Production continued on the site until the 1970's when distilling operations were transferred to Midelton, Cork. The old distillery building was later redeveloped as a visitor centre, which by 2016 had become outdated and no longer fit for purpose.
The Distillery has been refurbished to include repair of masonry fire chambers relating to two historic distilling coppers, structural upgrade of a significant timber trusswork beam and improved interpretation of the surviving industrial heritage. Internal refurbishment has been carried out to provide appropriate visitor facilities designed to meet the changing business needs of the client and to ensure that the Old Jameson Distillery remains a viable tourist attraction within the city.
