A woman living in Connemara has frequently come across some seriously terrifying looking spiders in her house.

Rachel Towey, from Furbo in Connemara, has seen various species of spiders make her way into her home in recent years, including cave spiders and cupboard spiders. 

According to the Irish Independent, the mother of two has found the spiders in compost bins, her children's toy box, and on her porch.

She said: "I've lost count of how many I've seen over the last few years to be honest."

"There were four in our porch. And since then, we were cleaning out a toy box before Christmas. It’s one of those old vintage steam trunks."

"We put it up on the table in the living room and two big ones crawled out of that."

"There were four dead ones in the compost bin that turned out to be cave spiders which are quite rare."

Rachel said that the spiders don't bother her personally, and that she doesn't feel the need the eradicate them from her house, although she is always intrigued to know what species they are.

She added: "They're always behind something. All my furniture is antique-y kind of furniture as well. They pop out of it."

She added: "I don't think they bother you, unless you put your hand near them or bother them. I think I'd hate if I was stung by a bee more. I'm not living in fear or anything."

We for one know that if we came across one of the terrifying looking spiders, we would be booking the next flight to the furthest place possible. But that's just us...
