Yes it is. It is in honour of St. Patrick who is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. It is Ireland's national holiday, and also a day of holy obligation, meaning that people go to their churches on that day. Around the world where there are Irish people, it is celebrated, though it is not a holiday in all of those countries.
