I have a very similar setup here.

This sounds to me like being related only to routing stuff, rather than Xen.
I don't know if what I'm going to say is already implicit in what you
said, or very obvious to you, but to reach that public IP address in
question, the workstation from where you are trying to do this must to
have a route that leads to this IP, usually a gateway address.
Try thinking about the path the packet is following across the
network, and if there is routing rules enough to reach its destiny.

Even from dom0, you are subjected to the same rules. For example: to
ping some public IP address assigned to a domU's eth1, you should have
either a IP of the same network assigned to your physical eth2/peth2
(or a virtual ethX interface atached on xenbr2 bridge), or routes that
leads your packet from your dom0 to that domU's IP.

I'm not sure if I understood your scenario correctly, and I don't know
if I could be clear enough with this bad english, but at least, I
tried. =)

I hope this can help a bit. Good luck. =)
