What about his uninvited guests irked Bilbo?

If you are referring to the Sackville-Bagginses then they irk Bilbo because they always seem to be after his house, Bag End. This is because they were due to inherit Bilbo's vast wealth when he died, but the ring, giving him an unnaturally long life, prevented the Sackville-Bagginses from getting the inheritance they felt they deserved.If you are referring to the Sackville-Bagginses then they irk Bilbo because they always seem to be after his house, Bag End.

Why didn't Bilbo visit with his hobbit friends when he got home?

The reason he didn't see his friends the moment he returned to the shire was because he found out that his relatives were about to take possession of his home and he therefore had to deal with that crisis. And as for afterwards, I think it is too going far to assume that he didn't go see his friends. All Tolkien says is that Bilbo acquires over time a reputation for being odd and that many Hobbits shy away from him and his new reputation. That's a far cry from saying Bilbo is completely alienated from all his old friends and that he never goes to see them. Tolkien says very little about Bilbo's day to day life.
