in Ireland, a place called the Cliffs of Moher.

open access yeah, but lots of signs telling you to stay back.. Lets just say, if you were suicidal, you would have NO problem finishing the job.

you can see in the one picture vertical stone slabs, thats really all that keeps you from taking a jump. lots of people sit right on the edge.
