Are Dublin stopover allowed when booked with United miles

I am looking to get award tickets (on Aer Lingus) via United miles from Seattle to Rome via Dublin. Does anyone know whether I can get a stopover in Dublin for a few days ?
I dont have enough miles yet in my United account to actually test this out and want to know my options befoe transferring points to my United account.

UA awards no longer have stopovers, but they offer the excursionist perk. Because Ireland and Italy are in the same MileagePlus Award Region, you can book your award with three legs:
  • SEA-DUB
  • DUB-FCO
  • FCO-SEA
...for the same price that you would have paid for SEA-DUB // FCO-SEA (the DUB-FCO leg is "free" with the excursionist perk). If you wanted to stop in DUB on both the outbound and return flights, you will only get one of the DUB-FCO legs for free (and would pay extra miles for FCO-DUB, for example). If you are on a one-way award, you will need to pay for both SEA-DUB and DUB-FCO; it's no longer considered a one-way award with a stopover in DUB. If you search for SEA-FCO, you might find a very long (but less than 24 hour) connection in DUB but wouldn't be charged extra for the DUB-FCO leg.
