If you shot Jpegs using Adobe RGB, the pictures should look fine if you view them or print them using an application that reads the color profile. If you view them on a device using software that doesn't read the color profile, then they will likely be displayed as if the profile were sRGB. Pictures taken in Adobe RGB and displayed as sRGB will appear dull.

Using Photoshop, you can convert existing images, but you will experience some data loss. It will be worth it, though, to get more accurate color. Make sure you select convert color profile, not assign color profile. The assign color profile option doesn't change the color data but sets a flag stating what the embedded color profile is. That is useful in some situations, but not your situation.
