No, the place is called "Great Britain". I didn't add that adjective, that's just what it's called.
UK is split up of 4 separate main regions. England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Ireland is on the left-side of the UK but on it's own island. For example, if you're referring only to the right island of the UK WITHOUT Ireland, it's referred to as the British Isles. If your labelling UK with all 4 regions then it's referred to as Great Britain. The latter is generally the global term to use if you're within the UK.
TL:DR - In summary:-
Country: United Kingdom > England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales =/= British Isles: England, Scotland, Wales =/= Great Britain: England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
