It's one way to look at it, I guess. Although it would be a terrible curse then: they would have been conceived far from Harrenhal, never set a foot there, and were raised as members of a House unconnected with the cursed castle.

I wouldn’t associate the fate of Rhaenyra’s children with Harrenhal. They had enough stuff working against them without associating them with an unrelated curse.

The curse of Harrenhal caused the entire Dance. The Great Council took place there, cursing all the people attending, just as Lord Whent's tourney later set the stage for Robert's Rebellion and the aftermath.

Both Viserys I, Rhaenyra, and Aemond later associating with people from Harrenhal could also explain how things went as bad for them as they did.

It seems like that Littlefinger knew about this all, because its strange that a high lord like him doesnt visit his own castle for a short time. But i like the idea that i heard of an dragonfire (nucleair) waste. The bigger the dragon the stronger it is. Bellerion being the biggest and burndown and blacked alot of Harrenhall could be the cause of the curse. The only thing that make it less plausible is that Dorne was also set on fire many times, though we dont know what problems they have now.

Rhoynar knew water magic and it is possible that type of magic can "heal" any collateral damages caused by dragonfire. So if Dorne still had water warlocks or witches around when those flyind WMDs burned castles then they could have minimized possible fallout.

Interesting and its not said  the Dornish are not lunatic or cursed. The Martells are the only house that we know of and sunspear did not burn. Though the watermagic you mentioned will likely be used only close to water and by the houses closest to the rhoynar.
