Wave heights of 50 Ft were already announced, but expectations were exceeded by reality:

According to information from "The Skipper", a monster wave measuring 30 Mtr – 98.4 Ft was recorded at 03:00 on Oct 28 by the Marine Institute M6 buoy located 200nm West of Ireland.

The wave generated by the tail end of Hurricane Epsilon was one of the highest ever recorded in Irish waters.
