Robert Walpole is a graduate of Trinity College and IADT Dublin. He jointly founded Treasure Films with director, Paddy Breathnach in 1992, after the success of their critically acclaimed short film, "A Stone of the Heart", which won the Special Jury Prize at the 1991 Cork Film Festival. During the 1990's Walpole proved to be one of the most prolific Irish producers, working on a variety of projects including shorts, TV series, documentaries and features.

Since the establishment of Treasure Films, Walpole has produced the feature documentary "The Road to America", the tale of Ireland's successful World Cup exploits; the drama, "The Long Way Home"; "W.R.H.," a gritty six part documentary series focusing on the regional hospital in Waterford, "The Charlton Years", the story of Jack Charlton's reign as manager of the Irish soccer team and the TV series "Home" for RTE.

Again with Breathnach directing, Walpole produced the feature "I Went Down" which was released in 1997 to much critical and commercial success, winning the Best Second Feature Award at the San Sebastian Film Festival.

Walpole co-produced the feature documentary "Southpaw - The Francis Barrett Story" directed by Liam McGrath and selected for the Sundance Film Festival in 1999. Recently Walpole also produced "Saltwater", directed by Conor McPherson from his play "This Lime Tree Bower" which received its premiere at the 2001 Berlin Film Festival.

In 2004 he produced Man About Dog with Simon Channing Williams, directed by Paddy Breathnach. A boisterous comedy, Man About Dog follows the exploits of three young men who entangle themselves in a web of crooked bookmakers and greyhound trainers. The film stars Allen Leech, Sean McGinley, Pat Shortt and Fionnula Flanagan. He produced another film about greyhound racing 'The Mighty Celt' with Paddy Breathnach and Paddy McDonald. The film was written and to be directed by Pearse Elliott and stars Robert Carlyle and Gillian Anderson and released in 2005.

Recent credits include Dare to be Wild, horror The Canal, which premiered in Tribeca, Viva, which made the Foreign Language shortlist for the 2016 Oscars, short The Nation Holds Its Breath which won best short film at the 2016 Dublin International Film Festival and Handsome Devil, John Butler's film about a rugby boarding school, which won best Irish Feature from the Dublin Film Critics Circle Awards and Dublin International Film Festival.
