For me the most difficult part of UK & Irish traffic is the traffic circles (roundabouts, as they say). I have no issues in driving my left hand drive car or a locally rented right hand drive car on the left, but come traffic circle my instinct makes me to turn right.
I have had some close calls, especially when arriving in UK with a ferry the first miles and traffic circles after driving off from the ferry.
