    One thing you could try would be looking into the arp cache since
    bridge will be able to map the MAC address to the IP address.

I checked the ARP-cache, but there was no MAC / IP-address of my Xen instance :-( ...
You could make the domU ping the dom0, and that should put its IP into the ARP cache assuming that you're not routing the domUs.
