I'd love to be able to play something like whats going on in this song, unfortunately there are no tabs i can find on the internet. Anyone got an ear good enough to figure out at least the key for me?

The song is in B minor. The chords are B minor, and A major, however, it moves into B major at the end of some lines (which is feature of some folk, and classical music). You probably won't find tab of it, but the guitarist is sticking pretty much to the chords, while using some scale work to add flavour. If you ever go to a trad Irish music session, you'll come across a lot of guitar accompaniment playing of this style. If you are interested in researching further Irish music, I can do you a list of required listening.

Thank you for your help. I've been to a few Irish music events with my family, and always loved the guitar style(present in some flogging molly's tunes even). I'd be happy to listen to any list you've got.
