Prior to the closure of the jail in the Northern Irish beach resort, Lisnevin Training School is believed to have been in use between the 1950s and 1980s. Since then, urban explorers have wandered the expansive property. Even though the main structure of Woburn House is not accessible, they managed to get past the outer fence to inspect neighbouring Lisnevin.

The main structure, Woburn House, was constructed in the 1800s and served as a holiday home for rich Belfast mill owner John Gilmore Dunbar. However, the state-run Millisle Borstal converted it into a residential institution for juvenile offenders. The facility held young criminals, with an estimated 40 boys between the ages of 10 and 17 reportedly being confined within the prison-like building that now has creepy hallways and fading Looney Tunes characters paintings on its walls.

In an effort to find a scary new area of the building, TikTok users are now exploring the cramped passageways. Dental chairs straight out of a horror film were discovered inside. Although Sylvester the cat may have thrilled fans of Looney Tunes, seeing him on the discolored walls of the abandoned jail was very unsettling. The barbed wire fence on the outside made things even more disconcerting.

One building's roof is covered in thick coils of barb. However, urban explorers won't find anything within the long, empty passageways as most of them have been left untouched for far too long. According to The Sun, the estate as a whole was sold in 2016 for a whopping £1.75M(~$1.95M).
