Hellholt, also called the Hellholt, is the seat of House Uller in southern Dorne. It is located near the source of the river Brimstone, east of Sandstone and west of Vaith. The Hellholt is a grim, stinking castle.

The Hellholt was founded during the Andal invasion by the Ullers, who were Andal adventurers. The castle is named after an event in which Lord Uller invited his rivals to a feast and then had them burned to death after locking them within his hall.
The Ullers vacated the castle at the start of the First Dornish War. After the Dornish attacked Nightsong and Oldtown, the Targaryens answered by unleashing dragonfire upon Dornish castles, including Hellholt. Rhaenys Targaryen and her dragon, Meraxes, were lost in battle attacking the Hellholt. The body of Rhaenys was never recovered, however, and some allege she was tortured within the Hellholt's dungeon.
