Hishult is a locality and a parish situated in Laholm Municipality, Halland County, Sweden with 332 inhabitants in 2010.[1]

The area has been a centre of iron extraction and formed a county, including parts of northern Skåne while it was Danish. The name might be related to the iron extraction as it used to be spelt Isenhult which might mean iron forest.
