The site of Kilmainham Mill was in continuous use as a mill from the sixteenth-century through to 2000 and is probably the only unaltered nineteenth-century fulling mill remaining within Dublin. A Conservation Plan was commissioned in 2001 in recognition of its significance, with planning permission granted in 2005 for a residential apartment development which arose out of the findings of the Conservation Plan. However the development has since stalled, and with the planning permission due to expire soon, there is a greater risk from dereliction to the site.
