Try to disable TCP checksum in every domU for every interface that connects
to the bridge.

Inside the domU's: ethtool -K eth0 tx off

I dont' know this for CentOS, but on debian-like systems the perfect place is
/etc/network/interfaces .

As an example:

iface eth0 inet static
        post-up ethtool -K eth0 tx off

You could try this via console first and watch if your network performs better.
