The Eir Spiders (previously known as the Golden Spider Awards, Eircom Spiders and sometimes as the Spiders) is an annual awards ceremony for Irish contributions to online and digital media across a number of categories.[3][4]

Established in 1996,[5] the awards are hosted by Business & Finance magazine and sponsored by telecommunications company Eir (formerly known as Eircom).[6]

A parallel set of awards for young people aged 19 and under, known as the Eir Junior Spiders, was established in 2009.[5][7]

As of 2018, the awards had reputedly come "under the umbrella" of the Dublin Tech Summit conference.[8]
