Holywell (Welsh: Treffynnon) is the fifth largest town in Flintshire, north Wales, lying south of the estuary of the River Dee.

The town is known for St Winefride's Well, a holy well surrounded by a chapel. The well has been known since at least the Roman period, and has been a site of pilgrimage since about 660 when Saint Winefride is said to have been beheaded there. The town bills itself as The Lourdes of Wales.

More recently, the town grew around the lead mining and cotton milling industries.

Holywell hosted an unofficial National Eisteddfod event in 1869.

Actor Jonathan Pryce was born in Holywell.
